Beauty & the Beast Jr.   Bravo! Brava! Congratulations to the cast and crew of Beauty & the Beast Jr.!!! All those weeks of practice and rehearsals culminated in three amazing shows this weekend. The students worked with our professional team Ms. Holly (Director), Mr. Sean (Musical Director), and Ms. Anneliese (Choreography) to learn the ins and outs of live theater and what it takes to put on a show of this magnitude. The planning process started this summer with lots of hard work from our parent coordinators Sheila Cheney, Amy Burke, and Sarah Vehap. They dedicated countless hours to bringing the beloved story of Belle to the stage. The incredible amount of logistics they organized from costumes, to props, to set design, to programs, to tickets, to scheduling is mind blowing. Thank you ladies!!! Also thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped with sub-committees, at rehearsals, and the shows. We also appreciate all the time you spent at home helping your children learn their lines and songs! We couldn’t have done it with our the help and support of Mrs. Mirrione, Marty, and our custodial staff Rodrigo, Charlie, and Adrian. We hope you enjoyed “Being Our Guest” […]
