Students from the Founders’ Hall Drama Club will present “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Jr.” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday (May 4 to 6) in the auditorium at Francis McClure Elementary School, 500 Longvue Drive, White Oak.
Last week, cast members previewed songs for members of the McKeesport Area School Board.
The box office opens at 6 p.m. each night of the show. The producer/director is Edward Moore, choreographer is Cassie Fedor, musical director is Drew DeCarlo and technical designer is Nathan Cross.
“I think that what works well in our district is that we have a theater program of middle school students who have been performing together for years. By the time they get to high school they’re like professionals,” Superintendent Tia Wanzo said, adding that this spring’s high school musical, “All Shook Up,” was “phenomenal.”
“Hopefully you have the opportunity to see what will be a wonderful show,” Wanzo said. “They’re always really great.”
