Close to 100 students are involved in the musical, including 30 singers on stage, 15 musicians in the full live orchestra, and dozens of others behind the scenes creating the costumes and building the sets.

“Several departments have done great work on this project. The set is super impressive, and the programs and costumes are stellar,” said production manager Ron de Haan in a press release.

Competition was stiff for singing positions, and the result is some very fine music, said de Haan.

“The cast is very, very talented, and the music and characters make this musical a pleasure to rehearse and perform.”

The Beauty and the Beast musical, based on the 1991 animated Disney movie, follows the story of a selfish prince who has been turned into a beast as punishment for his actions. To become human again, he must win the love of a woman.

Gill Hoogstra and Shawn Deddens play the title roles of Belle and the Beast in the production.

Tickets range in price from $10 to $20, and can be purchased online at www.credochs.com.

The Abbotsford Arts Centre is located at 2329 Crescent Way.
