Group staging Disney play
NEW LENOX — Curtain Call Theatre’s Emily McCabe Musical Theatre Program was recently awarded the rights to “Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.”
The summer theater program was started 10 years ago and named after Emily McCabe, a 9-year-old who loved to perform. After she passed away, the camp began in a warehouse with 40 participants in one session.
Emily’s mother, Meg McCabe, co-produces the camp.
The Disney production will take place July 15-17 at Lincoln-Way Central High School. Tickets can be purchased at www.ccctheatre.com or by calling 708-699-2228.
