Dempsey’s production of The Little Mermaid is sure to be Fin-Tastic!

Opening night of Dempsey Middle School’s The Little Mermaid Jr. musical is well on it’s way! Opening night is Friday, November 8th at 7:00pm at Hayes High School. Other showtimes include Saturday, November 9th at 2:00 and 7:00pm, and a meet-and-greet of the characters that same day at 1pm. Admission to the musical is $10 for adults and $8 for students.

The musical is definitely bound to be a “crowd pleaser for sure!” said director Jennifer Ruhlen. “If you love the movie, you will adore this show! These students have put in A LOT of work and are so excited to share it with Delaware!”Ruhlen has directed a variety of musicals and shows over the past 10 years and this is her second year directing the Dempsey musical. Ruhlen is also a music teacher at both Conger and Carlisle elementary school.

The students involved in the musical are very talented, hardworking, and involved. “I’m in art club, i’m in Dempsey Singers, and i’m in newspaper” said Bella Bosco, who plays Ursula in the musical. Bella has been in other musicals such as Mulan as Grandmother Fa and 101 Dalmations. Bella had some great things to say about the songs in the musical! Her favorites are “She’s in love and Kiss The Girl because they’re very catchy and I can’t them out of my head for like the whole school day.”

8th grader Griffin Clark, who plays Sebastian, is also very active in extracurriculars and in the show. “I do cross country in the fall…I got 12:41 for my pr! (personal record)” said Griffin. Griffin is also in Dempsey Singers and in the orchestra as a violinist. Griffin has been in Alice in Wonderland, Mulan, and Once upon a Mattress. He also said that “Under the Sea is very peppy” and believes that the audience will enjoy that particular song very much.

There’s also student Brooklyn Claffey who plays Scuttle. When asked about her favorite character, she answered with “Ursula.” “She’s very loud and she’s a pretty cool character…her costume is very awesome!”One of the exciting things about the musical will be the twist in the ending. “The way Ursula dies is not what it is in the movie” shared Brooklyn.

Speaking of surprises, Ruhlen also shared how the song Human Stuff “is a new song and introduces us to some wacky seagulls that are going to be a crowd favorite as well!”However, every element of the show will speak for itself. “The costumes, lighting, sets, and props all have a tremendous effect on the success of the show” said Ruhlen.

Don’t miss out on the meet-and-greet either! Admission for this event “is free as long as they bring their show tickets. They’ll be able to meet the characters, take pictures with them, and get autographs” shared Ruhlen. The students are also excited for the meet-and-greet as well! Griffin thinks “that’ll be really cool I think [the audience] is going to enjoy that a lot.”

Come and out and show your support for these dedicated students! “From the chorus to the role of Ariel, each student has brought their own level of ability and special talents” shared Rhulen. You’ll be sure to enjoy this fun-filled musical with catchy songs and a breath-taking twist at the end!
