Beauty & Beast Waltz into the Palace

Tale as old as time, true as it can be. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, the award-winning worldwide smash hit Broadway musical, is waltzing its way to the Palace Theater in Waterbury as part of the Webster Broadway Series, sponsored in part by WTNH/MvTV9 and the Brass Mill Center. Produced by NETworks Presentations, the all-new National Touring Broadway production of this enchanting love story comes to life on the Palace stage March 12-14.

Based on the Academy Award®-winning animated feature film, this eye-popping spectacle recounts the story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved in return, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. This classic musical love story is filled with unforgettable characters, lavish costumes, and dazzling production numbers featuring music from Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman’s original Academy Award®-winning score, including “Be Our Guest” and the beloved title song.

The original creators of the Broadway presentation are together again for this new touring production. The play is directed by Rob Roth and choreographed by Matt West, with Costume Design by Ann Hould-Ward (Tony Award® winner for her work on Disney’s Beauty and the Beast), Lighting Design by Natasha Katz, Scenic Design by Stanley A. Meyer, Sound Design by John Petrafesa Jr. and Music Supervision by Michael Kosarin.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has become an international sensation, playing to over 35 million people worldwide in 21 countries.
