‘‘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.
