College Production 2019 – Beauty and the Beast


Every two academic years, the Performing Arts Department creates a whole College musical theatre production, and in December 2019 it will be Disney's Beauty and the Beast!  We are very excited to see hopeful stars of the stage in auditions for the show, which will be held on Tuesday, 10  and Thursday, 12 September.

Detailed information about the roles that will be auditioned can be found on the College website and on our Department notice boards.  Audition booklets that contain all audition material are now available and can be collected from the Drama Office.  If you wish to take part, we encourage you to collect a booklet and prepare for your audition during the summer break.

Students from all Year Groups (including new Years 7 and 12 students) are welcome to audition for parts, and there is guidance on the Audition Information sheet about which roles would be appropriate for your Year Group.  Don't be discouraged if you think you have something to offer for the production.  This is your moment!

There will be a large ensemble for the production with many smaller characters that pop up throughout the story.  The ensemble is not being auditioned, and you will be able to sign up as an ensemble member during the week beginning Monday, 9 September.

Details of the rehearsal schedule will be published in September, but rehearsals will begin from the week beginning Monday, 23 September, predominantly on Tuesdays and Thursdays after College and some lunchtimes.  Your attendance requirement will vary depending on your role, but you should keep Tuesdays and Thursdays available.  You should also expect a whole weekend rehearsal on 7 and 8 December, together with a full commitment during show week.

There will be five full performances of Beauty and the Beast, from Wednesday, 11 to Saturday, 14  December, and as one of the landmark College events of the year, will last in your memory for years to come!  Be a part of it... be our guest!!
