Drawing upon local talent and bringing together performers of all ages, the Summer Community Musical has been a staple of Wilson theatrical culture since 2011. Each performance is a festival of sight and sound with dramatic costumes and stage decoration. Be sure to plan your trip to Wilson each July for this must-see performance.
Wilson Arts and The Singers Studio are looking forward to another amazing Annual Summer Community Musical in 2023 with Disney's The Little Mermaid, scheduled for July 13-16, 2023.
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."
Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining 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.
