Norman, Okla. – More than 60 third to seventh grade students of The Studio of The Sooner Theatre will present Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr., the first of two full-scale school year productions starring students, February 1-3, 2013.
The cast includes 8-13 yr. old students, who come from all reaches of the south metro, including Moore, Norman and South Oklahoma City.
“I am very excited about this show! Disney just released the rights to do it late last year, so we have been waiting patiently.” Said Jennifer Baker, Sooner Theatre Executive Director. “It’s so fun to see what our small performers do with the material we give them, and this show is going to be great!”
Show times and dates are:
Friday, February 1, 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, February 2, at 2 and 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, February 3, at 2 p.m.
Some principle roles are double cast.
“Many times, youth productions are very limited on what they do technically in shows, but these performers work with professional set and lighting designers, sound engineers and costumers, so they get to experience a very professional production,” said Baker.
