Students will be telling a tale as old as time and kicking off their Sunday shoes during musical productions being staged at Saskatoon Public Schools collegiates.
Beauty and the Beast and Footloose are two of the productions taking place during November and December. Each production sees dozens of students involved on-stage or in technical and support roles, all under the leadership and guidance of teachers.
Tickets for each performance are available at the door or contact the school for more information.
