Here is the timeless story of how a young maiden named Beauty bravely lives in the castle of a frightening Beast, and how her gradual love for him breaks the curse he is under, turning him back into a prince. All the favorite characters are here, including a likable prince, a kind, fair person even when he is a furry beast; Beauty, a beautiful young maiden who lives up to her name in spirit and self-reliance; and a wizard who wonders why the audience doesn't delight in his evilness. Other characters include Beauty's blustery and somewhat silly father, Otto Von Gooseberry; and Beauty's sisters, Patience and Charity, who have neither. Even more humor is added by two assistants, Fenwick and Bozmo, who spend a good portion of the play under a curse as a snake and skunk. This play has minimal production needs and maximum entertainment value. Performance time about 75 minutes.
