Madison Junior School sixth, seventh and eighth graders are set to perform Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast Jr.” musical on Saturday, February 9 at 4 pm at the Madison Junior School auditorium.  Funds raised at the shows will be used to produce future MJS musicals.  Tickets are available at the door for $7 per adult and $5 per student.

“The eighty students who are performing and assisting with the musical are an amazingly talented and professional group.  They have been an absolute joy to work with,” stated Ariana Ciolino, MJS’ chorus teacher who is directing her first production at the school.

“This year we decided to move the Saturday performance to the afternoon at 4 pm so that families in the community who have young children will be able to come and support the junior school students at this family-friendly production,” added assistant director Greg Paradis.  The two teachers are joined by Chris Crowley, who is in charge of the set and design of this year’s musical.

At Madison Junior School, the purpose is to develop life-long learners who are informed, responsible and productive young citizens.  Faculty and administration try to achieve this by providing challenging and diverse programs that reflect high expectations of a caring environment. Opportunities abound to learn effectively, to think critically, and to participate wholeheartedly, both in the classroom and in clubs and sports.

For more information on the MJS Musical, please contact Ariana Ciolino or Greg Paradis at Madison Junior School, 160 Main Street, at 973-593-3149.

Update:  Due to the weather, tomorrow evening performance will be move to Saturday evening.  If you bought tickets for Friday evening, these tickets can now be used for the Saturday performance at 7:30pm.  As of now, we will still be holding the regularly scheduled performance at 4:00pm on Saturday.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school.
