Disney's musical version of "Beauty and the Beast" is the 10th annual production put on stage by Anderson School's Little Red Schoolhouse players.
It's impressive to see what the 63 children -- from third through eighth grade -- have accomplished. They've been rehearsing two or three times a day, before and after school and at lunch.
Costumes, props and sets have been created with help from a small army of parents.
At Thursday's final rehearsal, the stage at the Emerson Cultural Center was filled with children belting out "Be Our Guest." They carried elaborate props -- oversize cakes, hams, candles -- as they marched around a full-size set. Several sang from a high balcony.
