The full company is now rehearsing on both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons as well as a half day each Saturday, with some of the main characters also devoting time to individual singing lessons to perfect those show-stopping songs!

With a cast of more than 60 students, including a pit orchestra, the atmosphere at rehearsals has been extremely busy and energetic. This year the Arts team has introduced a management role of student director. This important post has been filled by students Frances Riddington and Nicola Brent. The pair has taken to this most important role with a great deal of enthusiasm and maturity, making every effort to get the very best out of the actors.

Belle - Anna Lamieri and Teigan Fisher-Stamp

Beast – Lucas Sperka

Gaston – Jack Bailey

Lafou – Tina Otula and Isabella Van der Putten

Lumiere – Aleksander Niggli

Mrs Potts – Arianna Pantalone and Aimee Wolff
