YRHS school musical to return after four year hiatus

Three shows between Nov. 25 and 26.

YORKTON — The Yorkton Regional High School will be bringing the classic fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast to life on Nov. 25 and 26.

"It's our first musical in four years due to COVID," said Adelle Sawatzky, teacher and Musical Director for the production.

Rehearsals for the production started Sept. 1 in anticipation of the three showings.

Sawatzky said that the school musical is traditionally a bi-annual production, but with the nature of COVID-19 the production had been put on haitus.

The production's pit band will feature two keyboards, four trumpets, two violins, drums, trombone, saxophone and a flute with about 50 students making up cast and crew.

Sawatzky, who has been at the YRHS for two years, said this is her first time directing a production, but has a co-director who has worked on several YRHS musicals.

"This is my first time doing one here, but my co-director Kaely Neibrandt has done three in the past."

Three showings of the musical are set for Nov. 25 at 7:00 p.m and Nov. 26 at 1:00 p.m and 7:00 p.m.

Tickets are available through cast and crew members or from Hearn's Pharmacy, Fuzztone Music and the YRHS office.
