Dufflebag Theatre's Beauty and the Beast

a part of the Free Young & Fun Series

Hilarious interactive storytelling theatre for all ages.

The “Nearly World-Famous” DuffleBag Theatre brings the classic fairy-tale of Beauty and the Beast to life in their signature fun-filled and humorous fashion: using audience members as the stars! 

When an egotistical, arrogant prince unkindly turns an old woman from his castle door on a dark and stormy night, he is taught a lesson in caring more about others than for himself. For his rudeness, the old woman magically transforms him into a "Horrible, Nasty Beast!" who is forced to hide in his castle, away from humanity, and care for an enchanted rose. The Beast only begins to change his ways when he encounters Beauty, a daring young girl from the nearby village, who stumbles across his castle while searching for her missing father in the forest. Beauty finds her father has been imprisoned by the Beast for harming his enchanted rose. Determined to gain his freedom, Beauty suggests that she take his place instead. Impressed by Beauty's noble self-sacrifice, the Beast frees her father-- but instead of keeping Beauty as a prisoner, he invites her to be his guest. During her stay, she realizes that the Beast is not as bad as he appears, and she brings his good qualities to the forefront. When her father returns to free her with the help of Gaston de la Fromage, the notorious "beast-vanquisher," everyone discovers that there might be some beauty in the Beast after all!

Since 1992, audiences across Canada, the United States, and internationally in countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, and Vietnam, children and adults alike have been enchanted and enthralled by the wit, clever stagecraft, energetic performances, and audience interaction of a DuffleBag Theatre performance. When the audience is the star, everyone’s dream of living a fairy tale can come true with the “Nearly World-Famous” DuffleBag Theatre!
