Fall in love with Disney's Beauty and the Beast at EPAC

Music by Alan Menken
Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice
Book by Linda Woolverton
1994 Tony Award Nominee for Best Musical,
Best Book for a Musical, and Best Original Score
Recommended for All Audiences

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?

Join the fun at EPAC and watch the Beast battle the beast within!

Disney's Beauty and the Beast is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

Picnic will run from September 6 - 15, at the Sharadin Bigler Theatre. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling 717-733-7966 x 1.
