A timeless story of embracing our individual differences, the value and joy of reading, learning to love others and the understanding that true beauty comes from within. Take a trip back to a time long ago in France and realize that some lessons in life transcend time and place and we all have much to learn. Enjoy many familiar and fantastic tunes and “be our guest” on this journey! Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 13 countries. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Tea Time with Mrs. Potts & Friends – Character Meal  12:30-1:30pm (Doors open at 12:15)

Come and dine in our French provincial town and meet the characters from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. They will be coming around to the tables to visit and you will be able to get their autograph in a special coloring/autograph book designed just for this occasion. This will be a special “reservation only” lunch that will include a light meal (sandwiches, fruit and cookies) and all the tea you would like. Mrs. Potts will be sharing a few thoughts with the children as well as a few other surprises. The Parent’s meal cost does not include the extra items that the children receive at the event (including the autograph/coloring book).  You will be required to exit the theater at the completion of the meal as we will need to reset before the doors open for the show at 2:00 pm.  However, you may feel free to browse the French Market in the lobby while you wait.  A gluten-free option is available for the meal but this request must be made at the time of reservation.  Reservations may be made online only  and are in addition to the price of the show ticket and are offered at the following prices:

$15 – Children

$10 – Parent
