Beauty and the Beast and the ???

This original Orpheus musical was created as a touring production for children. Composed by Berthold Carrière with lyrics by John Marier, this show featured much audience participation. Beauty and her forgetful father, who has had to sell his belongings meet a shipless group of pirates who are wandering through the forest under the command of a totally, inept captain who cannot even snap his fingers. His faithful band include a new recruit and a pirate who resembles Harpo Marx. The Beast feels sorry for himself and tries to get some sympathy from the audience. The pirates not only plan to share their treasure with Beauty’s father but decide to rescue Beauty. But all turns out well in the final scene at the palace. The Beast, now a handsome Prince, invites the pirates to live at the palace, where there will be “no ship but friendship”.
