Disney's Beauty and the Beast, presented by NETworks, will enjoy its first major Los Angeles engagement in 15 years when it comes to Hollywood's Pantages Theatre for a limited 3 week engagement, March 9 - 26, 2011.

Beauty and the Beast
is the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to 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.

Directed by Rob Roth with choreography by Matt West, the cast features Liz Shivener as Belle, Justin Glaser as The Beast, Nathaniel Hackmann as Gaston, Merritt David Janes as Lumiere, Keith Kirkwood as Cogsworth, Sabina Petra as Mrs. Potts, Christopher Spencer as Maurice, Erin Coors as Babette, Michael Fatica as Lefou, Jen Bechter as Madame de la Grande Bouche, and Sheffield Hocker Diaz and Dakota Ruiz alternating in the role of Chip.
