St Cath’s Presents Beauty And The Beast

The community are invited to “be enchanted by the talents of St Catherine’s Catholic College students” as they take to the stage for their upcoming College musical Beauty and The Beast.

Students have been busy in rehearsals learning lines, dance routines, singing, and perfecting the musical score for the upcoming production set to hit the stage in April.

The College invites the community to come and sing along to their production of the 1991 Disney romantic fantasy film.

More than 25 students ranging from Year 7 to Year 12 make up the ensemble playing instruments, being cast in the dance troupe, or shining in a lead role.

College Cultural Middle Leader P-12 and Musical Director Mrs Betsy Atkinson praised the work of the many students and staff involved in putting together the production.

"The cast and crew are 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,” he said.

Tickets are now on sale and are selling fast so be sure to book now via the Proserpine Entertainment Centre website or by phoning them on 4945 0405.
