Beauty and the Beast at Backwell School

THE heart-warming musical Beauty and the Beast will be performed by an impressive cast of Backwell School pupils.

The classic Disney tale of discovering beauty from within is being put on by the school’s sixth form.

Students at the Station Road school have taken on the many roles involved in the show including directing and performing to costume production and financial management.

Proceeds from the show will go to the Meningitis Trust, a charity which works closely with families and people affected by meningitis.

The production’s co-director, Sophie Coghlan, said: “Meningitis Trust is an organisation that means a lot to me as I have had a close personal experience with the disease.

“I have also worked with the charity and the vast amounts of great work it has done for people over the past five years.”

Beauty and the Beast will be performed at Backwell School at 7.30pm on December 6-8.
