Well, after doing one of the most famous animated movies of all time, it only seemed fitting i do one of the other most famous. So, as always, i hope everyone enjoys :)
Everyone filed into the theater, excited to watch tonight's show. After all the praise received for The Lion King, the cast decided to move onto Beauty and the Beast. The overture that was playing was what some in the audience recognized as the instrumental version of the song "Beauty and the Beast". Mr. Game and Watch sat in the control booth, hoping people would like this show as much as they liked The Lion King. He smiled, knowing that even now Bowser was backstage getting his cast ready for tonight's show. Yes, he was surprised as everyone else when Bowser revealed the talents he has as a director, but nonetheless he proved himself up to the task.
Backstage, Bowser had gathered the cast, "Okay, places everyone! Remember, just relax, have fun, and know that we're putting on a great show! Wait a minute, where is Peach?"
Everyone looked around, but she was nowhere to be seen. Bowser groaned (though in his voice it sounded more like a roar) and said, "Ugh, not again…"
"Here I am!" Peach rushed backstage, fixing her corset on her costume. Bowser sighed with relief, saying, "Good, places everyone!"
Everyone got ready for their entrances. In the control booth, Mr. Game and Watch got the signal they were ready to start. He announced, "Ladies and gentlemen, the show will start in just a few moments please find your seats."
Everyone quieted down and sat down to watch. All went quiet as the overture faded out. The red curtain raised, and the show began.
-Act I Prologue "Long Ago"-
A series of stained glass windows hung over the stage, showing a series of pictures of a magnificent castle. Piano music started playing as the audience saw the picture show a young handsome prince, while the narrator spoke, "Once upon a time, in a far away land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish and unkind."
One of the stained glass windows then showed an old hag at the front door of the castle, with the prince in the doorway, the image changing to reflect the narrator's words as the narrator continued, "But then, one winter's night, an old beggar came to the castle, and offered to him a single rose in exchange for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed at her hagged appearance, the prince sneered her gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for true beauty lies within. When he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress."
They saw a mighty beautiful enchantress above the prince, who was on his hands and knees begging as the narrator continued, "The prince tried to beg for forgiveness, but it was too late, for she had seen there was no love in his heart. As punishment, she transformed him into a horrible beast, placed a powerful spell on the castle, and all who lived there."
The image changed to show dark clouds looming over the castle, and the prince turned into a beast. All the images then faded, and all was left was the image of the shining pink rose, "Ashamed of his monstrous appearance, the beast concealed himself inside the castle, with a magic mirror his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered to him was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom for ten years. If he could learn to love another, and earn their love in return by the time the last pedal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time."
The image then shifted to the castle, now dark and gloomy and overcast, "Try as he might, however, he found that none would accept him in his horrid appearance. As the years past, he fell into despair, and lost all hope, for who could ever learn to love a beast?"
