Description:

Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that played a remarkable 13-year run on Broadway and has been produced in 37 countries worldwide. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. This "tale as old as time" is filled with spectacular storytelling and is family theatre at its best.

This production will be performed indoors at Tomahawk Creek Middle School.

Welcome to Beauty and the Beast!
Congratulations to the cast of Beauty and the Beast! We had a wonderful weekend of auditions and callbacks with you, and now we cannot wait to see you bring these enchanting (and enchanted!) characters to life.

Your production fees are now active in your family account. Please pay these by this Friday, September 17th. This weekend, ALL CAST are called to both days of rehearsal (Friday, 6-9PM and Saturday, 9:30AM-4:30PM). All rehearsals will be held at KingsWay Community Church (14111 Sovereign Grace Dr.
Midlothian, VA 23114). Additionally, a parent meeting will be scheduled for this Friday at 7:30PM at KingsWay. One parent/guardian per student is required to attend. More show and rehearsal info will be sent out this Tuesday evening, so keep an eye on your email.

As always, casting a show is a difficult process - with so many talented people to consider for a limited number of roles, the artistic team had a real challenge ahead of us this past weekend, but is confident in the creativity, imagination, and talent of this cast. If you would like feedback on your audition or callbacks, we ask that you wait at least two weeks (9/27) to contact the artistic team at so that we can focus on the front-end preparation needed to begin rehearsals. 

This is certain to be a magical musical and beautiful telling of this “tale as old as time.” Let’s get started!

Sincerely,

The Beauty and the Beast Artistic Team
