Merna caught the performance bug when he was six years old, doing local community theater in his hometown with a production of “Seussical the Musical.”
At the age of eight, he began to work professionally and has appeared in the off-Broadway productions of “Afterlight,” “Shine,” and “Displaced Wedding,” where he was featured in a moving performance of a family in the Holocaust. After catching the eye of a “Mary Poppins” producer, he was cast as Michael Banks and joined the first national tour of the production for a year followed by a Broadway run with the iconic musical.
