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,

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!
