Bring the whole family and go Under the Sea with StageKids as they present Disney's classic tale of a young mermaid and her adventures to find love on land.
Now you can be part of Ariel's world when Stage Kids WA, in partnership with the Numerica Performing Arts Center, and presenting sponsor, McQuaig and Welk, PLLC, present the musical, "The Little Mermaid Jr.," running Dec. 3-5.
Princess Ariel spots a human and falls in love. But not just any human -- a prince! The mermaid strikes a deal with a wicked sea-witch and leaves her ocean home for dry land.
Armed with a “dinglehopper” hairbrush, and with the help of her feathered and finned friends, Ariel follows her heart to win over the dashing Prince Eric.
The one-year-old youth theater program, Stage Kids WA, presents the musical version of the childhood story, based upon the 1989 animated Disney film. A youth cast of 52 actors from 19 local schools, will don more than 500 costume pieces to re-create the beloved tale.
“Working with this community of talented kids and their parents has been a joy,” says StageKids founder and show director, Michelle McCormick. “Together we've created a beautiful show and memories that will last a lifetime.”
Don't be the poor unfortunate soul to miss out on this one!
Tickets are available at www.numericapac.org — $15 for adults and $12 for children.
