The Grand Opera House is inviting you to be their guest for Disneys Beauty and the Beast, the award-winning hit Broadway musical. Part of the Broadway Series, Beauty will come to life on stage Wednesday and Thursday.
Disneys Beauty and the Beast features the animated films Academy Award-winning score, with additional songs composed by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice. The book is written by Linda Woolverton.
We are thrilled to present the first professional production of a Disney musical in central Georgia, said Roseann Swiergosz, the newly appointed executive director of the Grand. Beauty and the Beast is a story everyone knows thanks to the blockbuster film. Audiences of all ages will delight at the energy the live musical brings to beloved songs and scenes.
The performance tells the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by 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.
This production launched in February 2010 and has been seen by more than 2 million people.
