Beauty & The Beast

by Ron Nicol published 2007/updated 2020

 

Suitable for All Groups

Price: £6.00

Beauty & The Beast Ron Nicol's revised script is based on Beaumont's 18th century version of the classic tale, but with new features. There is divine intervention in the shapes of a good fairy, Rosella, and a malicious spirit, Maleva. Beauty's sisters Clementina and Nectarina (almost a comedy double act), a feisty maid Gabrielle and Beast's two servants Hermione and Hortense bring the number of female characters to eight. While not being characters as in the Disney version, two props, a looking glass and a ring, play an important part in the plot.

 

Belle, known as Beauty, lives with her father and two sisters. Her father falls on hard times, and on a journey to try to restore his fortunes he plucks a rose from a palace garden as a present for his daughter. The palace belongs to an ugly Beast who demands a life in return for the rose, but Belle saves her fatherís life by consenting to live in the palace. When she eventually falls in love with Beast, he is released from a magic spell and turns into a handsome prince.
