More than a provincial life for Beauty
Community theater at its finest, The Grand Rapids Players present the Broadway Musical “Beauty and the Beast” with a cast of talented actors ages 8 to 80. Directed by Jean Goad.
Beauty and the Beast is rooted in an 18th century French fairy-tale. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical and gained even more popularity when Walt Disney released it as a movie. Prince Adam, (Jim Cagle) cursed to a beast form by an enchantress who thought his arrogant heart had no love for others, is destined to live his life as a monster. With only one way to break the spell, the Beast “must learn to love another and earn her love in return before the last petal from his enchanted rose fell”, which would bloom until his twenty-first birthday.
Beauty and the Beast is performed with permission from MTI, Music Theatre International and made possible, in part, with a generous contribution from The Blandin Foundation.
