This 1994 musical – Disney’s first official foray into stage musicals – burst onto Broadway with astonishing special effects, a whirlwind of choreography, and an awe-inspiring set. Based on the animated favorite of the same name, the musical remains familiar. From the quaint village and Belle’s father’s – an inventor – home to a towering, storm-worn castle is accounted for in this stage adaptation.
A cinematic musical of this nature often requires multiple settings with dynamic visuals - often requiring substantial fly and wing space (and budget) to make it a reality. We can solve complex musicals of this nature using projected digital scenery. Our Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Scenic Projections feature stunning artistry and special effects for every magical moment in the script.

Theatrical titles from Disney are a great way to introduce your students to theatre using characters and stories with which they are undoubtedly familiar. Combine them with a 60-minute or 30-minute Broadway Junior runtime and you’ve got yourself a show that’s easy to teach and fun for your kids to learn and perform!
