Kids' Cabaret is a Hingham based non-profit organization that gives local youth a chance to immerse themselves in the art of theater, music, and dance. Kids' Cabaret provides kids with the opportunity to perform in a full-length musical each summer!
This year’s summer musical is Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Jr.” by Alan Menken. The show is based on Disney's beloved 1989 film “The Little Mermaid.”
More than 50 local actors have been working hard all summer to put on a great show and this fantastic permorfance will not disappoint!
Each year Kids' Cabaret staff work behind-the-scenes on the production team and/or work directly with young actors to teach them acting, music, and dance skills. Not only does Kids Cabaret inspire a love of the arts in its participants, but it also builds character. Each participating thespian learns group cooperation, individual responsibility, and conflict resolution, among other necessary life skills.
Since the summer of 1989, Kids' Cabaret has been a safe and encouraging environment for local adolescent theatre-lovers ages 8-16 where they can form strong friendships and make unforgettable memories!
Performances of “Little Mermaid Jr.” are this Thursday 7/28, Friday 7/29, and Saturday 7/30 at 7:00 pm ET at the Hingham High School Auditorium.
Tickets are available here or each night at the door for $10.
