AVON/AVON LAKE – Lorain Community Music Theater (LCMT) is celebrating its 40th anniversary year with a production of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” July 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m. and July 16 and 23 at 2 p.m.

Performances will all take place at the Lorain Performing Arts Center, which is part of the new Lorain High School (2600 Ashland Ave., Lorain).

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless tale, this production of “The Little Mermaid” is described by LCMT as “a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages.”

The well-known story is the same: “Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above and bargains 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.”

While the storyline is familiar, there are always new faces in any production. This one includes quite a few Avon and Avon Lake residents.

An “Under the Sea Festival” will take place before both matinees from 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m. with entertainment for kids.

Tickets are on sale now at loraincommunitymusictheater.org/buy-tickets.
