PHOTOS: Scaffolding Erected Inside Theater of the Stars, Home to Beauty and the Beast at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Theater of the Stars, the home of Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, is currently under refurbishment. The show has been closed since the parks reopened last summer, and Disney Society Orchestra performed in the theater for about two months before entertainment cuts.

“For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” and the altered “A Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King” have both opened with live performers, so its possible Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage will be next. Theaters without live performers (including Enchanted Tiki Room, Country Bear Jamboree, and PhilharMagic) have even gotten rid of physical distancing as of this weekend.
