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.

A Christmas Story
December 8th at 2pm & 7:30 pm
“You’ll shoot your eye out!”
By Philip Grecian. Based on the motion picture A Christmas Story, © 1983 Turner Entertainment Co., distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark; and on the book In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd.
Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Higbee’s Department Store. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out!”
Join us for this celebrated holiday classic featuring Holy Heart High School’s rising stars December 7th & 8th before Scut Farkus finds you!
Direction: John Rao
Featuring Lauren Shepherd, Sophia Ryan, Cameron Johnston, Noah Davis-Abraham and many more HHM Performing Arts Students!
“A Christmas Story is still…one of the more enchanting ways to be transported to a world beyond our own. Yet it also serves to remind us how lucky we are to live a culturally rich life…and Philip Grecian’s thoughtful stage adaptation preserves the old…references.” – Plain Dealer
“Classics bloom quickly in modern times…you don’t have to have grown up with 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his ache for an air rifle under the tree to think of A Christmas Story as a Christmas must. And [this] version is just as kindly and just as cockeyed as A Christmas Story is meant to be.” – Orlando Sentinel
“Grecian’s script retains Shepherd’s wry, tongue-in-cheek humor.” – Orange County Register
Produced by Special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company Woodstock, Illinois

The heroes always have their time in the spotlight, but for this year’s Performing Arts Cabaret we’ll give the devil his
due just in time for Halloween.
Scenes, songs, and dance numbers in homage to classic plays, musicals, and popular culture.
The only place where the “Time Warp” will meet “Night on Bald Mountain,” where Frankenfurter shares the stage with Dracula.
Bring a friend, bring two, as we gather around the cauldron, and bear witness to the villain’s lament.
Intimate setting. Audience is seated on stage with the performers. Limited seating.
