Set at the Marina Bay Sands MasterCard Theatres in Singapore, the Beauty and the Beast stage features intricately designed stage sets and props that have been delicately conceived, leaving it's eager audiences glued to the spectacle.
The musical also boasts of a highly talented and promising cast including Hilary Maiberger , who has to date played the role of “Belle” in more than 600 shows and Derick Pead as “Beast". 28 year old Maiberger, who has played other major roles such a Cinderella in “Cinderella”, leaves the audience breathless as she whips out familiar classics from the film, sounding much like the original Belle from the Disney film. Another noteworthy performance is by Adam Dietlein, who plays the macho, self-loving maniac that is Gaston. His performance brings a breath of fresh air to the much hated character in the original film, making Gaston almost lovable in this performance. Nostalgic classics like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Be our Guest” were among the crowd favourites, with many singing along to the timeless pieces. The opening night ended with a well deserved standing ovation.
A good one for both the young and old and an undoubtedly theatrical spectacle! Be sure to catch Beauty and the Beast at the Marina Bay Sands MasterCard theatres from now till 3 May 2015!
