PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

A beautiful, but self-absorbed prince gets the chance to help an old raggedy lady, but he treats her badly. She turns out to be a beautiful woman with magical skills and she throws the prince into a spell of ugliness and loneliness. His staff is transformed into... well objects to do with their profession. He gets a magical mirror to watch the world through in his isolation. He needs to learn to love a person for who they are, and get them to love him before a magical rose he also is given loses its petals.

In the village a beautiful young girl feels lonely and misunderstood. She daydreams about getting out, getting a better life, meeting a prince. Her father is a "nutty professor". He goes off to compete at an inventors' fair but gets lost in the woods and ends up a prisoner at the beast's castle. Belle, the girl, goes looking for him, finds him there and pleads to let her father go, in return for her staying there with the beast. It's a done deal and Belle is now trapped in the castle with the beast and his magically transformed staff. She reads books, enjoys musical numbers such as "Beauty and the beast" and "Be our guest", and manages to fall in love with the beast. In the village the ignorant and manly Gaston is upset that Belle isn't interested in him. When her father claims she trapped with a beast, Gaston sees the opportunity to have him committed to a mental hospital, thereby forcing Belle to marry him. This almost works, but the beast lets Belle out and she is just in time to save her father and prove there is a Beast. She shows them the magical mirror and Gaston takes a posse to go and kill the beast. And the ending begins....
