Fall is here and that means another production by Mount Vernon Community Children’s Theatre (MVCCT)! This local theatre group puts on entertaining shows for all ages a few times each year. One unique aspect is that it features all-student casts for each show with children from area schools, so attending a performance is a great way to support not just local arts but budding actors.
Its next production is Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” November 11-20, 2016, in Alexandria. Guests will enjoy a fabulous adventure “under the sea” with the story of Disney’s most beloved princesses. Forty-five exceptionally talented area youth star in this musical interpretation of the animated feature.
Nyree Martinez directs this presentation of evil Ursula’s attempts to steal her niece Ariel’s voice and control the underwater realm comes to dazzling and colorful life. Musical director Amy Conley leads the cast through rich harmonies in classic songs such as “Kiss the Girl” and “Under the Sea” as well a several numbers unique to the stage play.
