The East Meadow School District, in partnership with The FREE Players, presented two enthusiastic and fun-filled performances of the award-winning Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Jr. at East Meadow High School on Oct. 20 and 21.
The FREE Players are a talented group of individuals with developmental disabilities who have brought their enthusiasm to the stage for the past 15 years. The acting troupe, whose cast includes alumni of the district, has partnered with the East Meadow school community for several years.
District administrators, Board of Education trustees, members of SEPTA (Special Education PTA) and community members attended both weekend performances. Net proceeds from the performances benefited both The FREE Players and East Meadow School District’s SEPTA and SERCL.
