An enchantress, disguised as an old beggar, offers a rose to a young prince, in exchange for shelter in his castle from the cold, but the prince refuses. For his arrogance, the enchantress transforms him into a beast and places a spell on the castle. She gives him a magic mirror that enables him to view faraway events, along with the enchanted rose that she had offered. To break the spell, the prince must learn that ‘Beauty is NOT skin deep’ – he must learn to love another and earn her love in return before the rose's last petal falls on his 21st birthday. If he fails, he will remain a beast forever.

The beautiful Belle greets the people every morning in the French village where she lives ("BONJOUR") including Jean-Martin who she doesn't really like, though he thinks she will agree to become his bride. Her Papa learns that a boat he thought lost has at last returned and he may in fact be wealthy one more; he sets off to Paris to find out saying he'll bring a present home for his daughter. But Belle tells him all she wants is "a rose that you have picked for me".

Returning from Paris, Papa seeks shelter from a storm in a mysterious castle. The next morning he sees a beautiful rosebush, and remembering Belle's request picks just one single rose for her. But with an almighty roar, the Beast appears accusing Papa of stealing. Papa explains that he was picking the rose as a present for his daughter Belle. On hearing this, Beast agrees to free Papa on condition he returns with his daughter.

When Belle hears her father's story she readily agrees to replace him at the chateau as a prisoner of the Beast. ("PAPA AND BELLE").

Belle stays as a "guest" at the Beast's chateau and as the invisible servants ("INVISIBLE SERVANTS") sing about the passing of time, Belle and the Beast slowly but surely start to become friends.

But when Belle learns that her father is gravely ill, the Beast reluctantly lets her return to the village to visit her ailing father. In reality her father was ill from a broken heart, and reunited with Belle he is better again.

With time running out for the Beast to earn the love of another, Jean-Martin sets off to the chateau to battle the "fearsome monster".

Will the Beast learn not to judge a book by its cover?

Will Belle learn that Beauty is not just skin deep?

And will Jean-Martin win his battle with the Beast?
