Beauty and the Beast: School Production 2024

February 9, 2024

With a cast and crew of 180 pupils from Year 5-Upper Sixth taking part in this year’s Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’, it was most definitely a Tale As Old As Time and one we will never forget.

Each and every girl stepped up to their role, and we are incredibly proud of them all!

Here are some quotes from the main cast:

I have really enjoyed the whole experience of Beauty and the Beast – it has been an amazing opportunity for me, and I am very grateful! It was an incredible final show for all the Upper Sixth.
Maddie W (Upper Sixth) – Lumiere

This production has been one of my best experiences while being at Croydon High. I had so much fun being involved in such a spectacular production and hope that our audience enjoyed our shows as much as I enjoyed being a part of them.
Jessica L (Lower Sixth) – Maurice

I loved this year’s production of Beauty and the Beast and think it could be the best show yet. It was fantastic to be a part of it, and I thoroughly enjoyed participating in it and can’t wait to see what is in store for us next year.
Naima B (Year 9) – Chip

I have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this year’s whole school production of Beauty and the Beast. I made new friends,  memories and had so much fun putting on the show – everyone should be so proud of themselves!
Ava G (Year 10) – Monsieur D’Arque

I had so much fun being a part of Beauty and the Beast. From the rehearsals to the performance, I loved it all! I created some amazing memories and will always remember the whole experience – especially the final show.
Jessica W (Upper Sixth) – Cogsworth

This production was so incredible! It was exciting to be a part of the retelling of a childhood classic. I liked playing Babette as she had some excellent one-liners, and it was great to make the audience laugh.
Sasha G (Upper Sixth) – Babette

I absolutely loved taking part in this year’s production! I made so many memories and new friends. I will miss the iconic role of Madame, which has grown on me. It was a wonderful experience and the best production I have participated in yet!
Juliana G (Year 11) – Madame de la Grande Bouche

I have had so much fun doing Beauty and the Beast this year! It has been so enjoyable, as I have loved working with the other year groups to create such a fantastic final show that I will always remember!
Emily M (Upper Sixth) – Lefou

It has been a huge pleasure to have taken part in this year’s production of Beauty and the Beast. The whole school musicals have always been a highlight of my year, and getting to work with everyone in different year groups is always delightful.
Fallon V (Upper Sixth) – The Beast

It has been a great privilege to have been a part of Beauty and the Beast this year. The whole experience has been enjoyable and time flew by incredibly fast! I loved working with people outside of my year group and having people to inspire but also look up to. Beauty and the Beast was overall my favourite production I have done here at Croydon High School!
