The biennial Christian College Production is always a highlight of the College year. The most recent production of Disney’s Beauty and The Beast was no exception.
Over the weekend, 130 students from Years 5 to 12 presented a show that delighted and surprised their audience.
The rigorous rehearsals, planning and commitment from the entire cast and crew came to fruition on opening night- Friday 24th April with a sell out audience enjoying 2 further shows on Saturday.
The production featured a range of characters very familiar to many and is based on the classic movie. The audience witnessed the Beast, played by Alexander Jeantou (Year 12) and Belle, played by Casey Reid (Year 10) form a relationship regardless of the Beast’s hideous appearance. This heartwarming production is also about the power of not judging a book by its cover and the importance of those ideas. Perfect for all ages, the show celebrates family, perseverance, compassion and love which are values held highly at Christian College.
Throughout the rehearsals, apart from the obvious singing, dancing and acting skills the students develop, they also learn about cooperation and teamwork, whether they are on the stage, in the wings or in the orchestra pit. As a result of this collaboration the College Community has enjoyed the forming of positive relationships and role modeling that in turn allows students to develop character and confidence.
The students, families and College have a great sense of achievement and pride in the production and look forward to the next opportunity to share their talents with audiences in two more years.
