Beauty and the Beast – Upper School Musical

The little village of Jackson was treated to some talent this past weekend. The Upper School, along with some Middle and Lower School students, performed Beauty and the Beast.  If you aren’t familiar with the story it goes something like this:

The only person who seems to like her is a hunky brute (Brute #1) who thinks he’s all that.

She decided to give Brute #2 a second chance.

But Brute #1 decided to assert his bruteness and deal a near fatal blow to Brute #2.

Everyone lived happily ever after. The End!
