We are so thrilled to bring this Disney favorite, Beauty & the Beast, to the Calvary stage. With beautiful singing, phenomenal choreography, extravagant costumes, and the largest and most dynamic set we have taken on so far, this show is sure to delight. We believe the talents of our close to 100 performers will leave you astounded, but we also hope and believe that the message of this story will leave you changed. To look beneath the surface of hard exteriors of those around you and realize that who you are on the inside is far more important than who you are on the outside. To hope that redemption is possible, even in the midst of the worst of mistakes – that even the heart of the beast can be changed.
– Lauren Wood, Calvary Christian School Beauty and the Beast Director

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
