Colorful sea creatures, sinister spies, zany chefs, a wise-cracking Jamaican crab, enchanting Merfolk, loveable best friends, an evil sea witch, a handsome prince and a beautiful young girl with a big dream — it must be “The Little Mermaid!”

The Da Vinci Academy Drama team has created its musical production of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Jr.”

“The Little Mermaid Jr.” will be performed at Johnson High School Performing Arts Center, 3305 Poplar Springs Road, in Gainesville. Showtimes are 7 p.m. Friday, May 3; 7 p.m. Saturday, May 4; and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 5.

Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults. Tickets will be available at the door or in advance at The Da Vinci Academy front office.

“Our students play the roles in the musicals, but they also take on everything from costume design, to set construction, to tech crew, to choreography and stage management,” said teacher and co-director Teresa Haymore. “Every year, we are blown away at the professionalism and quality of our musical productions.”
