Beauty of a show at King’s
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.”
