of Comedy & Drama -- Easy to Stage
Shoultes Elementary School, Marysville, WA - Halo Academy, MD
Though the Prince was rich and fortunate, he cared little for his people. For his cruelty a spell is cast. Until he is loved by a good and fair lady, he will remain a beast. With lots of fun, comedy and drama, this children's script is fast paced, exciting, and filled with easy creative staging to showcase your talented students.
"I love the adaptation you did of the story by Charles Perrault. Beauty and the Beast is beautiful and you did an amazing job with it."
Joice Riedel, Ontario Local Schools, OH
Young Kids Love to Play The Fun Characters
Simple, witty dialogue keeps the play moving quickly from Village to Castle. All roles have names and personalities so that every child is a significant part of the production. The soundtrack (background sound effects) CD adds a professional touch.
"BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is perfect for non-readers and early readers and is a great option for performers of all experience levels!"
Southern Repertory Theatre, 2019 Summer Camps, New Orleans
Just for Kids: Simple dialogue and vocabulary are appropriate for children and young performers ages 6 - 14.
A Flexible Cast of 29 Students: Easily adapted for a smaller or larger cast. Every role has at least three spoken lines.
Beauty can be played by up to 4 girls to ensure that no one child is the "star". Multiple roles are also suggested for the roles of Beast and Papa.
About 40-45 minutes long: This children's play is long enough to be a substantial project and short enough to accommodate your teaching schedule.
