We are delighted to announce Enchantment Everywhere's production of The Beast in the Bayou, a re-imagining of the classic story of Beauty and the Beast that invites audiences to think deeply about the importance of the natural world. In a little town in Louisiana, at the edge of the bayou live a loving father and his two daughters, Grace Elizabeth and Beauty Jane. Beauty loves to explore the swamps and forest but after she has an accident there, she refuses to return. When her father travels into the forest and accidentally encounters the Beast, Beauty returns to the bayou to save him and discovers the truth about the Beast. Realizing her true purpose, she bravely protects the creatures that call the bayou home as she stands up to those who want to destroy it.
