Disney’s Beauty and the Beast features the animated film’s score with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman, with additional songs with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice.  The book is written by Linda Woolverton.

It is a classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress.  If the Beast learns to love and to be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self.  Time is running out and if he does not learn soon, he and his castle will be doomed for all eternity.
