A cast of 50 students from Waverley Christian College in Narre Warren South is preparing for the school’s latest production of Beauty and the Beast this month.

Showcasing students from years 7-12, audiences are set to enjoy the spectacular family show.

The countless hours of rehearsals enters its final week before it premiers on Thursday 29 August.

“The enthusiasm in very high among staff and students,” performing arts team leader Natalie Ruiz said.

“There is certainly a buzz in the air at school, with hallways and classrooms filled with music and singing each lunch time.”

“The show is only just over one week away! Whilst Friday and Saturday night’s shows are almost sold out, there are still lots of tickets available for opening night,” Ms Ruiz said.

Their hard work is evident as students have been rehearsing since December last year.

The students will be doing three performances including Thursday 29 August at 7pm, Friday 30 August at 7pm, and Saturday 31 August at 8pm.

Tickets are on sale via Prices: Adults $18.00; students $13.00; and kids under five (requiring a seat) $10.

Performances will be held at Waverley Christian College in the multi-purpose centre auditorium, Narre Warren South Campus.
