Improvised Fairytales: Beauty and the Beast

This play is an adaptation of the classic story Beauty and the Beast, with a twist. The story begins with the actors entering the stage and realizing there is an audience waiting for them. They decide to tell a familiar story, and eventually settle on Beauty and the Beast. They can't use the Disney characters, so they create their own using French names for the characters and object names for the enchanted objects.

The play tells the story of a spoiled prince who is cursed by a witch to be a furry monster until he learns his lesson. The curse also affects the prince's servants, turning them into enchanted objects. Many years later, the prince, now a beast, finds his change of heart.

Jolie, a reader of adventure books, is being pursued by Grossier, who plans to marry her. The play ends with the prince, now a man again, and Beauty getting married, and Jolie agreeing to give Grossier a chance.

This play is a humorous take on the classic story, with a mix of modern and traditional elements. The audience will be entertained by the cast's creative solutions to their lack of resources, and the unexpected twists and turns throughout the story.
