— Fish swim in schools and last week’s big catch was Washington Episcopal School’s production of “Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.” which was performed by 28 members of the sixth-grade in two casts.

The 60-minute musical, designed for middle-school aged performers, is based on the 2008 Broadway production and the 1989 animated feature film. The cast was led by Performing Arts Director Ron Valenzia. Grade 5 provided choral support; each sported an colorful iridescent fish cap.

Washington Episcopal School is an independent, coeducational day school in Bethesda. For more information, visit www.w-e-s.org
