Disney’s The Little Mermaid, April 7 – 15
My name is Meghan Browning Phelps and I am the Theatre Director at Huntsville High School! I am thrilled to be at my alma mater leading the way in this upcoming 2016-2017 season. I hope that you will join us as we explore “The Magic of Books”, bringing three beautiful stories to life on stage through a variety of unique perspectives. My students and I will explore these tales through three different theatre genres though the year: Commedia dell’arte, Avant Gard, and of course, Musical Theatre.
We hope to see you at the theater!
