A "tale as old as time" is making its way to the Hamptons. This March, you can see Disney
's Beauty and the Beast
live at Southampton Cultural Center
(SCC) as part of Center Stage programming.
Set in France, the iconic love story follows a self-centered prince who encounters a disguised enchantress that casts a spell turning him into a repugnant beast and his castle's servants into household objects. The curse can only be broken by true love, and with time running out, the reclusive prince's only hope is the headstrong Belle. The musical stage adaptation of this Disney classic features all your favorite characters, including Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and Chip, while the timeless Alan Menken
/Howard Ashman score encompasses Be Our Guest, Beauty and the Beast, Gaston, Home, Belle
and others that you'll be humming along to.
"The story is an enchanting escape, but the Menken score, to me, takes the simple tale of girl from a rural village and catapults it to new heights," shared Director Michael Disher
. "Add Ashman's clever lyrics and Beauty and the Beast
becomes a sumptuous experience. And in the production, for the eyes and the ear."
