About Disney's The Little Mermaid

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."

Ariel, a mermaid and King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her friends Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

Disney's The Little Mermaid is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.

About Theatre Guild

Inspirational message from Theatre Guild

Theatre Guild is one of the oldest and largest extra-curricular activities at Central. The Theatre Guild stages two productions each school year - a fall play and a spring musical. Students of all experiences, backgrounds, and grade levels are welcomed to be involved in the shows. 

Members may participate as part of the cast or working backstage as part of the crew. Auditions are held near the beginning of each semester for those that wish to participate on stage. For those students who wish to participate as part of the crew, there are a variety of roles including: 

  • hair & makeup, 
  • set design and construction, 
  • lighting and sound, and
  • hospitality.
