BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
The school was transfixed for four nights by the Footlighters' all-singing, all-dancing production of the musical Beauty and the Beast. A cast of 45 romped through the two-and-a-half hour Broadway show, backed by a 10-piece orchestra. Whirling 24-student choruses of enchanted flatware in the Beast's spellbound castle supported the speaking-singing roles. The show sold out two nights and almost sold out the other two.
Among the many stars were Molly Shimko as Belle, Tony Salvatoriello as the Beast, Marc Whittington as Gaston and Eric Meade as Lumiere. The director was English teacher Alan Haehnel. Jane Woods led the orchestra and Denise Frawley choreographed. In the 13-student production crew, Nick Sinnott-Armstrong designed the sound and Taylor Hornig designed the lighting.
