The 2014-2015 Broadway in San Antonio season is almost here and tickets are now on sale for the touring production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. This award winning Broadway musical is coming to the Majestic Theatre for eight performances only from September 30 through October 5, 2014. It is suitable for all ages.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is the musical based on the 1991 movie of the same name with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. It is the story of a prince who is transformed into a hideous beast as punishment for his cruel ways and a young woman named Belle whom he imprisons in his castle.
When an old beggar woman comes to the prince’s castle asking for refuge from the cold he cruelly turns her away. Upon being rejected, the woman turns into a beautiful enchantress and transforms the prince into a beast and his servants into household items. She then gives him a rose in an hour glass and tells him that the only way to break the spell is to learn to love another and earn her love before the last petal falls.
Years later, Belle, a young beautiful woman from a small town, wanders into the woods looking for her lost father. She finds him imprisoned inside Beast's dungeon and strikes a deal with Beast that allows him to go free but she must remain behind. Soon they become friends and eventually break the spell when they fall in love and Beast is returned to his human form.
