Beauty and the Beast
FORT ATKINSON -- The Fireside is among the first theaters in the country to be granted production rights to Disney's Beauty and the Beast.
With music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard and Ashman and Tim Rice, and book by Linda Woolverton, Disney has taken this love story and sprinkled it with magic. The result is an endearing musical milestone.
Now it comes to life on the Fireside stage beginning Thursday, May 19, in an all-new production featuring dancing, humor, and songs.
The Fireside is located on Business Hwy. 26 on the south side of Fort Atkinson and includes several gift shops.
Beauty and the Beast will be performed nine times weekly Wednesday through Sunday through Aug. 14. Dining is required for all performances. A children's menu substitution is available for most performances if requested in advance.
For tickets or additional information, call 1-800-477-9505; write to the Fireside at P.O. Box 7, Fort Atkinson, WI 53538; or check out the Web site at www.firesidetheatre.com
