About the Show
Based on the award-winning Disney animated film and stage play, this "tale as old as time" is a classic story of transformation and tolerance featuring Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, 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.
The show includes favorite songs, including "Be Our Guest" and "Beauty and the Beast," along with several new songs and underscoring by Langley's pit orchestra. Thirteen musical numbers, lots of dancing, stunning handmade costumes, and beautiful scenery designed and painted by our Advanced Art elective students make this a not-to-be-missed production.
To help our student actors hone their roles, Langley brought in a professional stage combat coach to instruct them on how to portray fighting on stage. Students also learned to sing in vocal harmonies, explored how to move like inanimate objects to portray the servants in the castle, and perfected several new dance moves, including the waltz.
More than 60 cast, crew, and pit members in grades 6-8 are involved in the spring musical. As with all of Langley's Middle School productions, this show is student-run, with students working on props, makeup, or hair, assisting with sound and lighting, and handling backstage operations.
Langley's production of "Beauty and the Beast Jr." runs less than two hours and includes a short intermission. Please note that, as in the animated film, this production contains some violence that may not be appropriate for all ages.
