Disney’s Beauty and the Beast musical
You already know the story of Belle, a beautiful young woman who doesn’t quite fit in in the little village where she lives with her beloved eccentric father, Maurice. When her father offends the owner of an enchanted castle Belle trades her freedom for his.
She keeps her word to return to be kept prisoner by the beast who owns the castle. Surprisingly, she befriends the castle inhabitants who work their hardest to make her feel at home. With your favourite songs from the movie like ‘Be Our Guest’, ‘Gaston’ and ‘Something There’ as well as special songs created specifically for the stage musical, this show has enchanted audiences around the world.
Beauty and the Beast London Cast and Creatives
No casting has been announced for the UK and Ireland tour and a West End run is yet to be confirmed. Beauty and the Beast has a history of incredible casting, so we expect this cast to be no different.
Beauty and the Beast and features a book by Linda Woolverton, music from Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and lyrics from Tim Rice and Howard Ashman. Additional creatives will be announced in due course.
