Accolade for Beauty and the Beast
Letter to the editor
The audience experienced magic during the "Disney's Beauty and the Beast" show at Hillsborough High School.
I marveled at the level of talent, intricate set design, and how well the actors and musicians were able to transport the audience to Belle and Gaston’s village. A high school theater program gives students such wonderful opportunities to not only act, sing, and dance but also to be part of the orchestra, production staff, and the chance to appreciate how much support they get from so many high school staff members and parents during the months leading to the performances (a hint for students to thank them all when life goes back to normal).
I would like to thank Director BJ Solomon and Musical Director Christine Micu who helped transform their students and guide them year after year to bring out the best in them.
Teachers can be transformative people in their students’ lives and we all have a teacher to thank when we look back at our learning experiences. Student achievement comes naturally when students discover what they like or are passionate about.
As a member of the Board of Ed, I am obliged to state that my viewpoint does not represent that of my fellow board members. I dare say that if they had the pleasure to watch the play, they surely would agree that the audience thoroughly enjoyed “being guests!”
