From the street rat of Agrabah to a feisty princess from the swamp lands, local students are tackling intriguing roles in their school productions.
 
Folger McKinsey’s annual school play is “The Folger Four: Age of Mindstein.” It showcases the schemes of the evil Dr. Mindstein and The Folger Four’s attempt to thwart him. Mason Fleming will play Dr. Mindstein, Alyssa Kraus will play Neuron, Tori Wright will play Project Manager and Nathan Feinman will play Booster. Every year, the play is put on by fourth- and fifth-graders to highlight their acting, singing and dancing talents. “The Folger Four: Age of Mindstein” features musical numbers, acts of quirky heroism, dastardly deeds, exciting chase scenes and hilarious comedy. The production runs March 8, 9 and 10 at 7:00pm, and March 11 at 2:00pm at Woods Memorial Church in Severna Park. Tickets are $10 at the door and will be available for purchase starting February 16 at www.showtix4u.com.
 
St. John the Evangelist School is performing Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Jr.” The cast and crew are composed of the school’s sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students. Tickets will be available in March and will cost $8 on the web store and $10 at the door. There will be three performances of the play: March 23 at 7:00pm, March 24 at 7:00pm and March 25 at 2:00pm. For more information, visit www.stjohnpschool.org.
 
Severna Park Middle School is presenting “Once Upon a Mattress,” a retelling of “The Princess and the Pea.” The principal characters are Abbie Smith as Princess Winnifred, Henry Wright as Prince Dauntless, Parijita Bastola as Queen Aggravain, Grace Cavanagh as Wizard, Gus Bachmann as Sir Harry, Leslie Robinson as Lady Larkin and Ryan Koutras as the King. There will be three performances, the first being April 13 at 7:00pm. There are two performances on April 14 at 2:00pm and 7:00pm. The final performance is on April 15 at 2:00pm. Tickets will be available in late February at www.spmssings.org.
 
Windsor Farm Elementary has an upcoming production of “Aladdin Jr.” Every student who auditioned earned a spot in the show, but the audition process determined who would be cast in each role. To audition, students had to sing part of “A Whole New World” in a group of students and read a few lines from the play. Any students who wanted to be considered for a lead role had to sing a solo. The musical will run for about an hour, and only one of the two performances is open to the public. The plot of “Aladdin Jr.” is the same story told in Disney’s “Aladdin.” The lead roles are Andrew Luisi as Aladdin, Maggie McInerney as Jasmine, Cole German as Genie and Elena Durkin as Jafar. The performances will be held June 1 and 2.
