Lumiere, played by Will Thompson, is part of an impressive looking lineup in Freyberg High School’s Beauty and the Beast.
An epic array of costumes has ensured Freyberg High School’s Beauty and the Beast production looks every bit as good as the Disney film.
The Palmerston North school’s production this year runs from October 20-24.
The impressive costumes are owned by a Christchurch woman, but were made by Weta Workshop and make sure the young cast look the part.
About 120 students are involved in the show, including cast, orchestra and production. The orchestra started preparing in November and stage rehearsals started in February, before Covid-19 delayed things.
