Jean Louis (Erik E. Tonner) and Helene (Claire Lloyd) with their children:
Middle row: André (Adam Moore), Emile (Jared Oxborough) and Phillipe (Matt Davis),
and front row: Veronique (Jacleen Olson), Beauty (Claire E. Wellin) and Marie Claire (Carrie Soler)
After their fortune has been lost and their mother dies, the children attempt to keep Jean Louis from heading to Paris to check on business opportunities.
Jean Louis is found along the road by Beast's Man (Jason Kruger) and the Beast (Chris Kuisle).
Beast's Man has a romance with Beauty's Maid (Angelyn Eve Faust) that parallels the main love story.
After getting to know the Beast, with help from the Witch (Katie A. Nelson), Beast's Man and Beauty's Maid, Beauty sees who he really is.
She finds him to be a handsome—and kind—prince to whom she will be married.
