Music, fantasy and dance explode on stage as two suitors, the handsome-but-egocentric town bully and the prince who was cursed and turned into a horrible beast, follow delightfully different paths to capture the heart of a lovely and bookish damsel. Patrons can get a peek behind-the-scenes of Disney’s beloved version of Beauty and the Beast with a free stage tour on Oct. 25, 6 p.m. in Brenau’s Hosch Theatre in the John S. Burd Center at 429 Academy Street in Gainesville.
Performances run Nov. 8 through 19 with a special preview performance on Monday, Nov. 7, with discounted tickets at just $10. There will be a free opening night reception catered by Luna’s in the lobby following the Nov. 8 performance.
