“Beauty and the Beast” is my favorite Disney movie…the music, the romance, the predominant theme of “beauty is only skin deep”, makes for such a great story! I am not even ashamed to admit that I am anxiously awaiting the new live-action adaptation of the animated classic that premieres in movie theaters this March, (even though I have no young child or grandchild to bring along). Now, if I could only convince my husband that our next cruise should be aboard the Disney Dream next fall, when Disney Cruise Line debuts its brand new musical production of the same name!
Drawing inspiration from the newer film, the stage production uses the scenic motif of a music box to lead the audience through the story. Combining high-definition projections, dynamic scenery and of course, a sizable amount of Disney magic, this new production will create a visual panorama that reaches beyond the stage and into the audience. The new onboard musical will feature songs from the original animated film’s award-winning soundtrack as well as two new songs created for the live-action film. It all sounds absolutely enchanting to me!
“Beauty and the Beast” will debut on the Disney Dream voyage departing Nov. 6, 2017. The ship sails three- and four-night cruises to the Bahamas from Port Canaveral, Fla.
