The following roles will be cast:
Belle: A vibrant, intelligent girl with beauty, who wants more out of the life than an ordinary existence. She is optimistic, fun-loving, caring, and eager to experience life.
Beast: A Prince transformed into a terrifying beast for his lack of compassion. He is hot-tempered and commanding, but has a warm, loving heart buried far beneath his gruff exterior.
Gaston: The egotistical, ultra-masculine villain determined to marry Belle. He is manipulative yet charming and earnest.
Maurice: Belle’s loving, eccentric father. A child at heart and inventor in his own world.
Cogsworth: A tightly-wound, enchanted mantle clock and the head of the Beast’s household. He is uptight, strict, and punctual but also hard-working, faithful, and thorough.
Mrs. Potts: A warm-hearted, maternal enchanted teapot. She is loyal, caring, and playful.
Lumiere: A suave, debonair enchanted candelabra. He is a loyal and steadfast servant.
Chip: An enchanted teacup and Mrs. Potts’ darling little boy. He is innocent, playful, and bright-eyed. Gender: male
Babette: A saucy, enchanted feather-duster, and the object of Lumiere’s affections. She is the playful, gorgeous, seductive French maid. Gender: female
Madame De La Grande Bouche: A former opera diva-turned-enchanted wardrobe. She has a caring, refined, larger than life personality.
Lefou: Gaston’s bumbling sidekick. He is loyal, energetic, and optimistic, but not quite the brightest guy. Gender: male
Monsieur D’arque: The scheming proprietor of the local insane asylum. He is a dark, sinister villain who aides Gaston in his plot to marry Belle.
Ensemble: Wolves; Enchanted Objects; Townspeople
