Upper Darby Summer Stage presents “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Jr!"

Upper Darby Summer Stage caps off its 42nd season with the smash hit “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr.” - August 8, 9, 10, 11




Upper Darby Summer Stage wraps up a tour de force 42nd season with the smash hit “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Jr!” Due to its popularity, all four “Beauty and the Beast” performances have sold out and a fifth show has been added! It’s not too late for audience members to get tickets for the August 8 performance at 10:30 am. Tickets for the August 8 show are limited.

A tale as old as time, “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Jr.” is based on the Academy award-winning motion picture and celebrated Broadway production. The stage performance features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken (“Wicked,” “Aladdin,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Pocahontas”) and the late Howard Ashman including “Human Again” and the ultimate crowd favorite “Be Our Guest!”

Tickets are affordably priced at $8-$12 and members of The Upper Darby Performing Arts Center save $1. Tickets may be purchased at udpac.org or by calling the box office at 610.622.1189. The Upper Darby Performing Arts Center is located at 601 N. Lansdowne Avenue, minutes from the Main Line, Center City and the Blue Route.

Upper Darby Summer Stage will transform into a bucolic French small-town where the studious Belle lives a simplistic life with her father, an eccentric inventor. When Belle’s (Lauren Dietzler of Glenolden) father doesn’t return home from a local fair, she sets out on a search to find him. Belle discovers her father has been held captive in a castle owned by a cursed Beast (Mike Weir of Drexel Hill). Discouraged by what she’s come upon, she trades her freedom for her father’s and finds herself trapped in a magical world with talking and dancing dinnerware. As the town favorite and obnoxious villain, Gaston (Joe Matthews of Havertown) tries to win Belle over, will she be able to help transform the Beast into the prince he once was?

The performance is approximately 60 - 70 minutes with no intermission. Parking is free. The show is recommended for ages four and up with free babysitting in the lobby offered for those who may be too young to sit quietly through the entire show.

A Summer Stage show is a unique experience for all ages. Prior to the children’s performances, young audience members can enjoy pre-show activities and after each show, Upper Darby Summer Stage invites ticket-holders to a meet-and-greet with characters after each show. Autographs and pictures are encouraged!
