The Little Mermaid Jr.

On February 10th, 11th, and 12th, Island Trees Memorial Middle School

preformed a play called the “Little Mermaid Jr.” The in school plays were on

Tuesday, February 10th and Thursday, February 12th and they performed it

for the 5th and 6th grade. Island Trees had such a talented group of

students that they had double casts for the parts of Ariel, Ursula, and

Prince Eric. The following students listed had main parts in the play.

 Ariel: Jessie Najdek & Madison Tierney, King Triton: Tim Gunderson,

Prince Eric: Russell Macias & James Fazio, Ursula: Faith Bentivegna &

Marisa Giammanco, Sebastian: Ricky Trezza, Grimsby: Mike Manfra,

Scuttle: Kellyann Lettis, Flounder: Joe Carruba, Flotsam: Molly Johnston,

Jetsam: Becky Johnston, Pilot: Thomas Koenig, Carolotta: Victoria Lavelle,

Chef Louis: Sam Barcia, Allana: Sarah Agosta, Aquata: Jessica Avery,

Adella: Lauren Kennedy, Arista: Rebecca Gersbeck, Andrina: Alexa

Marmolejo, Atina: Megan Dufresne, Seahorse: Alyssa Usuriello, Gull #1:

Logan Sobolow, Gull #2: Nadia Othman, Gull #3: Emma Rochanakit,

Princess #1: Megan Clifford, Princess #2: Kelly Butler, Princess #3: Jojo

Arana, Princess #4: Brianna Fitzgerald, Princess #5: Kayla Creighton,

Princess #6: Jenna Jekins.

 The Ensemble was such a big group that unfortunately I can’t list

everyones name. The Ensemble were sailors, princesses, merfolk, sea

creatures, chefs, and lagoon animals. Unfortunately, Madison Tierney was

ill and she could not perform. Everyone hopes that she feels better. The

Little Mermaid Jr. had fabulous actors and actresses and it was performed

so well that it could of been on Broadway! I can’t wait to see what they

come up with next year!
