Variety's The Little Mermaid
Faculty, students and alum collaborate to bring Disney's The Little Mermaid to life at the Touhill Arts Center. Presented by Variety's Children's Theatre, where children with disabilities perform in a classic, family-friendly musical alongside Equity actors, with others assisting backstage. Directed by Head of Musical Theatre, Lara Teeter, the show is an amazing opportunity for everyone involved. Pictured above are alumni Ben Nordstrom and sophomore Austen Bohmer rehearsing with the cast.
