BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
By Francesca Schifano and Mirabelle Meyers
This years MVM musical is Beauty and the Beast Jr.
Callbacks are December 11 and 12, the callback list is posted in the front hall where the lip sync battle posters were. The musical consists of grades 5-8. You may also participate in stage crew which is on Mondays, after school. The musical directors or adult helpers are Mr. Briggs, Sadie's father, Miss Reiner, our known and beloved chorus teacher, Mr.O’Dell is the set designer, and Mr. Park who also helps.
There are multiple roles as you probably know, but the leads are Belle and the Beast. But if you want to do the play and even if you don't get a designated character you still are in the Ensemble if you choose. Everybody who auditions will get a part in The Ensemble, at least.
This performance is a musical, meaning there will be singing as well as dancing.
