It’s a tale as old as time. Boy meets girl. Boy falls for girl. Girl doesn’t know what (or who) she’s got until it’s almost too late. But in this case, the boy is a prince doomed to live life as a beast due to his arrogant spirit. His only hope at breaking the spell is winning the heart of a girl from a small provincial town in France who arrives at the Beast’s home hoping to free her aging father. Based on the beloved Academy Award–winning Disney classic film, this popular Broadway musical brings all of your favorite characters to Bass Performance Hall. This unforgettable performance will have you singing, laughing and perhaps even crying as you take in the romance and enchantment of this unique love story.
With lavish sets, intricate costumes and dazzling production numbers in store, Beauty and the Beast comes to life on the stage through the talented men and women of the Performing Arts of Fort Worth. You’ll recogonize all the familiar characters from the 1991 animated classic including Belle, Maurice, Mrs. Potts, Cogsworth, Lumiere, Chip and Gaston as they perform sing-a-long songs like “Little Town,” “Be Our Guest,” “Something There” and, of course, the title track, “Beauty and the Beast.”
Ready to take a walk down memory lane? The nostalgia begins Jan. 14 with eight shows taking place through Jan. 18, and the event is sure to draw a packed theatre. Go ahead and make a resolution to feel like a kid again. It’s one you’ll be happy you kept.
