With high school musicals across NJ canceled, News 12 wanted a give a few a chance to show off their chops

Posted: Updated:

Spring high school musicals across New Jersey had to be canceled or postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

With so much work and preparation that goes into the productions, News 12’s Brian Donohue thought that it was a shame that all the work wouldn’t be experienced. So, he went to visit three Linden High School students who scored roles in the school’s rendition of “Beauty and the Beast.”

Senior Ryan Sautner was set to play Gaston, junior Mackenzie Kuntz was to play Belle, and senior Jayan Tapia scored the role of The Beast.
