Featuring more than 45 very talented young thespians ranging in age from third- through eighth- grade, the show promises to be one of the most extraordinary productions yet presented to Meeker audiences.

Founded in 2010, the Center Stage Youth company has annually presented the hit Broadway musical productions "Annie, JR," Walt Disney's "Cinderella, JR," "Seussical the Musical JR" and "Alice in Wonderland JR."

Adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production, audiences can journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel 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.
