Who could ever learn to love a beast?

 

Belle: [finds the Beast reading in the garden] What are you reading?

Beast: [quickly] Nothing.

Belle: “Guinevere and Lancelot.”

Beast: [correcting her] “King Arthur and the Round Table.”

Belle: Still a romance.

Beast: Mmm. Felt like a change.

Beast: [to Belle, about the enchanted book] Think of the one thing that you’ve always wanted. Now find it in your mind’s eye and feel it in your heart.

 

Belle: [singing] I want adventure in the great wide somewhere, I want it more than I can tell… And for once it might be grand to have someone understand, I want so much more than they’ve got planned!

Belle: [to the Beast, after he’s wounded during the wolf fight] You have to help me. You have to stand.

 

Beast: [roaring in pain as Belle cleans his wounds] OOWW! That hurts.

Belle: If you’d hold still, it wouldn’t hurt as much.

Beast: If you hadn’t run away, none of this would have happened.

Belle: Well, if you hadn’t frightened me, I wouldn’t have run away!

Beast: Well, you shouldn’t have been in the West Wing!

Belle: Well, you should learn to control your temper!

Once upon a time, in the hidden heart of France, a handsome young prince lived in a beautiful castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was selfish and unkind. He taxed the village to fill his castle with the most beautiful objects, and his parties with the most beautiful people. Then one night, an unexpected intruder arrived at the castle, seeking shelter from the bitter storm. As a gift, she offered the prince a single rose. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince turned the woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. When he dismissed her again, the old woman’s outward appearance melted away… to reveal a most beautiful enchantress. The prince begged her for forgiveness. But it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. As punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast, and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. As days bled into years, the prince and his servants were forgotten by the world, for the enchantress had erased all memory of them from the minds of the people they loved. But the rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose. If he could learn to love another and earn their love in return by the time the last petal fall, the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he felt into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?

[BELLE]
Little town, it’s a quiet village
Every day like the one before
Little town, full of little people
Waking up to say

[ENSEMBLE]
Bonjour! Bonjour!
Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour!

[BELLE]
There goes the baker with his tray, like always
The same old bread and rolls to sell
Every morning just the same
Since the morning that we came
To this poor, provincial town

[MONSIEUR JEAN, spoken]
Good Morning, Belle!

[BELLE, spoken]
Good morning, Monsieur Jean
Have you lost something again?

[MONSIEUR JEAN, spoken]
Well, I believe I have
Problem is, I’ve—I can’t remember what
Oh well, I’m sure it’ll come to me
Where are you off to?

[BELLE]
To return this book to Père Robert
It’s about two lovers in fair Verona

[MONSIEUR JEAN, spoken]
Sounds boring

[ENSEMBLE]
Look there she goes, that girl is strange, no question
Dazed and distracted, can’t you tell?
Never part of any crowd
‘Cause her head’s up on some cloud
No denying she’s a funny girl that Belle

[PERE ROBERT, spoken]
Ahh, if it isn’t the only bookworm in town!
So, where did you run off to this week?

[BELLE, spoken]
Two cities in Northern Italy
I didn’t want to come back
Have you got any new places to go?

[PERE ROBERT, spoken]
I’m afraid not…
But you may re-read any of the old ones that you’d like

[BELLE, spoken]
Your library makes our small corner of the world feel big

[PERE ROBERT, spoken]
Bon voyage!

[ENSEMBLE]
Look there she goes, the girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she’s feeling well
With a dreamy, far-off look
And her nose stuck in a book
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle

[BELLE]
Oh, isn’t this amazing?
It’s my favourite part because—you’ll see
Here’s where she meets Prince Charming
But she won’t discover that it’s him ’til Chapter Three!

[ENSEMBLE]
Now it’s no wonder that her name means “Beauty”
Her looks have got no parallel
But behind that fair facade
I’m afraid she’s rather odd
Very diff’rent from the rest of us
She’s nothing like the rest of us
Yes, diff’rent from the rest of us is Belle!
[ENSEMBLE]
Look there she goes
That girl is strange but special
A most peculiar mademoiselle!

It’s a pity and a sin
She doesn’t quite fit in
‘Cause she really is a funny girl
A beauty but a funny girl
She really is a funny girl
That Belle!
