Bewitching performance… Janayah Wadsworth as Ursula the sea witch.

TGS Performing Arts rose to great heights and swam to great depths with the 2019 school show, Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Four shows were staged over three days at The Bruce Mason Centre.

Colourful cast… The Little Mermaid actors played to packed houses

A highlight was the sold-out matinee with primary schools. The 1100 students and their teachers enjoyed a pre-show performance of Baby Shark, and an impromptu singalong to Let It Go. The children were in the palm of the production’s hand following The Little Mermaid with energy and focus.
