The musical was well received by all who attended and audience members marveled at the costumes, set, special effects lighting, the rose that actually lost petals, and most of all, the talent of the Wahoo High School students who brought the show to life!

Little girls showed up in their Belle dresses and posed for pictures afterwards. Others bought glowing roses to light up as the spell was broken and the beast turned back into the prince. Special effects laser lights filled the theatre as the magic came to life. 

Another highlight was enjoying root beer floats in Gaston’s tavern after the show.

This is a show that will not be forgotten any time soon, especially by the directors, cast and crew. They all agree that it was quite a challenging journey, but the hard work paid off and was well worth it. Thanks to everyone who came to “BE OUR GUESTS” for a very special show that will always live in our hearts and be a fond memory for years to come.

Synopsis:
 

Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST! Based on the Academy-Award winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.

Your audiences will be transported to the heart of provincial life in a lovely French town. When Maurice becomes lost in the woods on the way to the fair, he seeks shelter in an old castle, but the master of the castle is a horrible beast that takes him captive. Maruice's daughter, Belle, must then give up her freedom to save his life. Belle's taming of the unfortunate Beast and his ultimate transformation back into a handsome prince enthralled Broadway audiences for over 13 years.

This "tale as old as time" is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities, or even more simply staged, Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST offers a great opportunity to bring your entire community together for family theatre at its best.
