Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr. August 18-17

Children's Musical Theaterworks, Fresno’s premier children’s theater company, is pleased to announce the opening of Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr. at the Veteran's Memorial Auditorium August 8 -17. Once again, CMT will offer $10.00 tickets for children aged 12 and under.

The show, directed by Daniel Hernandez and based on Disney’s Broadway production, takes audiences on a journey to Ariel’s magic underwater kingdom, where the beautiful young mermaid 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.

Featuring performers ranging from the age of 13 to 18 and songs such as “Under the Sea”, “Part of Your World”, and “Kiss The Girl,” this show is sure to be a treat for the entire family.
