WHEN someone says Beauty and the Beast, everyone immediately thinks of the Disney version.
Teign School's production was anything but. With a talking poodle, a psychotic witch and a cross-dressing father, it promised to be a 'comedy, pantomime, musical' and it didn't disappoint.
Students spent months rehearsing the play and it showed in a slick and smooth performance.
Filled with catchy songs, well choreographed dance routines and amazing costumes, the audience couldn't help but get involved, with cries of 'Poodle Power' echoing throughout the theatre.
There were laughs aplenty, mainly in the form of Georgina Stephens as a giant, talking French poodle called Felix. Harriet Godfrey made a beautiful Rose, while Connor Picek-Jordan was the handsome prince turned monstrous beast.
Zara Williams played the evil Malabelle, a witch with some serious issues, and Paul Cook made an excellent dame.
Teign's Beauty and the Beast was an evening of entertainment for all. It was obvious the cast had enjoyed the time spent on the play, creating a performance worthy of the highest praise.
Congratulations must also go to all the staff and students behind the scenes. Without them the play would not have been possible.
