Nelson Youth Theatre Company presents a fantastic story of transformation and tolerance.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice, including "Belle", "Be Our Guest", "Human Again" and of course "Beauty and the Beast".
The "tale as old as time" tells the story 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.
