Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
You can help by donating to our production! Production costs are over $30,000; this show is totally self-sustaining with no direct financial support from the church—so we need your donations! Here’s how you can help—please donate $200 or more to become a member of the “Royal Order of the Enchanted Castle!” Donations under $200 will become “Enchanted Castle Charmers!” Won’t you please help?
Donors will be recognized in the program (if donations are received on or before February 12) as well as during the pre-show and intermission slides in the Ministry Center and during pre-show announcements.
All donations should be made to “First United Methodist Church-Coppell” and note that these are for “Beauty and the Beast Donations.” We’ll take care of the rest! Church members who are registered, you can donate online through your membership gateway; others can give by check or cash by mailing to First United Methodist Church of Coppell, 420 S. Heartz Rd., Coppell, TX, 75019 or come by the office at that address Monday through Thursday 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. or Friday 8:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. to make your donation.
This "tale as old as time" is filled with spectacular costuming and sets with—of course—a bit of Disney magic throughout. So we invite you to “Be Our Guest” for this great show! For more information, call First United Methodist Church of Coppell at 972-462-0471.
