Live stage performances at Walt Disney World have added a wonderful entertainment experience for the adults visiting the parks, which I think the children tolerate for our sake. No matter, I love them for any number of reasons, not the least of which I’m such a fan of Disney animation, but especially those from the 1980’s and 90’s like Beauty and Beast. A short video of one number from the park production is today’s Monday Magic – It’s Almost Like Being There.
The Theatre of the Stars is where Beauty is performed many times daily, but as a shortened half-hour extract based on the film. The score selections are very familiar, and recorded in some numbers since I don’t think Angela Lansbury is hiding back stage. The theatre hold 1,500 people and I’ve never seen anyone turned away for lack of a seat, even on the busiest days.
