Summer Youth Theater Production

Lottery registration for our 2023 Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR. Theater Camp has closed.

This summer, journey with us on an amazing adventure under the sea in Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR.

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. From classic literature to the Academy Award-winning film and Broadway musical, Ariel’s undersea journey is a beautiful love story for the ages that will have your camper immersed in imagination! 

Campers entering 2nd grade through 10th grade next school year will learn through engaging theater games while they develop vocal and physical theater skills and techniques. Our Summer Youth Theater experience culminates in the unique and privileged opportunity to perform Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR. live on stage at the famous, historical Mabel Tainter Theater!

Camp Dates: 

  • July 17 – August 6, 2023 
  • Monday through Thursday, 9am – 4pm 
  • Dress rehearsal and performances August 4-6, 2023

The cost of the three-week camp experience is $275. Limited scholarships are available (please contact us PRIOR to registration for more information).

Registration will be limited to allow for more stage time, more personal attention, and an overall unforgettably wonderful experience! Historically, this camp fills up very quickly. In the hopes of ensuring a more hassle free registration experience, this year’s theater camp registration will be through a lottery process. The lottery application window will open Thursday, March 2nd at 10am and close Sunday, March 5th at 11:59pm. Additionally, the MTG office will be open for applications from 11:30am-3:30pm on March 2, to accommodate those who do not have internet access.
