The production is based on the Academy Award-winning animation and then originally directed by Robert Jess Roth and produced by Disney Theatrical Productions. Belle sees past appearances and ends the Beast’s curse with blossoming love. The castle inhabitants show their hospitality, entertaining for their very humanity with humor and beautiful music. Theatre Bristol is pleased to present Disney’s Beauty and the Beast as part of its family-friendly 52nd season!

This Gala event is Theatre Bristol’s annual fundraising event. It is critical to underwriting our programming, including bringing classic literature and entertainment to the stage, subsidizing our school shows, supporting camp scholarships, providing training and guidance in our youth programs, and ensuring founder Cathy DeCaterina’s commitment that no child be turned away.

Theatre Bristol is pleased to bring “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” to The Paramount Center for the Arts, with whom they share a long history resulting from the determination of Theatre Bristol founder Cathy DeCaterina, catalyst for restoring the Paramount to its grandeur.

Theatre Bristol’s production of “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials and logo supplied by Music Theatre International – http://www.mti.com. The production is made possible by season sponsors United Company Foundation and the Tennessee Arts Commission, and our Gala hosts.

Founded in 1965, Theatre Bristol is the oldest continually running children’s theatre in northeast Tennessee and is now celebrating its 52nd season. Its performances take place in the ARTspace, a multi-purpose, black box theatre as well as the Paramount Center for the Arts. Theatre Bristol is entirely volunteer run and we invite you to get involved.
