First-time Initial Stages performer Jared Leo says he’s enjoying being with other enthusiastic young actors.
Jared, 12, plays the head sailor and a fish in the theatre group’s performance of Disney’s The Little Mermaid Junior this Saturday at WestSide Performing Arts Centre.
‘‘It’s the first year I’ve been in an Initial Stages production and I like how everyone gets into their parts and are so enthusiastic,’’ he said.
Jacqui Monk directs the play, which features 45 cast members.
She said the cast had been rehearsing for three months and it was a chance for the budding performers to show off their talents.
‘‘It’s the perfect opportunity to see kids enjoying themselves doing something they love,’’ she said.
Ms Monk said audience members would recognise popular songs such as Kiss the Girl and Under the Sea.
Laura Frisardi, 11, plays Ariel and said she was looking forward to singing her solo, Part of Your World.
Moara Smith, 11, plays Scuttle, a seagull who is Ariel’s friend.
‘‘He’s really smart, but dumb at the same time,’’ she said.
‘‘He thinks he’s an expert on humans, but he’s really not.’’
Carol Davidson choreographed the play, with costumes designed by Correna Boardman.
The Little Mermaid Junior will be performed at 2pm and 7.30pm at WestSide Performing Arts Centre in Mooroopna on Saturday, June 28.
Tickets cost $19 for adults and $14 for children.
