Based on the original Broadway production, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.

The classic story tells 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 to 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.

Our participants enjoy enormous growth through acting, musical training, speech, creative movement and dance. Students can also choose to participate in off-stage areas of theatrical production including stage crew, tech, set design/scenery, and publicity opportunities.   The Youth Theater is an extension of Auburn Players Community Theatre, one of New York’s oldest and most prestigious community theaters.
