Monroe Theatre Guild Presents "Disney's Beauty and the Beast"
November 21, 2019
Monroe Theatre Guild is pleased to present a family classic for the holidays, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, based on the book by Linda Woolverton. Directed by MTG Director Jackie Ceithamer, and choreographed by Ashley McKinney. Performances will be at the MTG building, December 6 through 15.
The talented cast, comprised of nearly 50 local actors and actresses between ages 10 to 50, sing and dance as they portray popular Disney characters. This is the classic story 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. Disney's Beauty and the Beast is a traditional family favorite featuring popular Disney songs such as "Be Our Guest", "Gaston", and the song as old as time, "Beauty and the Beast".
Disney's Beauty and the Beast, part of the Colony Brands performance series, will be performed on the Colony Brands Stage at the Monroe Theatre Guild, 910 16th Avenue, Monroe.
