Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, Book by Linda Woolverton

Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, this internationally famous, full-stage production includes all the great songs including “Be Our Guest,” “If I Can't Love Her," “Home” and the title tune “Beauty and the Beast.” The story tells of Belle, a girl in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince 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 into his former self. But time is running out! Our production will be bedecked for the holidays! Think of Belle’s village, the enchanted forest and the Beast’s castle sparkling like ornaments on the Covedale stage. It’s a yuletide treat for the entire family. Experience this "tale as old as time" for Christmas!

 Character Info – ALL ETHNICITES  

Belle    Lead. Female. 18-25

The original fairy tale heroine, kind, gentle, and beautiful. She is a strong, intelligent, spirited and an independent young woman. Belle is the moral conscience of the story, elevated by her thoughts and deeds. The maturity and depth of her character allow her to see the true beauty and spirit within The Beast, and to love him for it. This role requires a very strong singer who portrays innocence with her singing and speaking voice. Vocal range: Soprano (Low A-High F).

Beast  Lead. Male. 22-40

His tortured soul is evident for all to see. He is paying the ultimate price for a moment of mean-spiritedness, and wishes beyond wishing that he could rectify his mistake. There is anger and menace in The Beast’s appearance and behavior, but increasingly we see his soft and endearing side as he interacts with Belle. It becomes clear that he is a loving, feeling, human being trapped within a hideous creature’s body. This role requires a very strong singer, and the actor must have a strong speaking voice and stage presence. Vocal range: Baritone (A–High F).

Mrs. Potts  Lead. Female. 30-65

A warm-hearted, maternal enchanted teapot. She is the narrator of the story and is the motherly figure to Belle. A very strong singer needed for this role as Mrs. Potts sings the title song Beauty and the Beast which is the audience show-stopper song of the show. This character speaks with a British accent. Vocal range: Alto/Mezzo (Low F#-High G). 

Gaston  Lead. Male. 18-40

The absolute antithesis of The Beast. Although he is physically handsome, he is shallow, completely self-centered, not very bright, and thrives on attention. However, when his ego is bruised he becomes a very dangerous foe for The Beast, Belle and Maurice. This role requires a strong singer and character actor who moves well. Vocal range: Baritone (A–High F).

Lumiere  Supporting. Male. 20-50

The French butler who was transformed into a Candelabrum. He is light-hearted, suave, romantic, smooth-talking, and charming. He has a romantic involvement with Babette. This character speaks with a French accent. This role requires strong character acting, and he should move well. Vocal range: Tenor/Baritone (A-High F#).

Cogsworth Supporting. Male. 30-60

A tightly-wound, enchanted mantle clock and the head of the Beast’s household. He is a stuffy English man who loves perfection. This character speaks with a British accent. This role requires strong character acting. Vocal range: Baritone (A-High E).

Babbette  Supporting. Male. 25-35
Madame de la Grande Bouche Supporting. Female. 30-60
Ensemble including:  Three Silly Girls, Mauriece, Lefou, Chip, Monsieur D'arque
(Townspeople/The Enchanted Objects)
