BE OUR GUEST!: Disney’s "Beauty and the Beast" at BHS

Burlington High School invites you to be our guest this spring as it presents the most heart-warming story ever told, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Performances will take place on March 25, 26, April 1 and 2 at 7:30, and April 3 at 2:00 pm in the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center.

Based on the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast is the story of Belle, a beautiful young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, a handsome young prince who was transformed into a hideous beast by an enchantress. In a race against time, the Beast can only be returned to his former self through the power of his own love, for if he can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end. If not, he and his entire castle will be doomed for all eternity.

Beauty and the Beast is filled with some of the most beloved songs from Disney repertoire, with music and lyrics by Alan Menkin, Tim Rice and the late Howard Ashman. From the Academy Award-winning score, songs include “Beauty and the Beast,” “Be Our Guest” and “Belle” and are joined by new favorites including “Is This Home” and “If I Can’t Love Her.” The production is filled with all the enchantment, wonder and surprise that made it an international sensation!

Make you plans now to share Beauty and the Beast with your family. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online through or at the music department office of Burlington High School. For more information, please call 781-A-FUN-TIC. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and senior citizens.

  1. BHS has a stellar Drama Department!!! There is a ton of effort involved on both the part of the Director and of the performers. The behind-the-scenes hours and energies are extraordinary. My daughter is involved in a musical at her school. She has been practicing countless hours since the beginning of October. Her drama presentation is scheduled for this weekend and next. I'm totally amazed by the amount of hours put into these performances. Hopefully, after viewing her performance, I will appreciate even more the sacrifices that everybody involved had to make to make it all possible.
