The Community Theatre of Howell is pleased to announce performances of The Little Mermaid JR where in a magical kingdom fathoms below, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel (Aubrie Gramer) longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. But first, she'll have to defy her father King Triton (Jack Oliveri), make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula (Tori Poloski), and convince Prince Eric (Zac Hines) that she’s the girl with the enchanting voice. Adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production, Disney's The Little Mermaid JR. features the hit songs "Part of Your World," "She’s in Love," and the Oscar-winning "Under the Sea."
To round out a very talented group of 44 youth from throughout Livingston County and beyond, you will also find Drew Laughner (Scuttle), Jacob Scherba (Sebastian), Kaitlyn Bloom (Carlotta), Nic Bishop (Flounder), Lauren Eldred and Maddie Haas (Flotsam and Jetsam), Tyler Dixon (Pilot and Chef Louis), and Joshua Ceccacci (Grimsby). Ariel is accompanied by her lovely Mersisters (Julia Coulier, Emily Harkins, Aubrey Klein, Tori Rogers, Bronsyn Sacker, and Rachel Wylie). Ursula’s counterparts, the Poor Unfortunate Souls (Abbey Bean, Amanda Bock, Alex Klein, Sarah Laughner, and Gwenna Zanin), endeavor to attain Ariel’s enchanting voice. Alongside Scuttle are 3 squawking gulls (Madison Lim, Jenna Pasfield, and Joseph Streight). Pilot’s crew, a group of sailors (Megan Bryne, Audrey Moyer, Ethan O’Dell, Carly Scruggs, and Stephanie Simonson), weather out the storm. No sea or land scene would be complete without the sea creatures or the lagoon animals (Aimee Bean, Becca Bishop, Hannah Brock, Brett Coleman, Alexis Gronow, Nelson and Nathan Hull, Amy Lucas, Brienna Scheidler, Lucy Thomas, Makenna Usher, Emily Wilson, and Isabella Woodby).
The show is co-directed by Sherry Randall and Ann O’Reilly, music director Marci Johnson, choreographer Maria Usher, and assistant choreographer Rachel Tobey; produced by Karla Tobey, and assistant Jenny Bloom. Behind the curtains are stage manager Lynda Bednarczyk and assistant Ben Breneman.
