“Witnessing a Broadway stage musical is like witnessing no other form of entertainment, and it brings us great joy to offer that experience to guests in Shanghai — first with ‘The Lion King’ and now with this new Mandarin production of ‘Beauty and the Beast’,” said Philippe Gas, general manager of Shanghai Disney Resort.

The show represents the second collaboration between Shanghai Disney Resort and Disney Theatrical Productions, and integrates the classic tale with local language translations, talented local cast members and specially adapted story elements to create a captivating new production that will resonate with audiences of all ages.

Opening to the public beginning on June 15, the show comprises an approximately two-hour program with a 15-minute intermission, and offers a great addition to a visit to the resort, or a perfect visit opportunity all on its own.
