Beauty and the Beast
by Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired
The students at TSBVI invite you to "be our guest" for a one-time-only streaming of this wonderful story of transformation and tolerance. Based on the original Broadway production that was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR is a fantastic adaptation and features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The book is by Linda Woolverton.
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.
In the spring of 2019, TSBVI produced Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Jr. Playing to full houses and standing ovations, it was a resounding success. At that time it was filmed for archival purposes. That video is ready and it is FANTASTIC!
Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST JR is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
