Disney’s Beauty and the Beast features the animated film’s Academy Award®-winning score with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by the late Howard Ashman, with additional songs composed by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice, and book by Linda Woolverton.
It will play The Topfer at ZACH Theatre, July 11 – September 2, 2018. Directed by ZACH Associate Artistic Director Abe Reybold, with musical direction by Allen Robertson and choreography by Sara Burke, it’s a true tour de force.
This “tale as old as time” follows Belle, a book-smart and adventurous young woman and Beast, a formerly dashing young prince cursed by an enchantress. If the Beast cannot learn to love and be loved in return, he and his household including Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and Chip will be trapped forever under the spell. The Broadway smash hit showcases a merry, award-winning score with such favorites as “Beauty and the Beast,” “Gaston,” and “Be Our Guest.”
This delightful family musical enchants and transforms hearts of all generations and you’ll see some ZACH favorites like Briana Brooks, Matthew Redden, Martin Burke and Meredith McCall, to name but a few.
