SPOTSWOOD, NJ - If weekend plans are up in the air, the Immaculate Conception School Theater Group will be heading under the sea with a two-night performance of "Little Mermaid Jr." The Disney musical features fourth through eighth grade students at the pre-kindergarten through eighth grade school.

The ICS Theater Group have been working hard for months to learn their lines and songs for this weekend’s performances," said Immaculate Conception parent and secretary for the school's advisory council Jennifer Alexander. "In addition to the hard work of our actors, our student-run crew has also been working hard to learn about costuming, curtain function, props, lighting, microphones and moving sets."

The curtain goes up on the opening night on Friday, April 13 at 7 p.m. at the Immaculate Conception School Cafeteria with an additional performance on Saturday, April 14 at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door.

"While in previous years our students have worked to create the sets, this year we had a generous surprise," Alexander continued. "One of our parents and her company, BB Props in Little Falls, have donated the beautiful and professional set and props for use during our show. This, in addition to the hard work of our students, has really made Ariel’s world come to life!"
