Theatre Update: Beauty and the Beast


Laura Taylor, Contributor

After a successful year of live theatre at SCDS despite all of the bumps along the way due to COVID, the theatre department is back at it and jumping right in with their one act for competition. A tale as old as time, Beauty and the Beast Jr will be performed on October 28th and 29th at 7 pm. The morning after closing night, the cast will be competing at the GHSA One Act Regional Competition which is conveniently being held right here at Country Day in Jelks. If the show receives either first or second place, the cast will then be traveling about two and a half hours to the GHSA State-Level One Act competition. Our theatre department almost always does extraordinarily well at these competitions and has a great experience. It takes a lot of work and many hours after school but the passion of the students is always reflected by the amazing shows. Because we are bringing it to competition, it is only fifty five minutes of your night so we highly encourage everyone to come out and support Mr. Queenan’s unique take on the well known story.
