posted Nov 3, 2017, 9:24 AM by North Judson-Wayne Township Public Library   [ updated Nov 3, 2017, 9:26 AM ]

The Little Mermaid is a stage musical produced by Disney Theatrical, based on the animated 1989 Disney film and classic story of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen about a mermaid who dreams of the world above the sea and gives up her voice to find love. In this beguiling animated romp, rebellious 16-year-old mermaid Ariel is fascinated with life on land. On one of her visits to the surface, which are forbidden by her controlling father, King Triton, she falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love, Ariel makes a dangerous deal with the sea witch Ursula to become human for three days. But when plans go awry for the star-crossed lovers, the king must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter. 

Tony and Academy Award winner Alan Menken wrote the music for both the film and musical. "Under the Sea," "The World Above," and "Kiss the Girl" are new musical theatre classics.

Delphi Opera House, 109 S Washington St, Delphi, Indiana 46923

When Leo Tannenbaum appears from nowhere on December 23rd, things begin to change around the Holly Railway Station. A long defunct radio springs to life, the local carolers suddenly sound like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and everyone seems to be filled with an unusual Christmas spirit. This nostalgic theatrical greeting card is filled with eccentric small town characters and punctuated with memorable moments.

11/24 to 12/10/2017 A Christmas Story, The Musical

posted Nov 2, 2017, 10:22 AM by North Judson-Wayne Township Public Library

A beloved region favorite, A Christmas Story, The Musical, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas.

Set in the 1940's in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, it follows 9-year old Ralphie and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts--an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here. Ralphie's friend, Flick, getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, getting dressed in his snowsuit and the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit and the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others.

A Christmas Story, The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven't.

HOLIDAY FAVORITE: Bring the entire family to be part of a holiday tradition at CST with this faithful adaptation of the film classic featuring the legendary Jimmy Stewart.
