(LINCROFT, NJ) -- The Premier Theatre Company in association with Pegasus Theater, NJ, an educational partnership with the alumni theatrical program of Christian Brothers Academy, present Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Performances take place June 15, 16, 22, 23 at 8:00pm, June 17 and 24 at 2:00pm in the Henderson Theater in Lincroft.
Take a stroll down memory lane as Premier and Pegasus bring one of the most beloved, classic Disney films to life, live on stage! The Little Mermaid was originally produced by Disney Theatrical Productions and is based on the Han's Christian Anderson story and the Disney film produced by Howard Ashman & John Musker and written & directed by John Musker & Ron Clements. Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, Book by Doug Wright.
The partnership with Christian Brothers Academy, now in it’s second season, provides students the opportunity to learn about various aspects of producing theater by working with Premier in a hands on approach.
“We couldn’t be more excited about about this partnership,” says Marcos Orozco, Director of Pegasus and CBA alumnus. “At Christian Brothers Academy, we strive to be a student run organization where students are responsible for everything from construction to design to PR and more. We can now provide our students an internship-like experience over the summer where they will learn the skills needed to fully take over during the school year and bring our program to the next level.”
Premier President John Sabatos adds, “Premier is thrilled to be able to continue to reinforce their commitment to education with this on going partnership. By giving students the chance to work with both theater and education professionals, we hope to not only share our skills and knowledge, but having the pleasure of working as a community to advance the living arts”.
