In Beauty and the Beast JR., the brainy and beautiful girl Belle yearns to escape her provincial life… and her brute of a suitor, Gaston.

Dancing flatware, menacing wolves, and singing furniture fill the stage with thrills in this beloved fairy tale about very different people finding strength in one another and learning how to love.
