Tickets are $7 for all ages, and children 5 and under are free. Tickets may be purchased at the door on performance days. Elementary School students will be provided with a complimentary free ticket but must be accompanied by an adult with a paid ticket.

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.

The set and lighting have been specially designed and crafted to create the magical effects of an undersea world, which will further add to the spectacular performances of the youth actors. Walt Disney’s “The Little Mermaid JR” is produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.

This show, which features the hit songs “Part of Your World,” and “She’s in Love,” and the Oscar-winning “Under the Sea,” is a surefire crowd-pleaser. Veteran director Laurie Zellers and musical director Shana Holliday have teamed with an enthusiastic and talented production staff to audition young actors and have rehearsed them since August in preparation for this extraordinary production.
