Parsons Theatre on Aug. 12 at 3 and 7 p.m.
Audiences of all ages will get a fresh look at an age-old favorite when the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) and more than 60 local students present THE LITTLE MERMAID. Deep in the salty waters of the Sassafras Sea, there lived a Little Mermaid. Her name was Celia. She lived for music. In fact, it was said that she had the loveliest scales in all of the Deep. Celia and her three sisters were allowed one visit to the World Above, each on their sixteenth birthday, to learn the secrets of life on dry land. Their discoveries included ferocious dragons, advancing armies and, of course, a handsome and resourceful Prince Charming. In a new version of the age-old tale, lots of music, plot surprises and humor await the audience.
