Beauty of a show at King’s

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

STU­DENTS at King’s wowed their au­di­ence with a won­der­ful per­for­mance of Beauty and the Beast.

All 66 year six stu­dents played a part in the King’s School pro­duc­tion of the 18th cen­tury French clas­sic, which was per­formed for three nights.

The Dis­ney play tells the story of Belle, a bright, beau­ti­ful and in­de­pen­dent young woman, played by Ge­orgie San­ders, who is taken pris­oner by a beast, played by James Hart­ley, in its cas­tle.

De­spite her fears, she be­friends the cas­tle’s en­chanted staff and learns to look beyond the beast’s hideous ex­te­rior, al­low­ing her to recog­nise the kind heart and soul of the true prince that hides on the in­side.

Join­ing Ge­orgie and James were Wil­liam Bar­rett as Cogsworth, Phoebe Thom­son as Lu­miere, and Henry Fraser as Gas­ton.

Soulla Co­standa, di­rec­tor and King’s Year Six teacher, said: “The Beauty and the Beast is a time­less tale with a strong moral mes­sage read­ily ap­pre­ci­ated by our cast.

“The vi­brant mix of song, dance and melo­drama was en­joyed by all and played to over 500 mu­si­cal theatre en­thu­si­asts over three won­der­ful nights.”
