Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater | Music by Alan Menken | Book by Doug Wright|Based on the Hans Christian Andersen Story and the Disney Film produced by Howard Ashman & John Musker and written & directed by John Musker and Ron Clements

Take a fantastical journey under the sea with Ariel, Sebastian, Flounder and Scuttle! In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave behind her ocean home — and her fins — and live in the world above the surface. But first, she must 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. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories, Disney's The Little Mermaid JR. is an enchanting tale about how far we’ll go for love and acceptance. Over three weeks, work as an ensemble to learn a wide range of theatrical skills and put together a full production of this adventurous, coming-of-age story.

By Matt Cox

Join us for a three-week Performance Academy production of Puffs (One Act for Young Wizards). For seven years, a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs...who just happened to be there, too. They may not have been destined to save the world, but they still have an exciting story to tell! In this magical wizarding comedy, performers gain experience in blocking and rehearsal practices while putting together a full, non-musical production. Performers develop their skills in acting, stage combat, improvisation and design, and create technical elements of this play — like set pieces, costumes and props — from scratch.
