Hendricks Civic Theatre presents youth musical 'The Little Mermaid JR.'

A hundred children, mainly from Hendricks County, will be "under the sea" as they take part in Disney's "The Little Mermaid JR.," a youth musical presented by Hendricks Civic Theatre, Feb. 22-24 and March 1-3 at the Saint Malachy Catholic Church auditorium, 326 N. Green St., Brownsburg.

Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Sunday shows are at 3 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase at the door with first-come, first-served general seating. No reservations will be taken. Tickets are $14 for adults (ages 19-61) and $12 for seniors (62 and older) and youth (18 and younger). Group discounts are available. For more information or for group tickets, call 252-9626 or visit www.hendrickscivic.com.

The children in the cast range in age from 4 to 18 and will portray the Disney characters of Arial, Prince Eric, Flounder, Sebastian, Scuttle, King Triton, Chef Louis, Ursula, Princesses, and Mersisters, just to name a few.

"The talent of these young people is truly amazing," said Bob Jessen, director for "The Little Mermaid JR." "We were astounded at the number of youth that auditioned. We double-casted the main roles so we could allow twice as many youth the opportunity to be part of live musical theatre."

Alexandria Adkins, who will portray one of the Ariels, said, "I want the community to know that this show is so much fun and enjoyable. It's true, there's nothing like being 'under the sea' - though life on land isn't half bad either!"

With the creation of two casts for the main roles, each person portraying a main character in the musical will perform in at least three shows. Many of the youth will perform in all six shows and will portray several characters.

For some of the youth, this is their first live theatre experience. For other community or school theater veterans, their passion for performing continues to give them a thrill.
