TRUE AS IT CAN BE, the tale as old as time is set to come to life as Beauty and the Beast, the Musical, arrives at Sunway Lagoon this December to offer the ideal end-of-year family experience.
This is the fifth musical production to be brought to the Amphitheatre located within the multiple award-winning attraction, and is the first time a show will feature live musicians under the direction of much celebrated musical director and conductor, David Laugharne, who has been credited in many West End productions.
As Sunway Lagoon celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, Beauty and the Beast is a superb way to end 2012 on a high note, and Adron Leow, Assistant General Manager of Sunway Lagoon, speaks on behalf of the company when he says, “We are proud that we can continually provide guests with memorable experiences. Beauty and the Beast is going to be one of the most unique musicals at Sunway Lagoon to date.”

Having live musicians under the direction of David Laugharne, one of the best musical directors that West End has to offer, is unprecedented and very exciting,” said Chris.
