Little Mermaid Backup before removing excol
Director Michael Kelley’s Blake Middle High Summer Theatre Institute brought the Little Mermaid and her sisters, her dad King Triton, Sebastian, Flounder, Scuttle and company to Blake’s mainstage to cap off their four-week 2015 summer session. The Theatre Institute, one for middle high and one for high school students (browse the Legally Blonde photos after you’re finished here!) introduces budding and experienced actors and theatre technicians to a lot of the aspects of creating a show from set construction to singing, dancing and acting, to a taste of directing their own skit, to some improvisational comedy in front of the hundreds in the audience.
And there’s one seriously unpleasant sea witch, Ursula, who makes deals with unsuspecting people and then collects – and sings about – those poor unfortunate souls.
