Three young ladies from Georgetown are having a ton of fun spooking the sold-out crowds at The Little Mermaid Jr. Shaelyn Girvan, a Grade 9 Christ the King student, delivers a powerful performance as the devious sea witch Ursula.
“I really like playing villians. You can put so much into them,” says Shaelyn who has been acting in musicals since the age of three and is enjoying tapping into her “evil side” for this role.
“Little Mermaid is my favourite Disney movie. I love the characters and how elaborate they are. And I’ve always really liked how sassy, slinky, and slimy Ursula is,” she says.
