Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic Disney’s Beauty and the Beast as the White Plains Performing Arts Center (WPPAC) proudly announces the cast for the dazzling holiday production playing December 21, 2018 – January 13, 2019.
A timeless family favorite, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. Now a hideous beast, the prince must learn to love and earn their love in return, before the last petal of an Enchanted Rose falls. Should he fail, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. All of the fanciful characters, such as Cogsworth, Lumiere and Mrs. Potts are also trapped in this spellbound form until the Beast can learn to love and have his love returned.
