After last year’s sell out season of Peter Pan, the Group has again secured the services of highly-regarded director Debbie Fraser. The mostly-local cast will play charters made famous in the Disney version of the tale, including mermaid Arial, Flounder and Sebastian the crab.
“Peter Pan far exceeded our expectations last year and we are sure The Little Mermaid will be just as successful,” said Fraser. “It also allows for a slighter bigger cast with more younger members.”
Edwina Royce, who last year played Wendy in Peter Pan, returns in the role of the Little Mermaid, Nieela.
Her dashing young Prince Frederick is Henry Stevenson, who recently played the title role of Shrek in the GSODA Junior Players production of the same name. Henry also played Oliver in the QLTG production back in 2012.
“Both of these two actors are quite experienced and bring a high energy to the show,” Fraser said.
Chanelle Tait, last seen in Dinkum Assorted, brings over 10 years experience to the role of Sea Witch.
Performances at Queenscliff Uniting Churchrun from January 14 to 20. Booking information if available online or from the Visitor Information Centre.
