Are you looking for a FUN, cheap, family-friendly activity that is produced almost entirely by middle school students? Look no further than Stuart Hobson Middle School’s production of Beauty and the Beast, Jr., playing this weekend!
Join the Stuart Hobson Drama Players as they bring a tale as old as time to vibrant life. Under the guidance of the incredible Ms. Tori Pergerson, the players have been working hard for months, designing costumes, sets, lighting and sound in order to bring three incredible performances to life. Also, prepare to be bowled over by the cute: Students from Peabody and School Within School will be featured in cameo roles! It’s no understatement to say that we are very lucky to have such a great theater arts program in the heart of the Hill.
Tickets are only $8 for anyone age 4 and up or $22 for a family of four. You may buy tickets online at http://capitolhillclusterschool.org/beauty or you can get them at the door. The kids have been working really hard, so it would be wonderful to see the neighborhood turn out for them. (Disclaimer: My son is in this show, and so I cannot be impartial. Make sure you clap extra hard for my Lumière!)
