JIS’s Production of Beauty and the Beast

JIS Beauty and the Beast Poster

It was unfortunate that I was down with the flu and couldn’t make it to any of the shows. Nevertheless, I received much positive feedback from friends and students who watched the show. They said they enjoyed it and I’m happy to have played my part by teaching lead actors, multi-role actors as well as choir members for the past few months leading up to the show.

This was the second time I worked on this musical, the first being with Relentless Studios, as their Voice Coach.

I am truly proud of James Bannister who took on the role of the Beast. He has never had a single singing lesson in his life prior to this production. When I first heard him a few months back, I knew he had a natural talent. With lots of focused practice and commitment to lessons, he proved that he could deliver with excellence, within a short time frame of about 3 months.

I’m equally proud of my other students who had lead roles – Lois Hogan who played Chip, Rebecca Yahya as Cogsworth, Athena Chalmers as Monsieur d’Arque and Melodee Goh as Babette; and students who bagged multi-roles and chorus parts – Olivia Smith, Maddie Fillion, Livi Gillam, Kiara Kruger, and Franchezqa Kroeger.

Well done, everyone! Keep up the great work!
