Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Everyone in the community is invited to sing along to some Disney classics at this year’s St Catherine’s Catholic College musical performance of Beauty and the Beast.
The 1999 Disney movie was one of the fairy tale’s most loved renditions with a host of memorable characters that are all re-created in this high-quality school performance.
Children of all ages will enjoy the show while proud parents watch their little ones turn into stars for the evening.
There are more than 25 students ranging from Year 7 to Year 12 participating this year – with the ensemble taking on a range of roles including playing instruments, being cast in the dance troupe, or shining in a lead role.
Musical Director Mrs Betsy Atkinson praised the work of the many students and staff involved in putting together the production.
"The cast and crew as so excited to present 'Beauty and The Beast' at the PEC," she said.
"We have had an absolute blast putting it together and would love for our community to come "be our guest" and enjoy the show."
College Principal Mr Luke Thomson said events such as college musicals were important as it is another way the College aims to provide every student with the opportunity to shine.
"The opportunity for our students to perform at such a professional venue is one that our students will treasure and look back on with great pride for years to come."
