Behind the scenes of Beauty and the Beast musical on Disney Cruise Line

The Disney Cruise Line is one of the premiere cruising companies to sail the seas. A large part of that reputation is the ability to enjoy Disney’s world class entertainment productions. The cruise line has made a point of building theaters capable of hosting stage shows that are every bit as big a production as what you’d find on Broadway, which adds an extra technical challenge when your theater floats.

This new “Beauty and the Beast” version will adapt the new live-action movie, which itself is an adaption of the original animated classic, for the stage. The production and cast will retell the classic story in a whole new way.

Here’s our first look behind the scenes as they put the show into production and rehearsals:

Pretty sure I saw puppets being used for Lumiere, Plumette, wolves, and Phillipe at least. They’re also making heavy use of digital projection to extend the set pieces. If done right, that can add a lot to a production.

Right now this production will only be available to guests aboard the Disney Dream. This tale as old as time is expected to debut in November.
