Breakdown

Audition Central: Disney's Beauty and the Beast JR.

Character Breakdown: Beast

The Beast is a young prince who was hideously transformed by the Enchantress s spell. Casting for size is not as important as choosing a student who can handle this complex character: a dictator, a hurt child, a hero, a defender and a smitten prince. Cast an actor who can deliver a range of conflicting emotional states. Although the Beast does sing a small bit during  Something There and the  Finale, this is truly an acting role (and his lyrics can be spoken if you cast a non-singer). If you choose to cast the Prince separately from the Beast, the Prince would end up singing the Beast s lines in the  Finale.
