Belle is a smart, confident young woman from a small village who is able to stand up to Gaston while showing compassion for Maurice, the Servants and eventually the Beast.
Maurice is an aging and eccentric inventor, but more importantly, the adoring and protective father of Belle, a crazy old man who has some very strong emotions: fear and fatherly love.
The Beast is a young prince who was hideously transformed by the Enchantress s spell. He is a dictator, a hurt child, a hero, a defender and a smitten prince.
Gaston is pompous and dim-witted and will do whatever it takes to win Belle s hand. Gaston has all the confidence in the world but lacks the humility to balance it.
Lefou is Gaston’s equally dim-witted lackey.
The Silly Girls are in love with Gaston and will do almost anything just to be near him.
Lumiere is a confident, charming French mâitre’d who (under the enchantress’s spell) is becoming a candelabra. He has an incessant bickering rapport with Cogsworth.
Cogsworth is the British major-domo of the castle who is becoming a clock. Like all of the castle’s Servants, he shows a fatherly compassion for Belle yet is perfectly submissive to the master, the Beast. Cogsworth enjoys feeling like the boss and has no problem getting into it with Lumiere.
Mrs. Potts is the castle’s endearing cook who is becoming a teapot. She conveys comforting, maternal qualities amidst the chaos that is breaking out in the castle.
Babette is the maid of the castle who is turning into a feather duster. She misses the finer things in life. Babette is happy to be at Belle s service at a moment s notice, but her true heart comes through in Human Again.
