Part of Our World – A Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Little Mermaid Spring Musical

Since January, the Menchville Players have been hard at work rehearsing and preparing for their 2019 spring musical: The Little Mermaid. However, there’s much more to making a musical than just memorizing lines and music cues. Under the direction of beloved drama teacher Courtney Rice, and with the help of the theatre classes and dedicated stage crew, the drama department has created magnificent set pieces and costumes for this year’s show.

Building the sets and costumes for a show this spectacular is a long and intense process, but the Menchville Players are up for the challenge. Many of the students have sacrificed their Saturdays to come in and work.
