Children’s Theatre to perform The Little Mermaid

By Lina Kelly

Thatcher, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Children’s Theatre group has grown in popularity so much that this spring’s offering, The Little Mermaid, will be performed a total of six times—by two different casts! Cast one will perform on Tuesday, April 30, and Thursday, May 2, at 7:30 p.m., and on Saturday, May 4, at 1 p.m.

Cast Two will take the stage on Wednesday, May 1, and Friday, May 3, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, May 4, at 5 p.m.

All performances will be held in the Activities Center-Lee Little Theatre. Admission is $3 per person.

Ariel, a fun-loving mermaid, is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friends, Flounder and Sebastian, at her side. But it will take all of her courage to make her dreams come true -- and save her father's kingdom from the sea witch Ursula! “The Little Mermaid is an inventive fantasy; it’s so creative and so much fun,” says the play’s director, Penny Whetten.
