Beast
Male-identifying, playing age 25-35. Excellent actor and singer (range A2-F4) and a capable mover. A spoiled Prince transformed into a terrifying beast for his lack of compassion, he is hot-tempered and commanding, but has a warm and loving heart buried far beneath his gruff exterior. This role requires on-stage intimacy (hugging and stage kissing), fight choreography, and the use of facial prosthetics.

Gaston
Male-identifying, playing age 30-40. Excellent actor and singer (range A2-E4) and a capable mover. Gaston is the egotistical, misogynistic villain determined to marry Belle. He is manipulative, but can be charming and earnest when it suits his needs. This role requires fight choreography.

This role requires choreographed flirting and close partner dancing.

Cogsworth
Male-identifying, playing age 30-50. Excellent actor, capable singer (range A2-E4) and a strong mover. Cogsworth is a tightly-wound enchanted mantle clock, and the head of the Beast's household. He is uptight, strict, and punctual, but also hard-working, faithful, and thorough.

Babette
Female-identifying, playing age 25-45. Excellent actor and dancer, and a capable singer (range C4-F5). Ballroom dance experience is a huge plus.
