Beauty and the Beast, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and book by Linda Woolverton, tells story of the independent Belle and the Beast with the soul of a prince as they cast an enchanting spell over the audience. This “tale as old as time” follows the adventures of Belle, a bright young woman who finds herself imprisoned in the castle of a mysterious beast. With the assistance of the castle's enchanted staff, a delightful and tender romance develops between these two unlikely friends and Belle soon learns the most important lesson of all — that true beauty comes from within.
