  • Hempfield High School Announces Beauty & The Beast as the Spring Musical

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 1/23/2020 10:45:00 AM

    Hempfield High School proudly presents Broadway's modern classic Disney’s Beauty and The Beast as the 2020 spring musical. Four performances will take place from Friday, March 6 through Sunday, March 8 in the school’s Performing Arts Center. The Friday and Saturday performances will be held at 7:30 p.m., while the Saturday and Sunday matinees occur at 2:30 p.m.  

    Hempfield’s 2020 stage production will feature a cast of 68 student performers and an all-student orchestra of 27 musicians directed by High School Choral Director & Music Teacher, Mr. Alejandro Ramos, and stage director/choreographer Cody Smith. 

    A senior citizen preview performance of Disney’s Beauty and The Beast is slated for Thursday, March 5 at 7:00 p.m. This dress rehearsal is free to all residents of Hempfield School District, ages 65 years and older. Tickets/pre-registration are not necessary for this Thursday event. At intermission, Mennonite Home Communities will host a senior citizen cookie break. 


    Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that played a remarkable 13-year run on Broadway and has been produced in 37 countries worldwide. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

    The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

    This "tale as old as time" is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities or, even more simply staged, Disney's Beauty and the Beast offers a great opportunity to bring your entire community together for family theatre at its best.


    In Hempfield’s production, junior Laura Claire Walker will play the role of Belle opposite of sophomore Noah Felty as Beast. Villain Gaston will be played by Sean Becker, and his side-kick Lefou is portrayed by Hunter Smith.  Dance Captain, senior Aliya Rajnic will perform with 14 feature dancers and 38 ensemble members.


    All seating is reserved. Cost is $12 for adults and $10 for students/children and senior citizens (age 65+). Public ticket sales began Monday, February 3, 2020. Tickets may be purchased in the following ways:
