Join us for our Intergenerational Production of Disney’s Beauty & The Beast featuring a unique cast of 53 children, teens and adults including Cleveland’s own Kevin Kelly performing as the Beast and Trinidad Snider as the enchanting Belle. Based on the Academy Award winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs from the film, written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman. Artistic Director, Bob Navis Jr., will transport cast members and audiences alike to the lovely French provincial town where the beautiful Belle lives with her father – an eccentric inventor. When her father doesn’t return from a trip to the local fair, Belle rushes off to find him. To her dismay, she discovers he is being held captive in an old castle by a horrible beast. She trades her freedom for his and the “tale as old as time” begins….magical rose, dancing silverware and all!
