Script

Audition Central: Disney's Beauty and the Beast JR.

Script: Gaston

(Feeling the VILLAGERS' eyes on her, BELLE whirls around. They go back to their activities then exit. BELLE heads for home. GASTON runs in front of her and strikes a pose.)

GASTON
Hello... Belle.

BELLE
Bonjour, Gaston.

(GASTON blocks BELLE's way.)

Excuse me.

(GASTON snatches Belle's book.)

Gaston. May I have my book, please?

GASTON
(flipping through the book)
How can you read this? There's no pictures.

BELLE
Well some people use their imagination!

GASTON
Belle, it's about time you got your head out of these books and paid attention to more important things.

(GASTON strikes a handsome pose.)

LEFOU
Hint... hint.

BELLE
Like you? Gaston, please! I have to get inside to help my father.

LEFOU
That crazy old fool. He needs all the help he can get!

(GASTON and LEFOU laugh heartily.)

BELLE
Don't talk about my father that way!

GASTON
(GASTON thunks LEFOU on the head.)
Yeah! Don't talk about her father that way!
