“We have been working on some of the scenes since November and can’t wait to bring this classic story to life,” senior Amanda David, who plays Ariel, and serves as a student director, said.
Fellow senior Julia Phillips, who plays Sebastian, and serves as a student director, agrees, “There are a lot of scenes in the show that are not in the movie. One of my favorites is the scene with Chef Louis. I get to do a chase sequence in that one!”
Junior Nathan Conway is also excited for the performance. He will play the role of Prince Eric and serves as a student director. “I really got to explore my character this year,” Nate said. “I even learned how to waltz.”
