Christian Youth Theater (CYT) Front Range performs Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr. Friday to Sunday, May 6 to 8, 2022, in Englewood. CYT is the largest after-school theater arts training program in the nation. Performers are ages 5 to 18. Tickets range from $13 to $15, if purchased in advance and are $17 at the door.
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories, the classic animated film, and adapted from the smash hit Broadway production, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr. is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. The “Junior” version is a 60-minute adaptation of the musical designed to be performed by youngsters.
Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs.
But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.
With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”
Performances are Friday, May 6 at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, May 7 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 8 at 3 p.m.
They are held in the theater at Colorado’s Finest School of Choice, 300 W. Chenango Ave, Englewood.
