The Stage Door Theatre Company is proud to present to our Far North community, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast - a show that has won the hearts of audiences worldwide. This family-friendly musical is based on the 1991 Academy Award winning animated film. With a talented cast of local performers and theatre practitioners, we are excited to bring this magical show to Kerikeri. Beauty and the Beast is filled with incredible musical numbers, unforgettable characters, imaginative sets and costumes.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast follows the story of a Young Prince who was transformed into a hideous Beast, due to his arrogance and lack of love for others. Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman, feels that she doesn’t fit into her small provincial town. When attempting to find her missing father, Belle stumbles upon a secluded castle, which is the home of the Beast and his enchanted household. Belle becomes both a prisoner and the hope of the castle. The only way for the spell to be broken, is for the Beast to learn to love another and be loved in return. This must happen before the last petals of the enchanted rose fall, or all of those who live in the castle are doomed to remain in their enchanted form forever. Will Belle and Beast confess their love for one another before it is too late?
