Written by LifeHouse founder and president Wayne R. Scott, this timeless French fairy tale erupts with laughter, romance and suspense. The Beauty will charm audiences as she discovers true love and the soulful secrets deep in the heart of the Beast. Chester Drawers, Mr. Bristle the dancing broom, Madam Buffet the singing stove and a castle of quirky enchanted objects add hilariously comic moments. The touching and powerful conclusion enchants and enthralls guests of all ages.
