The award-winning animated film and stage play Disney’s Beauty & the Beast JR. comes to life in this romantic and beloved take on the classic fairytale. The play is performed at Aspen Academy on Thursday, November 21 at 6 p.m. and Friday, November 22 at 2 p.m. Entry is a suggested $5 at the door.
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 to 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.
Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.
It features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Menken and Tim Rice.
The show runs one hour. Aspen Academy is at 5859 S. University Blvd., Greenwood Village, 303-346-3500.
