Tale as old as time.. Our middle school students are preparing for fantastic performances of Beauty and the Beast on Thursday, February 29, Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2. The drama students aren’t the only ones who have been putting in hard work for the show. Our Art 2 High School students, under the guidance of the art teacher, Nicole Seitz, have spent the past few months designing, creating and painting the play set.
“Painting the set for the middle school play is an intense collaboration of our Art 2 high school students. It's the first time many have painted anything on that scale. From initial design sketches to final details, students learn to pitch in where needed, but also to take initiative and divide tasks. Whether adding light and shadow to trees or designing lighting or marble floors, our students know what working as a team truly looks like. I'm so proud of this group of artists”, exclaimed Mrs. Seitz.
This has been such a fun experience for the art students. Freshman Mady Fennessy said, “Being able to work with my friends on such a big project was super fun. I got to know a lot of new people.”
Make plans to attend this classic fairytale as our middle school students bring this Award-winning animated film to life! You’ll be captivated by the spectacular music, costumes and set design!
