Don’t miss the Patel Conservatory Theater production of The Little Mermaid, Jr. this weekend!

It’s theater for kids by kids! This entertaining Disney classic features a cast of more than 90 students, performing favorites such as Under the Sea, Part of Your World and Kiss the Girl.

The production is a culmination of a three-week theater intensive, in which students worked on theater, dance and vocal skills. Last week, they were able to work with guest instructor Quentin Earl Darrington, of Broadway's Ragtime.

The show is co-directed by Ami Sallee and Audrey Siegler, with music direction by Allison Novak and choreography by Susan Downey.

It’s an event full of music, dancing and fun with your favorite Disney characters!

Little ones can come early dressed as their favorite “under the sea” character and enjoy pre-show activities.

Starting an hour before each show, kids can have their picture taken with a Mermaid, courtesty of YTEevents and SOHO images.

There’ll also be an instrumental petting zoo where kids can touch and experience a variety of instruments and see which ones they like best!

The show will be Fri., Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 10 at 2 p.m. in Ferguson Hall at the Straz Center. For tickets, click here, or call 813-229-7827.

Bring your friends and spread the word!
