Tons of hard work on the stage is set to culminate this week in Kindersley.
Elizabeth Middle School is asking you to be their guest for a presentation of "Beauty and the Beast JR." this Tuesday and Wednesday night.
One of the directors for the upcoming performance Shaunesy Diemert talked about what the crowd can expect.
"This is 'Beauty and the Beast JR.'. It's kind of a spin on the classic Beauty and the Beast, with lots of the same songs, and music, and scripts obviously; with a few little twists as well."
The Drama Club had some good interest this year, and Diemert talked about making things a little bit more musical.
"We have a really big interest this year. We (also) have a few more musical members, that kind of wanted to take drama to the next level and do some musical theatre. It's been great to have that interest this year."
Diemert is super excited to see the kids back on stage, and hopefully welcome in a nice crowd to the school.
"We can't wait for everyone to come on out and see what the students have been working so hard on."
Tickets are available for the final showing tonight at the school in person, or over the phone, and people who are able should be able to purchase tickets through staff members. The play kicks off once again at 7:00 pm.
Learning a little more about the play, the 60-minute musical, designed for middle school-aged performers, is based on the 1994 Broadway production and Disney’s 1991 animated feature film.
Beauty and the Beast JR. tells the story of Belle, an adventurous young girl, and the Beast, her hideous captor who is actually a young prince trapped under a spell. In order to break the spell, the Beast must learn to love another and earn her love in return – before time runs out. With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, including a loving teapot, a charming candelabra, and a nervous mantel clock, Belle and the Beast find a beautiful friendship and love that neither knew was possible. Beauty and the Beast JR. features classic songs from the Academy Award®-winning film score such as “Be Our Guest” and “Belle,” as well as original songs from the 1994 Tony nominated Broadway musical.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is presented through special arrangement with and all materials are provided by Music Theatre International. For more information about licensing Beauty and the Beast JR. or other Disney shows, please visit www.DisneyMusicals.com.
