Our 11th Children's Summer Musical Production!
Have you ever wanted your chance to stand on a huge stage in front of a live audience and perform in a real musical theatre production? Well here’s your opportunity! 
The Play’s the Thing Productions proudly presents Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Jr.” our Eleventh Summer Musical Drama Camp performing at 
 Boeckman Middle School in Farmington
In a magical kingdom fathoms below, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to 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 Prince Eric that she’s the girl with the enchanting voice. 

Adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production, Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID JR. features the hit songs "Part of Your World," "She’s in Love," and 
the Oscar-winning "Under the Sea."
