Our Youth Theatre Company is open to students in grades 7-12. Students do not need previous experience in order to participate in our theatre program. All students who enroll in our theatre company are cast in the production. 

The Youth Theatre Company performs full-length productions during the school year that range from classical musicals like Rodgers & Hammerstein to more contemporary shows. Performances are held at the ArcBest Performing Arts Center in downtown Fort Smith with full sets, lights, costumes, and everything else to give the production a true professional look.

Disney's The Little Mermaid

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. 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."

Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

Disney's The Little Mermaid offers a fantastic creative opportunity for rich costumes and sets, as well as the chance to perform some of the best-known songs from the past 30 years.
