‘Be Our Guest’ as the most enchanted musical of all time, Beauty and the Beast, comes to the Algonquin Theatre for the annual HfA/Rotary Spring Musical running from March 24-April 2, 2023.
Featuring over 50 local cast & crew members, this “tale as old as time” has thrilled more than 20 million people worldwide with show-stopping musical numbers, astonishing sets, and lavish costumes. 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. A storybook theatrical experience your whole family will love!
