Hard Road Theatre Productions, in association with the Highland Arts Council and sponsored by Bradford National Bank, invites you to join in an evening of magic and enchantment as they present Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr.
Adapted from a French fairy tale and based upon the Disney movie and stage show of the same name, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. is a fantastic adaptation of a story of transformation and tolerance. 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.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, including Be Our Guest and Beauty and the Beast. The show also features new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice that were written for the Broadway stage show.
Directed by Gentry Nessel, the cast for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. includes more than 50 students from several different communities including Highland, Greenville, Troy, Marine, St. Jacob, Hillsboro, and Collinsville.
Hard Road Theatre Productions is a non-profit theater organization committed to providing the greater Highland area with high-quality, affordable, live theater productions.
