Jefferson High School Theatre will transform its school stage into a deep-sea setting for the production of “The Little Mermaid.”

Based on the popular Disney musical, 30 teenagers will entertain more than 1,600 students from pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade March 19 and 20.

Public performances are at 7 p.m. March 20 and 21 at 575 Washington St., Jefferson.

Tickets may be purchased at the door for $5. The play will be around one hour.

Jefferson High School drama director Tammy Fisher said her student’s version of “The Little Mermaid” is a bit different. Students will use handcrafted puppets. In some cases, the puppets require two people to operate because of their size. The Ursula puppet is an extra special surprise, standing more than 11 feet tall.
