Broadway Junior Version

Be Our Guest! The Academy Award-winning film comes to life in this romantic and beloved take on the classic fairytale. (60 Minute Version for Young Performers)

Step into the enchanted world of Disney's Beauty And The Beast JR. Featuring songs from the Academy Award-winning animated feature, this stage version includes music by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. 

The classic story tells 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 to 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.

With many fun supporting roles allowing students to play objects inside the castle – Cogsworth the clock, Lumiere the candelabra, and a host of others – as well as opportunities to expand the cast by adding villagers, servants (including dancing flatware), and narrators, this "tale as old as time" is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities. Even when staged simply, Disney's Beauty And The Beast JR. offers students a great introduction to musical theatre, using familiar songs and characters to guide them through their production.

The original production of Marry Me A Little was designed to take place on the set of a play already running at the theatre about single-occupancy hotels —hence the concept of two people living in separate apartments.
