Edison Intermediate School proudly presents this year’s musical, The Little Mermaid, Junior. Based on the Disney movie, the show includes a cast and crew of over one hundred talented students, under the direction of public speaking and drama teacher, Michael Altmann.
Ariel, a mermaid princess, is dissatisfied with life under the sea and curious about the human world. Along with her best fish friend, Flounder, Ariel collects human artifacts and goes to the surface of the ocean to visit Scuttle, the seagull, who offers very inaccurate knowledge of human culture. Longing to join the human world and become human herself, Ariel ignores the warnings of her father, King Triton and his adviser, Sebastian, that contact between merpeople and humans is forbidden. She eventually finds herself in trouble with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and in love with Prince Eric.
