Description

Musicals at Richter (MAR), Connecticut’s longest-running outdoor theater, kicks off its 40th season with the scintillating musical, DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, playing July 5-20. Staged on the grounds of the Richter Arts Center (next to Richter Park Golf Course), 100 Aunt Hack Road, in Danbury, performances take place outdoors under the stars Friday through Sunday evenings, with additional specially discounted performances on Thursdays July 11 and July 18.


ABOUT BEAUTY AND THE BEAST:

Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's classic, DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, 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" brings the entire community together for family theater at its best. The tuneful score features such well-known favorites as "Be Our Guest," "Belle," "If I Can't Love Her," "Gaston," "Human Again," and "Beauty and the Beast."


DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International (MTI). The production is directed by Donald E. Birely, with music direction by Ben Doyle and choreography by Matthew Farina.
