Mother Teresa Students put on Beauty and the Beast

The Grade 8 and 9 students of Ecole Mother Teresa’s theatre production module held four presentations of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and what immaculate shows they were.

In a full show that didn’t feel anything like a student led production, the young Sylvan Lake thespians weaved the tale as old as time and gave it new life that Hollywood would have a tough time replicating.

For those who missed the 90’s Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast is about a young avid reader named Belle who saves her father’s life by agreeing to live in an old dilapidated castle with a great beast. Throughout the course of the story, Belle is delighted by the enchanting castle hosts who include Lumiere the Candlestick and Cogsworth the Clock. By the end of the tale, Belle breaks the spell on the Beast and the castle by falling in true love releasing him from his captivity and revealing his true existence as a handsome Prince.

The actors of Mother Teresa were able to portray this story with perfect timing and accuracy as students, families and communities members awed at the brilliance of the acting and the power of the melodies throughout the course of the play.

To add to this stellar acting performance, a volunteer crew which worked the stage, sound and music seamlessly moved the audience through each scene with new backdrops, sounds and props providing a distinct audio and visual feel that allowed those watching to enter their imagination and forget that they were watching a play.

The play featured multiple musical ensembles including Gaston and Be our Guest that included singing, dancing and choreography that would suggest that these students were financially compensated for their time.

Each play ended with a roar of approval, which provided affirmation on the months of preparation that went into this production.

Indeed, each of these actors, actresses and technical crew members have a bright future in theatre if they so choose.

Kudos should be given to these young students and the hours that they took out of their busy lives to provide a theatrical experience in the Town of Sylvan Lake.
