About 30 students from Queen Creek’s Newell Barney Middle School will perform two shows of the hour-long musical production “The Little Mermaid Jr.” – one at noon and the other at 5 p.m. – Saturday, April 15, at the Queen Creek Performing Arts Center, 22149 E. Ocotillo Road.

Admission is free, with donations of cash and checks accepted at the door. The cast contains sixth- through eighth-grade students led by co-directors Briton Clark and Stephanie Marley, musical director James Hutchins and choreographer Peyton Clark.

“The cast members have been putting in a lot of rehearsal time and have been doing a great job,” Clark said. “They have given up their free time and dedicated the last two and a half months to this production and have exceeded all expectations.”

Cast members, pictured during a rehearsal, include, Abbey Hall, left; Elaina Mundschau, front right; and back row from left, Emily Sorich, Leslie Gonzalez, Belle Zuchowski, Hailey Mathis, Megan Swan and Harley Rogers.
