Kiss the girl
  1/5 Next Image
A magic moment from the 1989 animated film gets a youthful rekindling in Denton Community Theatre’s Theatre School summer musical, “Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.” Will Eric guess Ariel’s name? Everything from the reeds to a little crab named Sebastian whispers romance to the boy. Ariel can’t help. She’s given her voice to Ursula the Sea Witch as collateral. To get it back, she has to snag Eric’s kiss. The stage version also brings back Triton, the king of the sea, and Ariel’s fish friend Flounder. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Campus Theatre, 214 W. Hickory St. Tickets cost $10 and seating is general admission. The show is staged by 30 campers taking part in the school’s summer program. Directed by John Evarts, with costumes by Nelda Evarts, voice direction by Betsy Jilka and choreography by Anne Black-Scalf. For reservations, call 940-382-1915 or visit
