Presenting…Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”

mermaid1

 

The Florida Chautauqua Theatre is happy to invite you to join us as we present Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”…the Broadway musical based on one of the most celebrated animated films of all time and winner of two Academy Awards for best original score and for best song, “Under the Sea.”

In a magical kingdom fathoms below, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above.  But first she’ll have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince Prince Eric that she’s the girl with the enchanting voice.   With memorable lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, classic music by Alan Menken, and a humorous book by Doug Wright, “The Little Mermaid” will thrill audiences of all ages

42 local actors ranging in age from 5 to…well, let’s say a bit older than 5!…will fill the stage with singing, dancing, and laughter.  This beloved fairy tale will feature the spectacular costumes our Florida Chautauqua Theatre patrons have come to expect from the hands of our amazingly talented costume mavens.   Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” offers a wonderful opportunity to bring your entire family together for live theatre at its best and to support the arts here in our extended community.

And…what a perfect way to spend Mother’s Day!

Production Dates are:

Thursday, May 9th at 7:00 p.m.

Friday, May 10th at 7:00 p.m.

Saturday, May 11th at 7:00 p.m.

Sunday, May 12th at 2:30 p.m.

Holiday Concert Delights Audience

The Okaloosa Chamber Singers performed at FUMC

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Sunday, December 2nd, the Okaloosa Chamber Singers kicked off the holiday season with an afternoon concert sponsored by the Florida Chautauqua, Inc.  The sanctuary of  the First United Methodist Church located on Circle Drive in DeFuniak Springs,  resounded with the voices of the select choir members and their musical accompanists.  This year’s concert attendees had the added pleasure of enjoying the addition of a string ensemble, oboes, cellos and English horns. Traditional Christmas carols, as well as a selection of classical pieces, appealed to a broad and varied audience of approximately 200 people.  Following the concert, participants and guests were treated to a reception on the porch where a traditional holiday fare was served which included dessert items.   Recipes for many of the sweets and treats appear in the newly released Florida Chautauqua Cookery cookbook.  Some guests proceeded on to enjoy the lights of Christmas Reflections surrounding our beautiful lake.  This event has become a holiday tradition for many families and is a much anticipated event in our hometown.
