BE OUR GUEST in this magical production of the original Broadway version of this “tale as old as time.”

Director Carol Hooper, musical director Jim Collado, and a cast of more than 50 islanders tell the magical story of a selfish prince who is transformed into an unsightly creature and his servants turned into household objects. The Beast must earn the love of a beautiful young woman before it is too late for him and his castle.

Hooper believes the musical has much to teach and says it is “not just a fluffy princess story.” Each single character, she says, has something we can identify with and think about.
