Tale as old as time. Song as old as rhyme. Beauty and the Beast comes to life, on stage, this week!

Quad City Music Guild presents The Broadway Musical, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jun 14-16 and 20-23 at Prospect Park Auditorium (1584 34th Avenue Moline).

Take part in the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic, an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 13 countries. The all-ages story tells of Belle, a young, forward thinking 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. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Menken and Ashman. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $11 for children. Call (309) 762-6610 for reservations now! Visit the QCMG website at https://qcmusicguild.com/upcoming-shows/#beauty for more information.

Shuttles from South Park Mall begin an hour before the show and pick up in the parking lot between JC Penny’s and Denny’s (closer to Denny’s). For your convenience, there will be a bus greeter to assist patrons. Doors to the theatre open a half hour before each show.
