Pre-Show - Since you may be seated 30 minutes prior to the show's start,
there is frequently a live performer(s) to entertain you while you wait.
Recently, the act has been the excellent a cappella group Four for a
Dollar. They're definitely worth a listen!
Beauty and the Beast - From the popular Be Our Guest to the moving strains
of "Tale as old as time..." this 20-minute show mirrors the
film upon which it's based. It tells the story of Belle, a beautiful
but bookish girl who lives in a small French town. She is pursued by
the macho Gaston, to her dismay, for she yearns for a different life.
Her father, Maurice, stumbles upon the enchanted castle of the Beast,
and, to free him, Belle offers herself as prisoner in his stead. Under
the anxious eyes of Mrs. Potts, Lumiere and Cogsworth, among others,
Belle grows to love the Beast and, despite the efforts of the townspeople
led by the jilted Gaston, the couple manages a fairy tale ending, complete
with the release of a flock of white doves.

Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage
Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage is a beautiful show based on Disney's
30th full-length animated film. Before the show starts, guests are entertained
by an excellent acappella group. Some even say that this singing group
is better than the main show. The storyline of the show is pretty much
the same as the movie, complete with all your favourite characters,
songs, and a spectacular ending made complete by the release of a flock
of white doves. There are a few scenes in the show that weren't from
the movie, but they fit in so well that they could have been. With the
beautiful costumes, sets and wonderful special effects, this 20-minute
show is as good as they get.
