Thursday January 29th at 6:30PM at the Greenwood High School Performing Arts Center, the East Pointe Drama Club will take to the stage for the season’s presentation of the classic, The Little Mermaid. Admission is $3.00 for adults and $1.00 for students and children.

The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen is a beloved story of a little mermaid longing to be human.

With a grant from the Greenwood Education Foundation, East Pointe Drama Club auditioned over 90 Kindergarten through 5th grade students for the play.

Rylee Trice, a 5th grader in Mrs. Summer Martin’s class, enjoys seeing how happy everyone is when she performs. In the production of The Little Mermaid, you will see little jellyfish, adorable sea creatures, and comical humans.

“Since the beginning of the school year, over 80 students and dedicated staff volunteers have rehearsed tirelessly to provide a quality show,” says Mr. Mike Dean, East Pointe Elementary Principal. “It is exciting to see the awesome talent that we have here at East Pointe Elementary!”

The leading role of “Annabelle” is played by three cast members, Madison Yancey, Katelyn Smith and Annabelle Geiger.

Talk about talent! Drama Club members also play musical instruments such as the violin, piano, guitar, and drums. Also, many members take singing, gymnastic, and dance lessons.

East Pointe Drama Club is sponsored by Malynda Sayers, Third Grade Teacher. Volunteers include Stephanie Griffith, Literacy Specialist; Hilary Huneycutt, First Grade Teacher; Leslie Peresta, Music Teacher; Rick Clow, Gifted and Talented Teacher; April Norris, East Pointe Cafeteria; Jessica Cole, University of Arkansas – Fort Smith; and Natalie Mulvihill, East Hills Middle School.

Proceeds from the show benefit East Pointe Drama Club and “Pants for Pupils.”
