Curtain ready to go up on Beauty and the Beast

Pupils from Chetwynde School are ready for the curtain to go up on their latest production running next week.

Costumes have arrived and the students have done a full run through in preparation for this year’s musical Beauty and the Beast.

Imogen Jones and Zofia Garbacz will alternate playing the lead role of Belle and Charlie Heigh has secured the part of the Beast in the Disney show.

Katherine Parkinson, head of creative faculty at Chetwynde School which is part of South Cumbria Multi-Academy Trust, said the show involved 65 children from across the senior school.

“They have worked hard to perfect their lines since before Christmas and are now putting the final polish on a show which is set to be one of the most spectacular we have ever done.

“We hired the costumes from a professional company so that everyone looks and feels the part of their characters and it looks absolutely brilliant when they are all on stage together.”

“Chetwynde is known for its strong focus on performing arts and we have some really outstanding pupils in the cast this year. It’s such a good experience for them all to be on stage performing to packed crowds and growing in confidence.”

The musical features popular songs Be Our Guest, Something There, The Mob Song and Gaston as well as dance routines.

There are a limited number of tickets left for the show, which runs February 6-7 in the school’s theatre.

Pupils from other primary schools in the Trust are also invited to see a preview of the show.
