Music Monday, Tale As Old As Time: London's First Dance, to Beauty and the Beast

As we neared the end of Annie's Playhouse Summer Stars camp, London told us she had a secret about the big show. She told me that I needed to be ready with my camera for the Beauty and the Beast number and that she needed a long, flowing skirt, but not much more. After the full company launched into the program with Be Our Guest, we didn't have long to wait for London's big surprise... her very first "pas de deux" with an older boy from camp, performed behind another camper's solo on "Beauty and the Beast." Congratulations, London... may this be the first in a long life of romantic dance.

Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then somebody bends

Just a little change
Small to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
Ever just as sure
As the sun will rise

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast

Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast

how wonderful for you and your duaghter!

i was just remarking to my own daughter (now 18 and going to college) how when she was "little" we nearly wore out the VHS copy of this tape... even now, though i have (conservatively) seen the movie nearly 75 times, i still love it and the music for the memories they evoke :)
