Clint Dougherty (Sebastian) stole the show with his impressive pipes in “Under the Sea.”

The Liberty Theatre was packed with over 400 people this weekend as folks from all over came to witness the magical production of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”. Magical is the perfect word to describe this play. The crowd is guaranteed to leave in awe at the breathtaking talent of our local youth and adult performers, as well as the costumes and props which really make you feel like you are under the sea.
Starring Josie Watkins as Ariel, this performance takes you through the journey of a young mermaid who longs to live up on the shore with her prince. Along the way she encounters the wicked Sea Witch and her sly eel sidekicks. With the help of her witty and worrisome friend, Sebastian, and her loving yet loudmouth friend, Flounder, Ariel might just see her dream come true.
If you missed this weekend, don’t worry. After a few days of rest, the cast will be back at it starting Friday night at 7. If you think you’ve seen The Little Mermaid, you’ve never seen it like this. Along with all the classics like “Kiss the Girl,” “Part of Your World” and “Under the Sea,” this special remake is full of new songs and powerful solos. Directed by Devon Sons, The Little Mermaid cast is full of new and well-known faces to the community theatre and is a must-see for all! The past productions have been sold out, so contact The Liberty Theatre to reserve your tickets. Since seating is general admission, it is wise to arrive early to find the best seat.
