Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl,” and “Part of Your World.”

The Neil Simon Festival just completed its spring tour of Driving Miss Daisy starring Clarence Gilyard and Sheree Wilson—both of the long-running TV series Walker Texas Ranger—along with Neil Simon Festival founder Richard Bugg. The tour covered six of the most renowned theatres in the U.S., finishing up at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton, Wisconsin and the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts in Portsmouth, Ohio. In total, more than six thousand people saw the show this season, which drew standing ovations everywhere. Next week, the summer company will arrive in Cedar City to begin rehearsal for our summer season, which opens on July 12. See www.simonfest.org for details.
Heritage students are excited to present Seussical, May 4 & 5 at 7:00 pm at the Loveland Performing Arts Center located on Heritage’s campus.
This new musical story, based on the works of Dr. Seuss, weaves together his most famous tales and characters in fun and unexpected ways! From Broadway to your own neck of the woods, audiences and cast members have been able to dive into the world of Dr. Seuss nationwide since 2000. This imaginative story helps us all believe in the power of our own imagination, shows us the value of helping a friend, and helps us remember to be ourselves.
Performing for a sold-out crowd in our state-of-the-art, 620 seat Loveland Performing Arts Center is one of many life-changing opportunities students experience at Heritage. Three months of diligent practice, getting out of their comfort zones, memorizing lines, singing and dancing finally pays off when a sold-out crowd, including members of the local community, their family members and Heritage staff, provide a standing ovation!
