On March 24 and 25, The Bellows Falls Union High School Drama Club presented its professional level talent through the breathtaking performance of Beauty and The Beast. The show was a success with a record showing of people making it the biggest audience the BFUHS Drama Club has ever seen. Overall, the show was spectacular; the sets were beautifully made and worked well throughout, the costumes also caught the audience’s attention with their own flare, and the voices of the actors stunned.
The cast could not have been any more fitting. Elle Guyon was perfectly cast as Belle, moving everyone with her strong but gentle voice, as she conveyed Belle in the most genuine way possible. Jackson Purdy as Gaston brought humor into the show with his sly jokes and irony and his impeccable stage presence and trademark expressiveness. As did Emily Wunderle, who gave the audience her share of comic timing along with a great faux French accent as Lumiere. Ira Richardson was also completely immersed in his character, Cogsworth, and played the clock-man’s timidity towards the Beast flawlessly. Both Beasts, Paul Ryan Chipman and Alden Parmalee, proved their Beastliness with brooding and booming voices and strong acting. Contrary to the Beast’s character, Mrs. Potts was portrayed by Grace Thompson who amazed everyone with her elegant voice. The whole cast brought the characters to life and made the show magical and wonderful.
In addition to the cast many others helped to create the first-rate play. This includes Mrs. Emond as Director, Lila Guerrina with the lights, and Band Director Nick Pelton and the superb BFUHS pit band. The stamina of the band was incredible – playing for three days straight without faltering. All of these elements created yet again a spectacular Spring musical for BFUHS!
