Parkway students to perform Little Mermaid musical
by Staff Reports
The performers, who range from first-graders to eighth-graders, have been rehearsing since January for the annual musical, during chorus classes and after school, sand Wanda Nickel, a longtime volunteer with the production.
Parkway and Mabel chorus teacher Sondra Edwards, who is retiring this year, has worked with the students extensively during class and also has led rehearsals twice a week after school, Nickel said.
Other volunteers and teachers, including David Davis and Jennifer Ritter, have been heavily involved in set design, she said.
The cast includes Hannah Taylor as Ariel, David King as Prince Eric, Thomas Wilson as Sebastian, William Maupin as Scuttle and Eliza Eason as Ursula.
The production will be performed at 7:30 p.m. May 10 and May 11 at the Harvest House, located on Boone Heights Drive next to the Boone Bowling Center.
Tickets are $5 and will be offered at the Parkway School office. To find out about the availability of tickets, call Alison Idol at (828) 264-7001.
