8 Dates Through Jun 26, 2022

The Historic Royal Theatre proudly presents Royal Players production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast.  This production, made possible by our sponsorship with Everett Chevrolet, will be opening Summer 2022.  An international sensation that has been produced in 37 countries worldwide. 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. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. 

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 into 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.

This "tale as old as time" is directed by Bob Bidewell, with music direction by Jeannie Cross, choreographed by Olivia Stephens, and stage managed by Emma Boone.  Our breathtaking cast is Marcia Brown, Tanner Oglesby, Anjelica Ridgeway, Danny Troilett, Kurt Leftwich, Hayden Griffis, Jayden Sprout, Matthew Burns, William Alverio, Olivia Hatton, Amanda Gilmore, Denver Allen, Karena Malott, Katelyn Compton, Shelby Loftis, Lauran Belk, Taylor Bumann, Grace Curtis, Bethany Davis, Hannah Grace Fritz, Rylee Woodard, Carl McBride, Steven McConkie, and Chase Albaugh.
