Upon arrival in Sanford we will enjoy lunch on your own in the area. Following lunch, we’ll head to the Temple Theatre to enjoy a musical production. The Temple is a professional theatre and has become a highly respected centerpiece of culture in the Sandhills. Hundreds of thousands of people have attended Temple shows and the theatre is far and away Lee County’s biggest year-round attraction. Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 13 countries. 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 costumes. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast offers a great opportunity to bring your entire community together for family theatre at its best. Departing for home after the show, arriving back approximately 6:00 PM.
