|THE YES COMPANY
The voice of an unseen Narrator begins: “Once upon a time, “there lived a young Prince who had everything his heart desired, but was spoiled and selfish. One night, an old Beggar Woman requested shelter in the Prince’s castle in return for a single red rose. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the Prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. The Beggar Woman warned the Prince “not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.” Dismissing her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful Enchantress. The Prince tried to apologize, but it was too late; she had seen that there was no love in his heart. As punishment, she transformed him into a hideous Beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. The Enchantress left him with only a magic mirror to see the outside world and the rose she had offered, which was truly enchanted. The rose would bloom for many years, but if the Prince did not learn to love another and earn another’s love in return before the last rose petal fell, the spell would remain unbroken… And he would remain a Beast forever.
