Southmoreland musical “The Little Mermaid” rehearsed during the school day on Wednesday in preparation for opening night. Students from the Primary Center acted as their audience and were able to have a small meet and greet with some of the main characters.
“I’m thrilled to have everyone experience what we have been putting together for months,” said senior Cole Leasher, who is playing the role of Sebastian.
The cast performed the musical for four performances over the weekend.
Throughout the rehearsal, some outside high school students were able to stop in and watch a sneak peek of the show. What they would see is the blossoming story of a curious mermaid longing to live life on land. They rehearsed on stage in full costume and a complete set.
Many cast members expressed their genuine excitement to share what they had been working on for so long with the community.
“It’s really nice to see all of our hard work pay off,” said junior Joselyn Busato, who is playing Arista, a mersister. “It’s awesome to spend time with a great group of people.”
The chemistry between the characters not only developed outside of the show, but was visible on stage as well. Passion and commitment to their characters can be honorably noted.
Student director Colin Sherbondy sais he was impressed with the work ethic of the cast and crew throughout the past few months.
“There have been instances when students have had to stay overtime to practice, and that says a lot about the group of people we were working with,” Sherbondy said. “We are confident and excited to put on this show. Overall, it has been a wonderful experience.”
