Act I

(A teenage boy comes on stage)

Narrator- Long ago in Paris, 1933 lived a 15 year old boy named Oliver Warbucks Jr. who was the son of a multi-billionaire named Oliver Warbucks Sr. He lived in a fancy mansion with his servants while his father was away on business. Though he had everything his heart desired Oliver was spoiled, selfish, and unkind.

(A woman in a black cloak comes on stage carrying a rose)

Narrator- But then, one winter's night an old homeless came to the mansion and offered him a single rose in exchange for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance Oliver sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal…

(The woman takes off her cloak to reveal a beautiful floating woman with long blonde hair wearing a long white silk dress, cape, and matching bandana)

Narrator- A beautiful enchantress. Oliver tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. As punishment she transformed him…

(Lightning and smoke effects)

(Oliver is transformed into a beast)

Narrator- Into a hideous beast, and placed a powerful spell on the mansion and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form Oliver concealed himself inside his mansion with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world.

(The spotlight shines on a rose in a glass capsule)

Narrator- The rose she had offered was truly and enchanted rose which would bloom until his sixteenth year. If he could learn to love another and earn their love in return by the time the last petal fell then the spell would be broken, if not he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the time passed he fell into despair and lost all hope for who could ever learn to love a beast?

(A sixteen year old is sitting on her cot in an orphanage looking out the window while reading a book)

(A girl moans)

Molly- Annie, Annie!

(All the orphans wake up)

(She walks over to her cot)

Annie- What's wrong Molly?

Molly- I had a bad dream.

Pepper- Every night, we have to go through this every night.

Annie- Pepper, please be quiet.

Pepper- Why should I listen to you?

Annie- Because I'm the oldest girl in the orphanage, so you have to do what I say.

Pepper- Whatever.

Molly- I want to go home.

Duffy- Molly, we're orphans, this is home.

Annie- Duffy! There, there Molly, everything will be all right.

Molly- Will you read me the note Annie?

Pepper- Here we go again.

Annie- Of course I'll read it to you, I do enjoy reading.

Pepper- Yeah, you practically read twenty-four seven.

Annie- Well I love books, they take me to those wonderful places where there's mystery and adventure and romance and happy endings. Let's begin.

(She takes out the note)

Annie- Please take good care of our little darling. Her name is Annie. We have left half of a silver locket around her neck and kept the other half so that when we come back for her you will know that she's our baby.

Molly- Do you think they're still out there Annie?

Annie- I think I so, and someday I know they'll come for me, I just know it, now, time for you to get some sleep, good night.

Molly- Good night.

(She tucks her in)

(Song begins)

Maybe

Annie

Maybe far away.

Or maybe real nearby.

He may be pouring her coffee.

She may be straitening this tie!

Maybe in a house.

All hidden by a hill.

She's sitting playing piano.

He's sitting paying a bill! Betcha they're young.

Betcha they're smart.

Bet they collect things.

Like ashtrays, and art!

Betcha they're good - (Why shouldn't they be?)

Their one mistake was giving up me! So maybe now it's time.

And maybe when I wake they'll be there calling me "Baby"...

Maybe. Betcha he reads.

Betcha she sews.

Maybe she's made me.

A closet of clothes!

Maybe they're strict.

As straight as a line...

Don't really care.

As long as they're mine! So maybe now this prayer's the last one of it's kind...

Won't you please come get your "Baby"

Maybe.

(Song Ends)

(Annie starts walking away)

July- Where are you going?

Annie- I'm running away.

July- Again?

Annie- Yes, I'm sorry to leave, but I have to find my parents, it's my dream.

July- But what if Hannigan catches you again?

Annie- She won't.

(She walks away)

(Orphans wake up)

(Song Begins)

Odd Annie

Orphans

Look there she goes that girl is strange no question.

Dazed and distracted can't you tell?

With a dreamy far off look and her nose stuck in a book.

Orphans

She really is a funny girl!

A beauty, but a funny girl!

She really is a funny girl that Annie!

(Song Ends)

(Annie tries to leave the orphanage, but it caught by a drunken overweight mannish-looking woman)

Miss Hannigan- Annie, trying to run away again.

Annie- All right, let's get it over with.

Miss Hannigan- Get what over with?

Annie- Aren't you going to hit me?

Miss Hannigan- Would I ever hit you?

Annie- No, but you'd frighten me and that's worse.

Miss Hannigan- I know.

Annie- Miss Hannigan, you need to stop treating me like a child, I am sixteen after all.

Miss Hannigan- Be quiet orphan.

Annie- I'm not an orphan. My parents left a note saying they would be back someday.

Miss Hannigan- That was 1917, this is 1933, you're an orphan, now, follow me back upstairs!

(They two go back upstairs)

(The orphans wake up)

Miss Hannigan- Wake up! I just caught Annie trying to run away.

Tessie- Again?

Miss Hannigan- Yes again, now, in honor of her return party I want all have you to clean this place until it shines like the Effel Tower, and Annie, get downstairs to the bathroom and scrub the toilets!

(Hands her a toothbrush)

Miss Hannigan- Now!

(Miss Hannigan and Annie leave)

(Miss Hannigan and Annie come back)

Annie- I've finished cleaning those toilets Miss Hannigan.

Miss Hannigan- Yeah, yeah, now, gather the sheets, the laundry man's here.

(A man pushing a laundry basket walks into the room as the orphans gather the sheets)

Mr. Bundles- Hello kids.

Orphans- Hello Mr. Bundles.

Miss Hannigan- So, what have you been doing lately?

Mr. Bundles- Oh nothing much, just a lot of work is all.

Miss Hannigan- Have you got a woman yet?

(Annie sneaks into the laundry basket as the orphans over her up with blankets while Miss Hannigan is flirting with Mr. Bundles)

Mr. Bundles- No, no, no women yet, listen, I have to go, goodbye everybody.

Orphans- Bye Mr. Bundles.

Miss Hannigan- All right, let's get back to work, where's Annie? Annie!

Duffy- Miss Hannigan, Annie's not here.

Miss Hannigan- What, where is she?

July- She snuck into the laundry and Mr. Bundles took her away.

Miss Hannigan- What, I could lose my license!

(She runs out of the room as the orphans start giggling)

(Annie is outside in the snowy streets)

(A stray dog comes up to her)

Annie- Why hello there, are you lost?

(She checks his neck)

Annie- You don't have a collar, are you a stray? You poor thing. I know how you feel, I've never had a family either. Don't worry, everything will be all right, you'll see.

(Song Begins)

Tomorrow

Annie

The sun will come out tomorrow.

Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be sun! Just thinking about tomorrow clears away the cobwebs, and the sorrow.

Til there's none! When I'm stuck with a day that's gray, and lonely, I just stick out my chin and grin, and say.

Oh! The sun will come out tomorrow.

So you gotta hang on.

'Til tomorrow come what may.

Tomorrow!

Tomorrow!

I love you Tomorrow!

You're always a day a way!

(Song Ends)

(Dog catcher comes)

Dog Catcher- Caught you! You're going to the pound.

Annie- No wait, you can't.

Dog Catcher- Why not.

Annie- Because he's my dog.

Dog Catcher- You're dog?

Annie- Yes.

Dog Catcher- What's his name?

Annie- His name?

Dog Catcher- Yeah.

Annie- His name, is, Sandy, yeah, Sandy because he's a nice sandy color.

Dog Catcher- All right, then call him.

Annie- Call him?

Dog Catcher- Yeah.

Annie- All right? Come here Sandy, come on Sandy, come here!

(He stays)

Annie- Come here Sandy, come here!

(He comes to here)

Dog Catcher- Ok, ok, your dog is safe, just keep him on a leash from now on.

Annie- Of course, thank you.

(He leaves)

(Miss Hannigan comes)

Miss Hannigan- Annie, Annie!

Annie- Oh my gosh, that's Miss Hannigan, we better get out of here, quick.

(The two run away)

(She sees them)

Miss Hannigan- Hey you little brat get back here!

(She runs after them)

(Annie runs towards a door)

Annie- In here!

(Annie and Sandy walk into a dusty old mansion)

Miss Hannigan- All right Annie, I know you're in there!

(She walks in)

(Annie hides)

(A candelabra and a clock are standing still)

Cogsworth- Not a word Lumière, not a single word.

Miss Hannigan- What was that?

(Looks around, but then walks away)

Cogsworth- That was a close one, we have to be more careful.

Lumière- Oh come on Cogsworth,what's the worst thing that could happen?

Cogsworth- Oh I don't know, that woman or that girl could expose us all!

Lumière- Wait, what did you say?

Cogsworth- I said, that woman or that- (realizes) girl! Yes, she's a girl, we have a girl!

Lumière- Yes, she's the one, the one to break the spell!

(A teapot is in the kitchen with a teacup)

Chip- Mama, did you hear? There's a girl in the mansion!

Mrs. Potts- Now Chip, I won't have you making up silly stories.

Chip- But there is one, I saw her.

Mrs. Potts- Now Chip, enough of that.

(A feather duster comes in)

Babette- Mrs. Potts, Mrs. Potts!

Mrs. Potts- What is it Babette?

Babette- There's a girl in the mansion!

Chip- See I told you.

(Miss Hannigan is searching for Annie)

Miss Hannigan- All right Annie, come on out here!

Annie- We can't let her find us.

Beast- Who's there?

Annie- My name's Annie, who are you?

Beast- It doesn't matter, but I think I can help you.

Annie- How?

Beast- I'll keep that woman from finding you if you do something for me.

Annie- Anything, just tell me what it is.

Beast- You must stay here in this mansion, but keep in mind, you wouldn't be able to leave at all.

Annie- Can my dog stay here as well?

Beast- I guess so.

(Thinks for a moment)

Annie- All right, I'll do it.

Miss Hannigan- Annie, Annie!

(The Beast jumps out in front of her as Miss Hannigan gets a scared look on her face)

Beast- She's not going anywhere, got that?

(She nods)

Beast- Good, now leave!

(She runs away)

Beast- There, now you must honor our deal and stay in the mansion, forever!

Annie- Come into the light.

(He comes into the light as Annie gets a scared look on her face)

Beast- Follow me!

(The Beast drags her up to her room)

Beast- This will be your room, if you need anything my servants will attend to you, and one other thing, you will join me for dinner, that is not a request!

(He leaves)

(Song Begins)

Home

Annie

Yes I made the choice.

In this mansion I will stay.

But I don't deserve to lose my freedom in this way.

You monster.

If you think that what you've done is right, well then, you're a fool.

Think again.

Is this home?

Is this where I must learn to be happy?

Never dreamed that a home could be dark and cold.

I was told everyday in my childhood even when we grow old.

Home should be where the heart is.

Never were words so true.

My heart's far.

Far away.

Home is too.

What I'd give, to return, to the life that I knew lately.

But I know, that I can't, solve my problems going back.

Is this home?

Am I here for a day or forever?

Shut away from the world until who knows when.

Oh but then.

As my life has been altered once it can change again.

Build higher walls around me.

Change every lock and key.

Nothing lasts.

Nothing holds all of me.

My heart's far, far away.

Home and free.

(Song Ends)

Mrs. Potts- Here you go darling.

Annie- Who is it?

Mrs. Potts- Mrs. Potts dear I thought you might like some tea.

Annie- Come in.

(She walks in)

Mrs. Potts- Here you go darling.

Annie- But you're-

Mrs. Potts- Mrs. Potts dear, very pleased to make your acquaintance.

(Bumps into her wardrobe)

Madame de la Grande Bouche- Careful darling.

Annie- Who are you?

Madame de la Grande Bouche- Madame de la Grande Bouche, perhaps you've heard of me.

Annie- I'm sorry.

Madame de la Grande Bouche- You see, they've forgotten all about me. I used to be and I quote the toast of Europe, the brightest star ever to grace the stage, but fall under one little spell-

Mrs. Potts- Hush!

Annie- Wait, this is impossible.

Madame de la Grande Bouche- I know it is, but here we are, now, how about we get you a dress for dinner?

Annie- No thank you, I'm not going to dinner.

Madame de la Grande Bouche- Oh but you must, the master will be so disappointed.

Annie- I'm sorry, but I just can't eat.

(Back the orphanage Miss Hannigan is in her office while the girls are cleaning)

Miss Hannigan- All right you brats, off to bed!

Molly- But what about dinner?

Miss Hannigan- You lost your dinner tonight when you let Annie run away, no all of you scram.

(Pepper steps on her foot as the girls go upstairs)

Miss Hannigan- This is the worst job in the world, there's nothing I hate more than children!

(Song Begins)

Little Girls

Miss Hannigan

Little girls

Little girls

Everywhere I turn I can see them.

Little girls

Little girlsNight and day I eat, sleep, and breathe them.

I'm an ordinary woman.

With feelings.

I'd like a man to nibble on my ear.

But I'll admit no man has bit.

So how come I'm the mother of the year? Little cheeks.

Little teeth.

Everything around me is little.

If I wring little necks surely I will get an women are dripping with diamonds.

Some women are dripping with pearls.

Lucky me!

Lucky me!

Look at what I'm dripping with. Little girls.

How I hate, little shoes, little socks and each little bloomer.

I'd have cracked years ago if it weren't for my sense of humor.

Some day I'll step on their freckles.

Some night I'll straighten their curls.

Send a flood.

Send the flu.

Anything that you can do to little girls.

Some day I'll land in the nut house with all the nuts and the squirrels.

There I'll stay until the prohibition of little girls.

(Song Ends)

(Knock on door)

Miss Hannigan- What is it?

(Two people walk in)

Rooster- Hey sis, what's up?

Miss Hannigan- Rooster? Say, aren't you supposed to be in jail?

Rooster- They let me out early.

Lily- Only because of his good behavior.

Miss Hannigan- And who is this?

Rooster- Meet my new woman, Lily St. Regis.

Lily- Named after the motel.

Rooster- So, what's been going on with you Aggie?

Miss Hannigan- It's been more peaceful around this dump ever since I got rid of one of those orphans.

Lily- Was she adopted?

Miss Hannigan- No.

Lily- Then where did she go?

Miss Hannigan- There's no way you'd believe me.

Rooster- Try me.

Miss Hannigan- Fine, Annie ran away, walked into the old Warbucks mansion, and got kidnapped by an overgrown beast.

Rooster- I don't believe you.

Miss Hannigan- I told you, but it's true, I'm telling you.

Rooster- This sounds very interesting, come on Lily, let's check this out for ourselves.

(They walk away)

(In the mansion the table is set for dinner)

Lumière- Is dinner ready Mrs. Potts?

Mrs. Potts- Just about, I have the slightest idea of what she'd like to eat, so I cooked up everything we have in the kitchen.

Lumière- Good, good.

(He notices a windup handle on Cogsworth's back)

Lumière- Cogsworth, what's that?

Cogsworth- What's what?

Lumière- There on your back.

(He turns his head and notices)

Cogsworth- That wasn't there last night when I went to bed!

Mrs. Potts- It's the spell I'm afraid.

Cogsworth- Why is this happening to me?

Mrs. Potts- It's not just you, we're all in this together.

Cogsworth- Why did we get dragged into this spell business? It's not like we threw that poor homeless woman out.

Lumière- No, but are we not responsible for helping him become who he is?

Cogsworth- I suppose so.

Lumière- But don't worry my little Babette, we'll be human again soon.

Babette- Oh you.

(The beast walks in)

Beast- It's time for dinner, where is she?

Cogsworth- Perhaps I should see about her, won't be a minute.

(He goes upstairs)

Lumière- Oliver, have you thought that maybe she might be the one to break the spell?

Beast- Of course I have, I'm no fool.

Lumière- Good, then, you fall in love with her, she falls in love with you, and poof, we'll be human again by midnight.

Mrs. Potts- Lumière it's not that simple, these things take time.

Lumière- But we don't have time, look, the rose has all ready begun to wilt.

(The spotlight shines on the rose)

Mrs. Potts- Now remember, treat her kindly, be kind and gentle, use your manners, eat like a gentleman, and…

Lumière- You must control your temper!

(Cogsworth comes back)

Beast- Well?

Cogsworth- I told her about dinner and, she's not coming.

Beast- What!

(The beast goes upstairs to Annie's room)

Beast- I thought I told you to come to dinner!

Annie- I'm not hungry.

Beast- You better come or I'll-

Lumière- Oliver, this isn't a good time to yell, be kind and gentle with her.

Beast- I'm sorry for shouting Annie, will you come to dinner now?

Lumière- Please.

Beast- Please?

Annie- No.

Beast- Fine, then go ahead and starve! If she doesn't eat with me she doesn't eat all!

(He goes downstairs to his bedroom with the rose)

Beast- Why is she being like this?

(He picks up a mirror)

Beast- Show me the girl!

(He sees Annie's bedroom)

Madame de la Grande Bouche- He's so much better when you get to know him Annie, why don't you give me another chance.

Annie- I don't want to get to know him! I don't want to have anything to do with him!

Beast- It's no use; I'll be like this forever.

(Song Begins)

If I Can't Love Her

Beast

And in my twisted face.

There's not the slightest trace of anything that even hints of kindness.

And from my tortured shape no comfort, no escape.

I see, but deep within is utter blindness.

Hopeless

As my dream dies.

As the time flies.

Love a lost illusion.

Helpless

Unforgiven

Cold and driven.

To this sad conclusion.

No beauty could move me.

No goodness improve me.

No power on earth, if I can't love her.

No passion could reach me.

No lesson could teach me.

How I could have loved her and made her love me too.

If I can't love her, then who?

Long ago I should have seen.

All the things I could have been.

Careless and unthinking, I moved onward.

No pain could be deeper.

No life could be cheaper.

No point anymore, if I can't love her.

No spirit could win me.

No hope left within me.

Hope I could have loved her and that she'd set me free.

But it's not to be if I can't love her.

Let the world be done with me.

(Song Ends)

(Rooster and Lily are watching through the window)

Beast- Who's there?

(Rooster and Lily duck)

(He turns around, but sees no one)

(Rooster and Lily return to the orphanage)

Lily- You were right.

Rooster- There is a beast in the mansion.

Miss Hannigan- See, I told you.

Rooster- You know, that mansion he lived in was pretty fancy.

Lily- You know, you're right, he must be worth millions, even billions.

Rooster- That beast must be living the sweet life. We deserve to live the sweet life, don't you think?

(Song Begins)

(Back at the mansion)

Mrs. Potts- Why won't he be gentle? If he doesn't warm up his heart to her we'll be stuck like this forever.

Lumière- If you ask me she's just being stubborn, after all, he did say please.

Mrs. Potts- I think that's the first time I've ever heard him use that world, you see, she's all ready starting to have a good influence on him.

(Annie walks in)

Mrs. Potts- Good to see you up and about, uh-

Annie- Annie.

Mrs. Potts- Of course. This is Lumière, this is Cogswroth, this is his girlfriend Babette, and this is my son, Chip.

Chip- Hello.

Cogsworth- If there is anything we can do for just ask.

Annie- Well I am a little hungry.

Cogsworth- Except that.

Mrs. Potts- Cogsworth! I will not have her die of hunger because of his temper.

Lumière- She is not a prisoner, she is our guest and what is dinner without a little music.

(Song Begins)

For a servant who's not serving.

He's not whole without a soul to wait upon.

Ah, those good old days when we were useful...

Suddenly those good old days are gone.

For a year we've been rusting.

Needing so much more than dusting.

Needing exercise, a chance to use our skills!

Most days we just lay around the castle.

Flabby, fat and lazy.

You walked in and oops-a-daisy!

ChorusBe our guest!

Be our guest!

Our command is your request.

It's been years since we've had anybody here.

(The beast is sitting alone sadly in his bedroom)

(Lumière comes in)

Lumière- Oh Oliver, what's wrong?

Beast- It's Annie, she thinks I'm a monster.

Lumière- Well, technically speaking you are.

Beast- It's no use, she's so beautiful and, well, look at me.

Lumière- Oh, come on Oliver, there must be a way to get her to like you.

Beast- Like what?

Lumière- Maybe you could get her a gift.

Beast- A gift, that sounds like a good idea, what do you think I should get her?

(Lumière thinks for a moment)

Lumière- Oh, I know.

(He whispers into his ear)

(Annie is sitting in her room)

(The beast knocks)

Beast- May I come in?

Annie- I guess.

(The beast and Lumière come in)

Beast- Listen, I am very sorry for the way I treated you.

Annie- That's ok, I forgive you now.

Beast- And just to make amends I bought you this.

(He opens up a box with a new locket in it)

Annie- What is that?

Beast- It's a brand new locket, I hope you like it.

Annie- I don't, please take it back.

Beast- But it's so much better than that old one you're wearing.

Annie- You don't understand! My parents gave this to me!

Beast- Your parents?

Annie- Yes, when I was just a baby I was left on the doorstep of an orphanage. My parents left me half of this locket and a note saying they would come and get me someday. This locket is the only thing they left me and I wouldn't give it up for all the money in the world!

Beast- Oh my gosh, I had no idea, I'm so sorry.

Annie- That's ok. Every night I pray for my parents to come and get me. It's the only thing I want in life.

Lumière- (Gasps) Oliver!

Beast- I know, I know. Annie, you're my guest and I want you to be happy, so, I promise, I will do, whatever it takes to find your parents.

Annie- You will! Thank you, you don't know how much this means to me.

(Song Begins)

Something There

Annie

There's something sweet and almost kind.

But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined.

And now he's dear.

And so I'm sure.

I wonder why I didn't see it there before.BeastShe glanced this way.

I thought I saw.

And when we touched she didn't shudder at my paw.

No it can't be.

I'll just ignore.

But then she's never looked at me that way before.AnnieNew and a bit alarming.

Who'd have ever thought that this could be?

True that he's no Prince Charming, but there's something in him that I simply didn't see.LumièreWell, who'd have thought?Mrs. PottsWell, bless my soul.CogsworthWell, who'd have known?Mrs. PottsWell, who indeed?LumièreAnd who'd have guessed they'd come together on their own?

Lumière- I hope Oliver can find Annie's parents.

Cogsworth- I hope so too, if he found her parents she would fall in love with him in an instance and then…

Lumière- Cogsworth! Don't be selfish, think about a family finally being reunited again, not the girl breaking the spell.

Mrs. Potts- Human again.

(Song Begins)

Human Again

Lumière

I'll wear gowns!

I'll have hair!

It's my prayer to be human again.

CogsworthWhen I'm human again.

Only human again.

When the world once more making sense.

LumièreReally?

That'd be strange!

CogsworthCan I help it if I'm tense?

In a shack by the sea.

I'll sit back sipping tea.

Let my early retirement commence.

Far from fool made of wax.

I'll get down to brass tacks and relax.

AllWhen I'm human again.

So sweep the dust from the floor!

Let's let some light in the room!I can feel, I can tell.

Someone might break the spell.

Any day now!

Lumière and BabetteShine up the brass on the door!

Alert the dust pail and the broom!

AllIf all goes as planned.

Our time may be at hand.

Any day now!

Mrs. PottsOpen the shutters and let in some air.

We'll resume our long lost joie de vie.

We'll be playing' again.

Holiday' again.

And we're prayin' it's A-S-A-P.

When we cast off this pall.

We'll stand straight, we'll walk tall.

When we're all that we were.

Thanks to him, thanks to her.

Coming closer and closer.

And closer and...

We'll be dancing again!

We'll be twirling again!

We'll be whirling around with such ease.

When we're human again.

Only human again.

We'll go waltzing those old one-two-threes.

We'll be floating again!

We'll be gliding again!

Stepping, striding as fine as you please.

Like a real human does.

I'll be all that I was.

On that glorious morn.

When we're finally reborn.

And we're all of us human again!

(Song Ends)

Beast- I never books could do that.

Annie- Do what?

Beast- Take me away from this place and make me forget who- what I am.

Annie- We have something in common you know.

Beast- What is that?

Annie- Back in the orphanage all the orphans there think I'm, well, odd.

Beast- You?

Annie- So I know how it feels to be different, and I know how lonely that can be.

(Mrs. Potts walks in)

Beast- Excuse me a moment.

(He walks over to her)

Beast- Mrs. Potts, have you found Annie's parenst?

Mrs. Potts- I'm afraid not, I checked all of those questionaires and not one person knew about the note or the locket, they were all fakes.

Annie- What is it? What are you two talking about?

Beast- I'm afraid we haven't found your parents Annie.

(She stays silent)

Beast- Annie, are you ok?

Annie- I just throught finally, I would get to know my parents, after sixteen years, I was silly to dream.

Beast- No you weren't, people need to dream, I ever have a dream.

Annie- What is it?

But something was missing (I never quite knew)

That something was someone-But who? My speeches are greeted.

With thunderous acclaim.

At two universities.

Bearing my name.

Yes, something was missing.

Each time I got through.

That something was someone- But who? Who could that someone be?

How could she make it known?

Who would need me for me?

Need me for me alone?

The world was my oyster-

But where was the pearl?

Who dreamed I could find it

Yes something was missing-

But dreams can come true.

That something is no one, but you. Who would need me for me ?

Need me for me alone.

The world was my oyster.

But where was the pearl ?

Who'd dream I would find it in one girl?

Yes, something was missing.

But dreams do come true.

That something is no one...but you.

Beast- Since your parents haven't showed up, you can stay here, with me, what do you say?

Annie- I'd love to!

Beast- Really?

Beast- You know Annie, Christmas is coming up soon, so I'm going to invite Miss Hannigan and the orphans over here, because you're always talking about how much you miss.

Annie- Really? Thank you. And I would like to ask you something.

Beast- What's that?

Mrs. Potts

Tales as old as time.

True as it can be.

Barely even friends, then somebody bends, unexpectedly.

Just a little change, small to say the least.

Both a little scared, neither one prepared.

Annie and the Beast.

Ever just the same.

Ever a surprise.

Ever as before, ever just asure, as the sun will rise.

Tales as old as time.

Tune as old as song.

Bittersweet and strange, finding you change, learning you were wrong.

Certain as the sun, rising in the east.

Tales as old as time.

Song as old as rhyme.

Annie and the Beast.

Tales as old as time.

Song as old as rhyme.

(She hugs her tightly)

Beast- So you're really Annie's parents?

Lily- Who's that?

Annie- That's my friend Mom, he's the one who helped us find each other.

Rooster- Would you come out here please?

Beast- I don't think so.

Annie- Come on, there's nothing to be afraid.

(He comes out)

Lily- Oh, why Annie, you sure have got an interesting friend here.

Annie- Yeah, yeah I do.

Beast- Wait, can you prove you're Annie's parents?

Rooster- Of course, we left her a note saying we'd come back for her and we have this.

(He pulls out the other half of the locket)

(He puts it on her)

Lily- She's wearing it! She's wearing it!

Beast- So did you hear Annie on the radio.

Lily- We don't have a radio.

Beast- Then you read about it in the paper.

Rooster- What paper?

Beast- Then how did you know Annie was here?

Rooster- Oh, well, when she was a baby we took a job on a pig farm in New Jersey, but no babeis were allowed, so we had to live Annie behind for awhile, but years later we finally earned enough money to come here to France and the nice lady at the orphanage told us that we would find Annie here, and now, we're here to take her home, where she belongs.

Beast- Home?

Rooster- Yes, back to our pig farm in New Jersey.

Annie- Oh Mother, oh Father, I really wish I could go with you, but I can't.

(The beast looks at the rose and then back at Annie)

Beast- Go!

Annie- What?

Beast- Go.

Annie- But I thought-

Beast- You are no longer my prisoner.

Annie- Really.

Beast- Yes, I insisit.

Lily- Oh, thank you.

Beast- And you might not know this, but I offered a reward of $50,000 to try and find her parents and it only seems to fair to give the reward to you.

Lily- Oh, we couldn't possibly-

Beast- I insist.

Rooster- Oh, thank you Sir, we're going to put that money into good use.

Beast- But you won't get it until tomorrow.

Rooster and Lily- Tommorw?

Beast- Yes, I would like Annie to spend Christmas with me, if that's ok?

Lily- All right, we'll come back tommrow morning for Annie and the check.

Beast- All right, goodbye then.

Rooster and Lily- Goodbye.

(They leave)

Annie- This is so wonderful, I don't know how I can thank you, I better go get some sleep, good night.

Beast- Good night.

(She goes upstairs)

Cogsworth- Who were those people?

Beast- Those were Annie's parents. I'm letting her go with them.

Cogsworth- What?

Beast- I have to.

Cogsworth- But why?

Beast- Because, I love her.

Mrs. Potts- After all this time he's finally learned to love.

Lumière- That's it then, that should break the spell!

Mrs. Potts- It's not enough, she has to love him in return.

Lumière- Now it's too late.

(Song Begins)

If I Can't Love Her (reprise)

Beast

No spell has been broken.

No words have been spoken.

No point anymore if she can't love me.

No hope she would do so.

No dream to pursue so.

I looked to myself, despise all the things I see.

For I know that she cannot set me free.

Let the world be done with me.

(Song Ends)

(The next day the orphans and Miss Hannigan are at the mansion for Annie's Christmas party)

Annie- I'm glad you could all be here today.

Molly- Well we're glad to be here Annie. We can't belive you're finally going home with your parents.

Annie- I can't believe it either, though, I don't know. I'm just not sure these are my parents.

(The beast is in his bedroom looking at the rose)

Lumière- Oliver, there's so little time before Annie's parents get here, you have to tell her how you feel.

Beast- I can't, it's too late, the rose barely has any more petals on it.

(Annie walks in)

Annie- Hi.

Beast- Hi.

Annie- I just wanted to say goodbye to you.

Beast- Really?

Annie- Really, I'm going to miss you most of all.

Beast- Annie, are you sure these are your real parents?

Annie- To tell you the truth, no.

Beast- Me neither.

Annie- There's got to be some way we can find out.

Beast- Wait a minute! Why didn't I think of this before?

Annie- What?

(He grabs the mirror)

Beast- This mirror will show you anything you want to see. This can prove weither or not those are your parents.

Annie- I would like to see my parents please.

(The mirror shows two tombstones that say Marget and David Bennette)

Annie- What? Marget and David Bennetee? Who are they?

Beast- They must be you're really parents Annie. The Mudges are imposters!

Annie- But they're in a cemetery, that means-

A Change in Me

Annie

There's been a change in me.

A kind of moving on.

Though what I used to be.

I still depend upon.

For now I realize.

That good can come from bad.

That may not make me wise.

But oh it makes me I, never thought I'd leave behind my childhood dreams, but I don't mind.

For now I love the world I see.

No change of heart a change in in my dark despair.

I slowly understood.

My perfect world out there.

Had disappeared for good.

But in it's place I feel.

A truer life begin.

And it's so good and real.

It must come from I, never thought I'd leave behind my childhood dreams but I don't mind.

I'm where and who I want to be.

No change of heart.

A change in change of heart .

A change in me.

Molly- Is the beast harmless Annie?

Annie- Of course, he'd never hurt anyone, he's my friend.

Miss Hannigan- If I didn't know any better I'd say you have feelings for this monster.

Annie- He's not a monster Miss Hannigan, you are!

Rooster- It's over beast!

Annie- No!

(He pulls out a gun and shoots him)

(Annie kneels down to him)

Annie- Oh Beast, please tell me you're all right.

Song as old as rhyme.

Annie and the Beast.
