Stu­dents per­form The Lit­tle Mer­maid

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

KING’S Ju­nior Di­vi­sion pupils vis­ited the mag­i­cal world of Hans Chris­tian An­der­son in this year’s mu­si­cal The Lit­tle Mer­maid.

Young­sters from the school all got dressed up in colour­ful cos­tumes to help per­form the clas­sic story, which was also made into a hit Dis­ney film.

Maddy Holder starred in the pro­duc­tion as evil queen Ur­sula, Ben Piper was the friendly seag­ull Scut­tle, So­phie Scott was the mer­maid Ariel and Archie Abra­ham was lob­ster Se­bas­tian.

The play’s mu­si­cal direc­tor Alison Lea said: “Lit­tle Mer­maid is the story of Ariel, an ad­ven­tur­ous mer­maid who is fas­ci­nated by hu­mans.

“The chil­dren ap­peared in a va­ri­ety of guises: seag­ulls, courtiers, sailors and un­der­wa­ter crea­tures, and even cre­ated the ef­fect of a storm and a whirlpool with large scale chore­og­ra­phy.

“Both the Fence Av­enue hall stage and floor were used to give sep­a­rate per­for­mance ar­eas for dry land and un­der­wa­ter, which was very ef­fec­tive.”
