"TALE AS OLD AS TIME... SONG AS OLD AS RHYME..."
Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has been produced in 37 countries worldwide. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. 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.
This "tale as old as time" is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities or, even more simply staged, Disney's Beauty and the Beast offers a great opportunity to bring your entire community together for family theatre at its best.

METROTIX SALES END: show time.
Originally conceived on April 21, 1950, as a not-for-profit theatrical organization, the Springfield Municipal Opera Association transformed a 55-acre wheat field into an outdoor amphitheater. On June 17, 1950, thousands of people viewed the opening night performance of our first production, The Merry Widow.
The Muni produces four shows a season, and each summer the Muni audience continues to grow. With support from our sponsors, enthusiastic audiences, and a dedicated and talented corps of volunteers onstage and backstage, the Muni has become one of the largest community theaters in the Midwest. We believe that we are the largest organization of our type in the country that is completely self-supporting, dependent on neither grants, nor tax dollars.
For more than 60 years, we have entertained thousands of people each summer with the best in musical theatre. The Muni is a unique jewel in Springfield's landscape – a beautiful site tucked away at the lake that offers families and friends a venue to spend time together, volunteer, perform, direct and enjoy quality entertainment.
Each year, great thought and consideration are given to developing the season. It is our goal not only to provide you with shows that are familiar but also new productions. We are proud to be part of this community and grateful for your continued support.
When weather is threatening, the Muni consults with the National Weather Service to determine whether or not a show should be canceled for the safety of our patrons, volunteers, and our cast and crew members.
In the event of inclement weather, the Muni reserves the right to hold the start of a performance for a maximum of one hour. The Muni may interrupt a show for a maximum of 30 minutes before cancellation. If a show has played for a total of one hour, rain checks will not be issued. If a show is cancelled and has not played for a total of one hour or to intermission, retain your ticket stub. Your reserved-seat ticket stub may be exchanged for a seat at a subsequent performance. However, the same seat location is not guaranteed. Patrons holding general admission tickets may retain their ticket stub or obtain rain checks before leaving the theater. A performance has not been cancelled until an announcement has been made from the speaker system.
