Stockport Grammar School’s Junior School’s ambitious Year 6 musical production, Disney’s The Little Mermaid was a huge success, playing to sell-out audiences on the Senior School’s main stage over two nights. Featuring a large cast, colourful costumes and famous songs like Under the Sea and Part of Your World, the show is adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production and tells the tale of young mermaid Ariel, and her quest to leave her ocean home to be with Prince Eric.
The enchanting voice of Holly Buckley as Ariel, Callum Barton’s comedic portrayal of Sebastian and Caitlin Cutt’s accomplished performance as Flounder stood out alongside great performances from all the other children in the cast. This year group were the first cohort of Nursery pupils at SGS and Nursery Manager Carla Peake was in the audience: “What a fantastic production! I’m so proud of the girls and boys – of what they have achieved and how they have grown up. They were all wonderful in this show – a delight to watch”.
