Students at Ozone Park’s St. Mary Gate of Heaven school performed their annual school show last weekend. This year’s performance was “The Little Mermaid Jr.,” featuring an all child cast of the 1989 Disney classic.
The show starred Genesis Barreto as Ariel, Tiffany Vega as Ursula, Sebastian Perez as Sebastian and Jordan Molina as Flounder.
The show was produced by Frank Gulluscio, who has been producing Gate of Heaven school shows for over 30 years. SMGH alumnus Vincent Napolitano directed with fellow alumni Melissa Planty and Gina Scotto choreographing and state managing respectively. Costumes were made by Anna Murray and the set was designed by Roe Miller.
This year, the students sang all of the songs live; in past years, most of the performances were lip-synched.
