Talking teapots and clocks, an emotionally-stunted beast, a determined princess - you know the story. American Stage's Park show is the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast. Per tradition, the beast is really a young prince spellbound to appear as a monster due to his shallow ways, and if he and Belle can fall in love, like really in love, he'll be free. But as most Disney fairy tales go, there's a time crunch. Sing along with us in the park.

How long is the trail?

The trail is just under a mile. The trail is not paved but is wheelchair accessible; expect bumps in the path.

How long is the show?

Each adventure will last for approximately 60–70 minutes.

Dos and Don'ts

Do bring bug spray, a reusable water bottle, extra layers (a jacket will do!), a poncho, comfortable walking shoes, and a headlamp with a red light setting (if you don’t have one, we will provide it).

Don’t smoke or vape on the trial, feed wildlife, or bring your own flashlight.

Can I bring food and drinks?

Boyd Hill is a nature preserve; we are not allowed to bring food or drinks on the trail. There will also be no concessions for sale.

Can I bring my pet?

Pets are not allowed.

Where are the restrooms?

Patrons can find restrooms at the park next door to Boyd Hill, which is still located within the parking lot.  

Where should I park?

The parking lot and trail entrance are located at 1101 Country Club Way S, St. Petersburg, FL 33705. As you walk toward the visitor center, there will be a gate to your right with American Stage signage and staff. You will enter through this gate.

Will I see snakes, alligators, and other live animals?

Since the performance is at the nature preserve, it is possible to see animals in their natural habitat. But there will be staff with you at all times.
