In the second row are Carly Daw as Flounder Cast A, Jacob Pleins as Sebastian Cast B, Jude Mulhern as the Pilot Cast A and Ava Burdell as Ursula Cast A.

The Penn Middle Drama Club will perform its spring musical, “The Little Mermaid Jr.,” at the Penn Middle School auditorium in Penn Township at 7 p.m. May 17 and 18 and at 1 and 7 p.m. May 19.

Because the drama club has more than 150 members in grades six through eight, the club was able to assemble two casts for the four performances.

The musical tells the classic Disney tale of mermaid Ariel, portrayed by Becca Mills and Cameron Powell, who longs to be part of the human world with Prince Eric, played by Nick Freilino and Owen Orlic.

The musical contains such classic songs as “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World,” and “She’s in Love,” and features sea creatures such as Sebastian, played by Jacob Pleins and Antonlina Damico, and Flounder, portrayed by Carly Daw and Lilly Willis.

Ariel faces the sea witch Ursula, played by Ava Burdell and Leah Kaczmarkiewicz, in her battle to become human.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
