Here are the cast members for the Peebles Elementary spring 2017 presentation of “Beauty and the Beast.”

This year Peebles Elementary will be presenting Walt Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast, Jr.”  This play is a type of drama that tells a story through songs, dances, and dialogue.
Curriculum Connections to this play are arts-integration lesson plans that combine theater with other subjects, including English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science and Visual Arts.  PES physical education teacher Dana Johnson is leading this project and is excited about the educational and social opportunities it will provide to the students involved.
During the month of September, auditions were held and approximately 40 students were provided a cast or crew role.  In addition to the cast and crew, about 50 fourth grade students are participating in the choir that will sing songs for the production.  The Peebles High School band is also performing at the beginning and end of the play.
The production of this drama is made possible by the cooperation of many organizations, businesses, and individuals.  Many area businesses donate monetarily and many volunteers will be charged with ensuring the success of the play.  Without the help of our community, the production would not be possible.
The school is excited about its second annual school drama (Cinderalla was presented in 2015-16).  It is a timeless tale through which students are not only learning historical background but also the ethical viewpoint emphasizing that beauty is internal, not external.
PES hopes that everyone in our community and those surrounding will mark the date on their calendars.  The performance is scheduled for March 31 at 7 p.m. at Peebles Elementary.
