TEKOA — Local elementary school students will present their version of “Beauty and the Beast” on stage at Empire Theatre on Tuesday, May 31, and Wednesday, June 1.
“We’ve been working very hard for months,” 12-year-old actress Aislinn Gamble said. “I’m Bobette, the feather duster.”
According to Gamble, the play features students in third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade; she’s a sixth-grader.
The play is being directed by Mrs. Mendoza, who also designed the costumes. Mrs. Schultz has been assisting her, specifically helping students’ character development, Gamble said.
