Enchanting story of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ opens May 11 at Fort Myers Theatre


Beauty and the Beast comes to Fort Myers Theatre opening May 11.

Based on the smash hit 1991 Disney animated feature and dating back to a late 18th-century classic French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who feels out of place in her provincial French village. When her father is imprisoned in a mysterious castle, Belle’s attempt to rescue him leads to her capture by the Beast, a grisly and fearsome monster trapped in his gruesome form by an enchantress a long time ago. The only way for the Beast to become human once again is if he learns to love and be loved in return. But there is a time limit on this possibility. Once a magical rose loses all of its petals, all hope will be lost and he will stay a Beast forever. The Beast’s enchanted household–populated by such beloved characters as Mrs. Potts, Lumiere, Cogsworth and Chip–watch anxiously as Belle and the Beast grow to understand and befriend one another. Their feelings grow ever deeper as the clock ticks and petals continue to fall off the enchanted rose. Will they confess their love for one another before it is too late?

Noah Lynch is featured in the role of the Beast, with Christina Thurmond starring as Belle.
