‘Beauty and the Beast’ to be performed in Mandarin at Shanghai Disney

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” Broadway musical will be performed in Mandarin at the Shanghai Disney Resort in 2018.

The current musical being performed at the 1,200-seat Walt Disney Grand Theater stage is “The Lion King” and that production will end Oct. 8, 2017, according to Shanghai Disney Resort.

The new show is recruiting China’s music theatre stars as well as up and coming talent from across China. These auditions exemplify the resort’s strong commitment to showcase China’s top performers, and its dedication to developing local music theatre talent.
