Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is one of the most beautiful and best loved of their animated films.
Now there is a chance to see it performed on stage by a talented group of young actors and musicians .
Stowe Music and Drama presents the show at 7.30pm from Tuesday (February 9) through to Thursday 11 in the Roxburgh Hall.
Anyone who wants to attend is welcome and there is no charge for tickets, but patrons are asked to join Arts at Stowe membership on the night for £10.
This annual subscription will give entry to the show as well as many other membership events.
Alex Aitken, head of academic music at Stowe, is the driving force behind the show, with help from Deborah Howe.
Disney created the animated film in 1991, using a French fairy tale by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont.
The musical theatrical production hit Broadway and the West End in the 1990s.
Now, the talented young actors and musicians from Stowe perform the story of the prince who is transformed into a hideous beast as punishment for his cruel and selfish ways, and an adventurous young woman named Belle, whom he imprisons in his castle. In order to become human again, the Beast must earn Belle’s love before it is too late.
Go along and be charmed by this cautionary tale with all the charm of the Disney songs.
The show is two hours 40 minutes including an interval, and is not suitable for children under the age of seven.
