Play was a ‘Beauty'

On March 21, I was privileged to attend the Highlands Middle School spring musical, “Beauty & The Beast Jr.” The experience was uplifting.

The student cast put on a Broadway-worthy performance, proving that all of the practice, hard work and dedication they put into preparation really paid off.

The choreography was excellent and the stage presence of these future thespians was nothing short of breathtaking.

As these talented young artists sang and danced, I could not help but get swept up by their enthusiasm.

The set designs were very professional; I'd expect to see these in a show in New York City. The stage crew changed sets swiftly and quietly, adding to the enjoyable performance.

Great job, Highlands. Be very proud of yourselves. And don't take my word for it — the evidence was in the standing ovation at the finale!

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
