Performing Arts

Since our founding in 1919, all students have been encouraged and welcomed to "take the stage." Courses are designed for students to build a foundation of skills in music and theatre, and to continually develop those skills through a variety of classroom and performance experiences. Opportunities include vocal and instrumental music, acting and technical theatre.

Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.

Plot: The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
