Tale as old as time
St. Croix Central Middle School drama students wowed a packed house with performances of the musical “Beauty and the Beast” Friday, March 28, and Saturday, March 29, in the SCC Middle School multipurpose room.
Co-director Michelle Schmitt said the students, along with help from SCC High School students, did all of the work on the sets themselves. Students prepared for the musical for more than three months.
“I want to thank the parents and students and staff for getting us through all the late rehearsals and preparations,” Schmitt said in an introduction before the show. “They have worked so hard and done such a fabulous job.”
The musical told the story of Belle, played by Robyn Pfeiffer, and her adventures in a magical castle when she is trapped in the castle of the unsightly and temperamental Beast, played by Michael Lefeber.
In true fairy tale fashion, all ends happily as the curse is broken, and Belle and the Beast, who becomes human along with his beloved servants, fall in love.
