Aug. 11-13—SOUTH POMFRET— ArtisTree is excited to announce its Music Theatre Festival, Aug. 11-Oct. 22 in the Grange Theatre, a new state-of-the-art, 90-seat venue in South Pomfret.

“We wanted to open the new theatre with a bang!” said Chris Flockton, ArtisTree’s director of theatre arts. “And what better way than with four terrific musicals with huge audience appeal?”

Disney’s “The Little Mermaid, Jr.” will be performed at the culmination of a two-week summer camp by young people, ages 7-18 years, from all over the Upper Valley. It’s an incredible opportunity for young performers to learn stagecraft from theatre professionals. The production is directed by Marc de la Concha.

To give the community a sneak peek at the new facility, The Grange Theatre will host an open house Saturday, Aug. 5 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. All are welcome to join in and celebrate this new community space with facility tours, live music, and light refreshments. It is located at 65 Stage Road, So. Pomfret.
