Beauty and the Beast

Lyric Theatre, QPAC

For the first time ever, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast The Musical is now playing in Brisbane, enchanting audiences at QPAC's Lyric Theatre until May 19, 2024.

The much-loved, classic tale has been brought to life in a reimagined production, with all the spectacle and grandeur audiences know and love, from the producers of Aladdin, The Lion King, Mary Poppins and Frozen.

Based on Disney's 1991 animated film, the original production of Beauty and the Beast played for more than 13 years on Broadway, remaining to this day one of the top 10 longest running shows in Broadway history.

Brisbane audiences will be enchanted by the nostalgic and spellbinding songs of Alan Menken, Howard Ashman and Tim Rice including Belle, Gaston, Human Again and Be Our Guest.

A delight for all ages, Beauty and the Beast The Musical features spectacular sets, costume designs and state-of-the-art technology fused with the timeless romance of Belle and her Beast; brought to life on stage by a stellar Australian cast, including Brisbane’s Shubshri Kandiah as Belle, Brendan Xavier as Beast and Rohan Browne as Lumiere.

Members of the creative team from the original, ground-breaking Broadway musical have returned to reimagine this beloved tale. Olivier Award nominee Matt West directs and choreographs, leading a team that includes original composer Alan Menken, lyricist Tim Rice, book writer Linda Woolverton, scenic designer Stan Meyer, costume designer Ann Hould-Ward and lighting designer Natasha Katz. The team collectively received five Tony® Award nominations and a win for best costume design, when Disney first debuted Beauty and the Beast on Broadway 28 years ago.
