Heritage Christian brings Disney classic to life

Kelowna school opens play and some other community events from the area

Heritage Christian School proudly presents Beauty and the Beast Jr. from March 13 to 17.

This “tale as old as time” tells the story of the transforming power of love, that can turn something hideous into something beautiful.

This is the 12th year, Delayne Cama Moroka has headed the production as director. This year she has brought in a solid team to help her with assistant director Toni Lyons, choreographer Krista Clement and vocal director Sherri Funk as well as dozens of volunteers.

Newcomers Ellie Dueck and Boaz Funk are cast as Belle and the Beast. The cast of over 40 students have been working hard to bring this timeless classic to life. Rehearsals started back in September which included weekly drama, dance and vocal practices.

HCS is inviting the public out to watch one of your favourite Disney characters, Belle go on a great adventure where she meets a host of characters such as Lumiere, Mrs. Potts and cute little Chip.
