This weekend we went to see Little Mermaid Jr. presented by Children's Musical Theaterworks (CMT) in Fresno. I had never seen a Jr. production of a show before, nor had I seen one of CMT's productions where the cast ranges in age from 13 to 18 (I have only seen their Underground shows), so I didn't know what the expect. What followed was a lovely evening with a show presented by some very talented kids.
“The Little Mermaid?” Oh, yeah. I remember that, the mermaid that wants to be with the human prince, with the singing crab under the sea, and the octopus lady, and…Wait! That was the Disney version! Visalia’s Enchanted Playhouse is presenting a musical a lot closer to the story that Hans Christian Andersen wrote in the 1800s.
