Inland Pacific Ballet presents Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, this stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, including the beloved title song “Be Our Guest” along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.

The classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end, and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. Don’t miss this “tale as old as time!
