I might have missed some stuff, being in the pit and all, but there were a few mistakes during the matinees--most of them by the orchestra, according to our conductor.

-Babette's microphone kept turning off at really weird moments
-Cogsworth completely forgot his lines on the tour of the castle and had to ad lib

I'm sure there were more, but I think the ones I remember best are from rehearsals...

The bird didnt fall in "Belle" that Gaston shoots....
Le Fou was just like WTF to the audience and it worked...
Then our cogsworth decided it would be funny if when he and I (I was Lumiere) are talking about the other people in the castle that turned into things, to have someone backstage jiggle the bird out of the thingy...so when it did he said "Oh Raoul! It's happening faster with some of the others!" It was a bad idea and NOBODY got it....this made me flub a line cause my next line was something like what he had just said so I was like oh...Im turning into a candle...It was dreadful...

I saw a production at a high school (a very rich high school)
where the entire face and wig fell off
and the beast stares at it for a minute and screams "MY FACEEE???!?!?!"
So then Cogsworth is running around "Oh my goodness, I told you Lumiere, you can't work him up like this" And lumiere is trying to put his wig back on. After they covered up and tried to continue the audience was still cracking up. So finally after ten minutes of hysterical laughing they continued.

Basically the best cover in the history of theatre.

I fell down the stairs after "Gaston". We played it off as if I drank too much which convinced the audience.

Probably more, but I forget....

so I was a napkin/villager/dresser for Belle and we had a whole bunch of bloopers.

the most embarassing one for me is that fact that one night the bodice of Belle's dress wouldn't zip. we tried to pin it but it kept falling....so when she finally went onstage in the finale to meet the best they didn't dance he just had to hold her back. i felt so so so bad because that was my job. :oops:

also the silly girls would fall from time to time which was actually quite funny and then there were some missed lines.

the beast had some trouble with his face a few nights as well and one night belle's mic kept going out.

the best one though...one performance on of the napkins forgot her white spankies so she wore black. it mush have looked pretty funny from the audience.

such an amazing show though!!!

Dress rehearsal - the seamstress who made my gold dress decided not to finish it, so they pinned me into it as best they could

The minute the Beast took my arm, the dress came undone. Thank God I was wearing a white tank top and not the skin colored bodice I wore for the regular show. But the dress started coming off... the guy playing the Beast is like a brother to me, but has also had a huge crush on me for years so of course he is just totally embarrassed. We tried to do the dance.... and we're doing ok.... until the seamstress jumps onstage and decides to try to pin me in while I'm dancing! I was so embarrassed and so upset.

We got done and the Beast just looks at me.... thank goodness for the makeup because I knew his face was as red as the rose!

"I umm... Belle.... I umm.... don't remember my line..."

It wasn't the professional thing to do, but I can't say I blame the poor guy.... if the next line had been mine, I would've said the same thing!

The year before I attended my high school, they did 'Beauty and the Beast,' and I went to see it.

Right before the 'Mob Song,' you know how Gaston tries to kiss Belle, and she slaps him? Well... his wig came off when she slapped him.

He fiddled with it for a bit, but he couldn't fix it and it fell off. After a pause, he lowered his head and said, "Now I'm nothing."
