CYT Dives Under The Sea With Summer Show

The cast of Clayton Youth Theater is swimming along smoothly in preparation for their 2016 summer musical – Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

The talented gcytlittlemermaidroup of teenagers rehearses daily here at The Clayton Center, and from what we have been able to see and overhear, the community is in for a real treat.

The show is based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories as well as the classic animated film. 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.”

CYT will present Disney’s The Little Mermaid on Friday, July 29, at 7 PM; Saturday, July 30, at 2 PM; and Thursday, Friday and Saturday, August 4, 5 and 6, at 7 PM. Tickets – which are $12 for adults and $6 for students 18 and under – are on sale now online or through The Clayton Center Box Office. (Please note that NC state sales tax and fees will be added to all ticket sales.)
