‘The Little Mermaid’
The Marilyn Rodman Performing Arts Center’s Inspiration Performing Arts Company will be putting on a production of “The Little Mermaid.” The company is comprised of students who enroll in the theater’s week-long summer day program. With the production, students learn about theater basics and terminology, play drama games, learn about sets, costumes, props, and theater tech and rehearse and perform a full production at the end of the week. This session is geared for performers who are still new to performing and performers who may require some extra help from volunteers and assistants. The performance will take place at 1 p.m. for friends and family. A performance for the general public is at 7 p.m. General admission tickets on sale for $5. Parking and dining information available at www.orpheum.org. Contact the MRPAC box office at 508-543-ARTS (2787) or email@example.com for member and group discount packages.
