By on November 28, 2018


Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a musical story of love, adventure, and redemption. The book was written by Linda Woolverton with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. Based on the award-winning 1991 animated film by Walt Disney Animation Studios and the original French fairytale by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, this story reminds us that true beauty lies within.

A young and selfish prince, obsessed with beauty, is cursed by an enchantress until he can learn its true meaning. In a small French village, the beautiful but strange Belle dreams of adventures like the ones she’s always reading about in books. When Belle discovers that her father has been imprisoned by a beast in an enchanted castle, she courageously trades herself for her father’s freedom. But perhaps Belle’s dreams are about to come true in a way she never expected. Can true love break the curse?

“Beauty and the Beast” will we staged from Dec. 6 to 22, at EPAC’s Sharadin Bigler Theatre, 320 Cocalico St. Ephrata. Tickets can be purchased online at ephrataperformingartscenter.com, or by calling 717-733-7966 x1.
