THE BEAST (Stage Age: 21-35) The Beasts tortured soul is evident for all to see. He is paying the
ultimate price for a moment of mean-spiritedness, and wishes beyond wishing that he could rectify
his mistake. There is anger and menace in The Beasts appearance and behavior, but increasingly we
see his soft and endearing side as he interacts with Belle. It becomes clear that he is a loving,
feeling, human being trapped within a hideous creatures body. This role requires a very strong
singer, and the actor must have a strong speaking voice and stage presence. Baritone: AHigh F
GASTON (Stage Age: 21-35) Gaston is the absolute antithesis of The Beast. Although he is
physically handsome, he is shallow, completely self-centered, not very bright, and thrives on
attention. However, when his ego is bruised he becomes a very dangerous foe for The Beast, Belle
and Maurice. This role requires a strong singer and actor who moves well. Baritone: AHigh F
LEFOU (Stage Age: 18+) Lefou is Gastons dim-witted, servile sidekick. He goes to extraordinary
lengths and suffers repeated humiliation in his efforts to please his master. The actor must be
comfortable with physical comedy, and the role requires strong comic character acting. Baritone: B
High F Sharp
MAURICE (Stage Age: 40+) Despite being a bit scatter-brained, there is no mistaking Maurices
steadfast love for his daughter Belle. Kindly, gentle, enthusiastic and inventive, he becomes singleminded and determined when Belle faces danger. Maurice and Belle sing the lovely duet No Matter
What. Baritone: B atHigh D at
BABETTE (Stage Age: 20s-40s) Babette is a saucy, enchanted feather-duster, and the object of
Lumiere's affections. This role requires good character acting and she should move well, as she
dances a tango with Lumiere during Be Our Guest. This character speaks with a French accent. Alto:

Babette. This character speaks with a French accent. This role requires strong character acting, and
he should move well. Baritone: AHigh F sharp
