Disney's Beauty and the Beast

Featuring an enchanting score by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, and book by Linda Woolverton, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is a mesmerizing experience that embodies the magic of the theatre.

Join us as the “tale as old as time” returns to the city where it started in a brand-new production, produced exclusively by the Theatre Under The Stars creative team.

April 16 – 28, 2019 


Based on E.L. Doctorow’s powerful book about immigrants and the fight for the American soul in the early twentieth century, Ragtime is a magnificent and deeply moving musical. Featuring a Tony Award® winning score and book, Ragtime is set at a time when worlds and cultures are colliding on issues of race, class, gender equality, and politics.

The plot of Ragtime shows the intersection of three groups of people in the United States - African-Americans, upper-class suburbanites, and Eastern European immigrants, and the struggles each face as their worlds collide during this time.

This ensemble musical takes a look at the past and, in it, we see our present, and the opportunities for our future.
