The St Leonard’s Hart Theatre Company ended the 2017 season on a high note with the Year 5/6 Musical The Little Mermaid Jr. Over four nights between 22 November and 25 November, the TC Woolhouse Theatre was transformed into an undersea garden filled with colour and light! Each member of our youngest troupe put their best fin forward and worked with focus and joy to bring the story to life. With a minimalistic and evocative set, the show provided a backdrop to our young actors that gave them the opportunity to showcase their remarkable talents. With fun and energetic dance numbers put together by the choreographer, ex-student Sarah White, lush harmonies held firmly in hand by Musical Director John Oien and sumptuous costumes by the incomparable Jillian Wilson the show was a visual and aural treat!
The two year 8 musicians Justin Lee and James Owen fleshed out the “Hot Crustacean Band” and anchored the musical numbers with their sensational percussion playing. Sold out a month before opening, The Little Mermaid showed, once again, the Hart Theatre Company dedication to bringing its audiences theatre of outstanding quality at every age level.
