The Oak Bluffs School is going to the sea for its annual fall musical with a production of The Little Mermaid. Showtimes are tonight, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 18 at 2 p.m., all at the Oak Bluffs School.
Seventh-grader Angela Hayes stars as the mermaid Ariel, James Robinson plays the human Prince Eric, and Liam Weiland is the crab Sebastian. Brother and sister Tripp and Danielle Hopkins call on their inner nastiness to play the Triton King of the merfolk and Ursula the evil Sea Witch. The cast also includes some 50 other young student actors ranging from second to eighth grade.
The show is directed by Shelagh Hackett with musical direction by Brian Weiland.
