Be our guest and step into the enchanting world of Beauty and the Beast, a heartwarming musical celebrating the power of love.

This classic story follows Belle, a smart and independent young woman, in a provincial town, and the Beast, a prince trapped in a monstrous form by a wicked spell. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end transforming him to his former self. But time is running out and if he doesn’t quickly learn his lesson, he and his entire castle will be doomed forever.

Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over 13 years, it has some of the most beloved songs of all time. With numbers like “Be Our Guest” and “Beauty and the Beast,” this visually stunning musical is perfect for young performers and audiences alike. Come sing along with this talented cast of fourth through eighth graders to the very end.

Mark your calendars for a magical experience the whole family will enjoy. Tickets are now on sale.

Disney's Beauty and the Beast is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com

The Winchester Cooperative Theatre for Children was founded in 1979 to provide elementary school children with the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive theatrical experience. In 1990 the program expanded to include a middle school production.
