Due to multiple breakthrough COVID cases in the ensemble of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, the remaining performances need to be canceled.

This is a heartbreaking outcome for our cast, crew, staff, and audiences who made this production such an important and impactful experience.

They all deserve a final standing ovation.

Scheduled performances of Hedwig and the Angry Inch will continue in the 1938 Original Theatre. 

In the meantime, stay healthy, wear a mask, get vaxxed and boosted.

Affected patrons should contact the Box Office (301-924-3400) to explore their options.


Be our guest for the holidays as the classic animated story comes to life on the Olney Theatre Mainstage. It’s a tale as old as time, but it gets a new look from Tony-nominated director Marcia Milgrom Dodge (one of the featured professional directors on the Disney+ show Encore), who wowed Olney audiences with her Helen Hayes Award-nominated production of Once. Our biggest show of the year brings the whole family together for a magical and memorable musical about the redemptive power of love. Join Belle, Lumiere, Cogsworth, and the rest of the gang in the Beast’s cursed castle for an escape to a world where beauty is more than skin deep and happily ever after is just a rose petal away.
