ACTS student production chosen and at work for “The Little Mermaid”


Archbishop Carroll Theatre Society announced the student production staff for the spring show “The Little Mermaid.” 

The staff includes various student-led positions that allow for more student help and engagement during the show’s production. 

  • The assistant directors are Immacolata Capone, Sofia Cunicelli, Rachel Durham and Kirstin Blake McGarvey. 
  • The student choreographers are Annalisa Laphen, Rachel Durham and Madison Mitchell. 
  • The costume designers are Immacolata Capone, Kadie Kutlus, Brianna Petruccelli, Luciana Perez, Grace Rafferty, Alexis Faso, Amanda Valentin and Kirstin Blake McGarvey
  • The hair and makeup designers are Kadie Kutlus, Sophia Burghezi, Kirstin Blake McGarvey and Grace Rafferty. 
  • The prop designers are Immacolata Capone, Kadie Kutlus, Shannon McGee, Brianna Petruccelli, Luciana Perez and Kirstin Blake McGarvey. 
  • The sound designer is Rameer Woods. 
  • The stage managers are Shannon McGee and Aja Green. 
  • The social media team is John Doherty, Immacolata Capone and Sophia Burghezi. 
  • The lighting designer is Shannon McGee. 
  • The assistant master carpenter Shannon McGee. 

The staff production responsibilities have already started as cast and crew practices have begun.

Some of the responsibilities carry out into the opening of the show itself. 

“It’s almost a given that I apply for the lighting designer position, as I have been working with them for years now,” said junior Rameer Woods. “It’s really fun, but stressful. I am up at the top of the booth during the shows. If the lights don’t work, it’s on me.” 

A form was sent out in early January for interested students to apply for any roles listed, or apply to create a new role for the show. Students can hold as many positions as they want. Students who are not in the cast, crew or pit can also be a part of the production staff.

“I am so excited to be designing Scuttle during my senior year,” said senior Brianna Petruccelli. “Being able to design the costumes has been such a cool experience!” 

“The Little Mermaid” will be open for two weekends. The first weekend is April 19, 20 and 21. The second weekend is April 25, 26 and 27.  

“The show is really coming along,” said senior Madison Mitchell. “The installation of the staff productions is just another big step into the making and competition of the show. It’s super exciting.”
