"Be Our Guest!" The Academy Award-winning film comes to life in this romantic and beloved take on the classic fairy tale on the Duke Energy Theater stage!!!
Acting Out Studio of Charlotte, North Carolina, directed by Logan Stamey, will present Disney's Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 13 countries. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.

If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
