When Poppa's cargo ships sank in a storm, he, Angeline (Beauty), and her two selfish sisters are forced to move to a small village of stilt houses in the Louisiana swamps. This version offers just enough Cajun flavor in both story and song (which can be emphasized or toned down) to keep interest at a high peak while closely following every move in the original fairy tale. When Angeline's sisters foil her attempt to return to the castle, a fantasy-like alligator and pelican, as well as a bumbling but well-meaning suitor, create rapid-fire action by delivering the dying Beast to the village just as he turns into Gabriel, a wealthy man who asks Angeline to marry him. The sisters are turned into statues until they repent, and the villagers begin to celebrate.
