Brunswick Little Theatre’s summer presentation is Disney's “Beauty and the Beast.”

Performances began July 26 and run through Aug. 4 at Odell Williamson Auditorium on the campus of Brunswick Community College in Bolivia.

The musical is based on the popular animated 1991 film of the same title, Thom Clemmons, Publicity Director for Brunswick Little Theatre, said.

Alan Mencken and Howard Ashman wrote the score for the film.

According to Clemmons, when Disney decided to adapt the film as a stage musical, Mencken and Tim Rice wrote extra songs.

Beauty and the Beast received many Tony nominations including Best Original Score, and won the UK’s Laurence Olivier Award as Best Musical.

“This family friendly show is a tale of the redemptive power of love and will be enjoyed by young and old alike,” Clemmons said.

“Based on the French fairy tale ‘La Belle et La Bete’, the story centers on a young prince who is transformed into a Beast by an enchantress, and Belle, a young woman he imprisons.

“In order to become human again, the Beast must love Belle, and she must love him in return.”

The play runs at 7:30 p.m. July 26 and 27, August 2 and 3, as well as at 3 p.m. Sundays, July 28 and August 4.
