2023 Junior Main Stage Musical Program

Registration opens MONDAY JULY 31 at 10:00 AM

Our Junior Main Stage Musical program is for youth ages 8-12 (grades 3-7). The goal of the Junior Main Stage Musical Program is to introduce the skills required for putting on a production. These include skills such as basic staging and movement, understanding and creating a character, singing in a group, and introductory dance & choreography. We begin our Junior Program with a few basic performance workshops to get the children comfortable with each other and the instructors. Following our workshops, all participants audition for a role in the production and rehearsals begin! The program culminates with performances on The Palace Theatre’s main stage in December.

The Show


Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR.
Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman & Glenn Slater
Book by Doug Wright, Music Adapted and Arranged by David Weinstein
Based on the Hand Christian Andersen story and the Disney film

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.
