West Seneca West High School's 'Beauty & the Beast' to open Wednesday

West Seneca West High School's 'Beauty & the Beast' to open Wednesday

The classic tale of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is one that has resonated with many generations.

In a testament to that point, the film has been re-released this winter in digital 3D. As the movie is returning to the big screen, West Seneca West Senior High School is preparing to bring the story to life on stage this week.

The largest undertaking in many years, the musical production involves approximately 100 students as cast, crew and orchestra members. Making the musical a reality also requires the support of the rest of the school, which is widely involved in promoting the production.
