Based on the classic French fairy tale, the story of Belle, an intelligent young woman scorned by her townspeople for being a bookworm, weary of fighting off the advances of the arrogant Gaston, and dreaming of escape. Her father was a wealthy merchant and Belle and her three sisters lived in a mansion, all of whom were very beautiful, but only the youngest, at fourteen, is named Beauty for being lovely and pure of heart; her sisters, in contrast, are wicked and selfish. When her father gets lost in the woods and captured by the forbidding Beast, a once-handsome prince turned into a monster by a witch, Belle goes off to rescue him. Taken with her, the Beast agrees to release Belle's father if she agrees to stay with him forever. Initially repulsed, Belle soon finds much to appreciate in the Beast's hidden, tender nature. The Beast's servants, a clock, a teapot, and a candlestick see Belle as their salvation: if the Beast and a woman fall in love before his 21st birthday, he will be free from the curse. All of these mentioned details are not recounted is the spoken version of this tale presented in Fireside Theater version.
