This year Twin Valley High School’s Theater Arts Club is producing the play Beauty and the Beast on April 4-5 at 7pm and again on April 6 at 2pm. The Sunday performance also includes a special “Prince and Princess Brunch” starting at 12. The brunch will include delicious food provided by the Cafeteria Crew, a variety of crafts and pictures with the cast in full costume. The participants will also receive optimum seating for the show at 2. The cast has been hard at work and is looking forward to performing such an iconic play for their peers and for the community.

“It is going to be an amazing experience! It’s going to be cool knowing that the audience members will know the storyline and songs,” stated leading lady Danielle Sabulsky (Senior) who will be playing Belle in the show. The whole cast has had high energy during rehearsals and are really bringing the Disney magic to the production.

“I’m glad we’re doing Disney again, they are really fun shows,” Sabulsky commented, “it’s neat when everyone knows the show.” The students and directors have faced a few challenges amidst the fun and games. The sets needed to create the magical landscape of this story have proven to be an exciting challenge for the stage crew members, headed by Mr. Sanders, TVHS’s shop teacher.

Directors and students alike are extremely excited about the journey this musical will take them on.“I absolutely love the rehearsals and how much we as a cast grow together like a family. I cannot wait for the performances; it is going to be absolutely magical” Sarah Dean a junior who is starring as Mrs. Potts, commented.

TVHS’s production of Beauty and the Beast is promising to be a show that old and young alike will enjoy watching. Larger than life sets, costumes and a storyline that is loved by all generations come together to create a show of a lifetime that this community will not want to miss. Go and see the show students and faculty! Break a leg to all cast and crew!
