Go Under the Sea with Little Mermaid this Summer and her aquatic friends in Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR., adapted from Disney’s Broadway production and the motion picture (featuring the enormously popular Academy Award-winning music and delightfully charming book and lyrics). In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she’s the girl whose enchanting voice he’s been seeking.
This full-scale musical is a children’s performance journey where kids will learn what it takes to rehearse music, lines and more in order to perform in their own production at the end of the program. There will be exposure to the “behind the scenes” aspects of theater, including prop, costume and set design, as well as overall production responsibilities. In addition to rehearsal, participants will play acting games, develop improvisation skills and generally become more comfortable performing onstage.
