It’s a tale as old as time, help your production of Beauty and the Beast dazzle your audiences with Grosh Backdrops!
Our story begins with Prince Adam, a young, coldhearted prince who is throwing a ball in his stunning castle. A beggar arrives at the castle asking Prince Adam for shelter against the chilling, snowy night in exchange for a single, red rose.
When Adam shows the beggar no kindness and refuses her request, she reveals herself to be an enchantress and transforms the prince into a grizzly beast to punish him for his arrogance and inability to see past her appearance. She tells him that to break the curse he must get someone to fall in love with him, beast, and all, before the last petal falls from the rose or be trapped in his beast form forever.
Just beyond the Beast’s castle rests a small village, home to a young woman who’s desperate for adventure. Belle lives at home with her father, spending her days mingling with the townsfolk and reading hundreds of novels until her father goes missing in the woods. Maurice, having been attacked by wolves, attempted to seek shelter at the Beast’s castle and was locked in the dungeon for trespassing.
Without any help from the village, Belle ventures into the woods only to end up at the Beast’s castle where she finds her father in the dungeon. Belle decides to make a deal with the Beast, her father’s life in exchange for her own. The Beast agrees and allows her to take her father’s place, sending Maurice back to their village without so much as a goodbye.
Although Belle is given a guest room in the castle, the two can’t seem to get along at first. But when the Beast saves Belle from a pack of wolves and she helps him back to the castle, they begin to see each other in a new light. Despite time ticking away and an angry mob set on killing the Beast to rescue Belle, the pair find themselves spending more and more time with one another. Realizing there’s something there that wasn’t there before.
