“Beauty and the Beast,” a musical produced by Barnett Elementary PTA, features 60 Barnett students in grades three through six. Cast members have dedicated three to four days a week after school for the past three months preparing for the show.

Directing the production is Lori Stateham, a Barnett parent, the school’s computer teacher and a PTA volunteer. Assisting her is a crew of volunteers who have put in hundreds of hours preparing for the show.

The students have learned skills such as acting, singing, dancing, dancing while singing and blocking, and a few have learned how to manage sets and props backstage, notes Corinna Powers with the PTA.

The production will debut at Olive Peirce Middle School on May 7 at 6:30 p.m. and will be followed by two performances at the school on May 9.
