Today, Sunday, last chance to see children’s play

Cast A, the younger of the two casts of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” will present its final show 2 p.m. today (Aug. 25) at the Harbor Performing Arts Center in the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center.

Two shows remain for Cast B, which is comprised of older children. Shows will be at 7 p.m. today and 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 26.

The hour-long abridged junior version is based on the 1989 animated feature film and the 2008 Broadway production. The 35 actors and actresses were split between two casts so that Director Dori Blodgett could best use  their talents.

In the play, Ariel (Cast A, Breezy Harvey and Cast B, Michaela George), the mermaid princess, longs to join the human world. Along with her best fish friend Flounder (Cecilia Lynn and Dylan Speir), she collects human artifacts and goes to the surface of the ocean to visit the seagull Scuttle (Ashanti Franks and Alia Graves), who offers wildly inaccurate information about humans.
