Amy Fenicle


Amy Fenicle reprises role of Ariel’s confidant and companion, Flounder, in Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre’s production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, a role she played for Prather Entertainment in 2022 at its Dutch Apple venue in Pennsylvania. Flounder is not only Ariel’s bestie, she has a crush on her as well. Even though Ariel chooses Prince Eric over her, Flounder remains loyal to Ariel to the end and delivers the poignant, show-stopping Scene 6 Act One solo “She’s in Love” with back-up from Ariel’s Mersisters.

Fenicle began dancing at an early age, but it wasn’t until she ventured into community theater that she fell in love with acting. “Once I found out that I could sing, dance, and act all at the same time, I was hooked,” Amy shares. Since graduating college, she has work at regional theaters across the country, as her extensive and impressive resume belies.
