On Wednesday 29 June and Thursday 30 June, Year 6 girls staged four delightful performances of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
Over the four shows, the audience enjoyed incredible performances by the Year 6 girls who showed great passion and commitment to their individual roles. Year 6 were supported on stage by the Year 5 girls and the Years 3 - 4 girls sang in the Choir.
The matinee performances were attended by visiting schools including The Hutchins School and Princess Street Primary who all thoroughly enjoyed the costuming and theatrics.
Fahan Principal, Tony Freeman, said, “With each performance at the School, I am continually impressed with the professionalism and confidence the girls display in fulfilling their roles and the passion they put into each performance.”
The Junior School Musical is a perfect example of a how the Fahan Community works seamlessly together on such events to ensure a successful production. The incredible team of Mrs Annie Tremayne, as Producer and Musical Director, and Mrs Deborah Butterworth, as Director and Choreographer, were supported by Fahan Senior Art Teacher, Ms Alex Pitt, who worked tirelessly with Mrs Sue Ekins and Miss Georgie Vozar to create a set worthy of any professional production.
The costumes and makeup team was comprised of parents and Fahan Alumni and a great number of staff were involved in many other aspects of making the musical a great success. A huge thank you goes to Ms Jo Bigg, Mrs Karen Rothery, Mr Owen Davies, Mr Jack Pereira, Mr Rod Nevin and Mr Andrew Kannegiesser.
The following are some thoughts from Year 6 girls:

“Everyone put in a lot of effort and improved from what they were at the beginning,” said Charlotte Beaumont, who played the role of Belle.
“My favourite part was getting to know everyone better,” said Charlotte Rankin, who played a Silly Girl.
“I liked how everyone fit in like a jigsaw puzzle so it all made sense,” said Arielle Bartulovic, who played the Book Seller.
