Rehearsals have kicked off for Highfields’ upcoming Lower School musical, Beauty And The Beast, which is set to wow crowds next year.
The magical musical will be staged by students from Years 7-9 between February 26th and 28th 2020.
The talented cast gathered for their first rehearsal ahead of the summer holidays, and performance staff said they got off to a great start.
Ms S Bishop, Highfields’ Head of Extra Curricular Performance, said: “We are delighted to bring the cast together to start rehearsals ahead of the summer holidays.
“Everyone involved thoroughly enjoyed a productive first rehearsal, and is very much looking forward to seeing the production take shape over the coming months.
“Beauty And The Beast is a firm family favourite and we’re excited to do it justice by bringing it to life in spectacular Highfields fashion.”
The show is one of two musical productions due to be staged in the next academic year.
Rehearsals are already well under way for a production of The Addams Family, which will be staged by students from Years 10 to 13 from November 6th-8th.
Summer Schools will be held for both casts, which will run during the first week of the holidays, from July 22nd-26th.
The Summer School, which will take place from 10am-3pm every day, promises to be a fun packed week during which students will rehearse for the upcoming shows whilst also making some props and costumes for both productions.
