“Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” features a cast and crew of Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville-Getchell students.  The musical is based on the 1991 Academy Award-winning animated feature and tells the story of Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman whose attempt to rescue her father leads to her capture by the Beast, a fearsome monster who was trapped in his gruesome form by an enchantress who also transformed everyone else in his castle. The only way for the Beast and his enchanted household to become human again is for the Beast to learn to love and be loved in return.

MP student Morgan Reed stars at The Beast with MG student Victoria Steward as Belle. Others in the cast include Ashlyn Stoker, Rylee Worth, Angela Ferguson, Amanda Littell, Collin Black, Jamie Lawler, Joe Wilson, Julia Miranda, Rachel Bartholomew, Nikole DuFour, Cassie Kunsleman, Ivanna Garza, Lily Siron, Morgan Wright, Kaylee Balam, Veronika Gardulski,  Angelina Nguyen, Aislynn Reed, Kris Lawler, Ada Garza, Lina Calderon and Amaya Villabos.
