Beauty and the Beast Preview

This weekend, the Columbus East Drama Department will present their production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (showtimes seen below).

Seniors Colton Graffa and Delaney Jackson play the lead roles of the Beast and Belle. They both enjoy the closeness of the cast and how it feels like a family.

“We’ve just really had to stick together and know each other really well because there’s a lot of waiting around and there’s a lot of working hard, so it’s just nice to get to know everyone like that,” Jackson said.

Both Graffa and Jackson are looking forward to the upcoming performances, especially the community aspects.

“I know there’s a lot of children showing up to the show and it’s really awesome to see all the kids get really into it,” Graffa said. “I’m really just excited to see the community enjoy the show.”

Similarly, Jackson is looking forward to getting the opportunity to talk to some of the people who come to the show.

“We get to go out afterwards in costume and talk to some of the people who saw the show and I’m really looking forward to that because I think the show means a lot more to people than we even know right now,” Jackson said.
