Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the movie which began the Disney Renaissance

From classic literature to the Academy Award-winning film and Broadway musical, Ariel’s undersea journey is a story for the ages.

(Friday and Saturday at 7pm, Sunday at 2pm)

Journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR., adapted from Disney’s Broadway production and the motion picture (featuring the enormously popular Academy Award-winning music and delightfully charming book and lyrics). Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories, Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR. is an exploration of a young girl’s quest to quench her thirst whetted by her curiosity about a world unknown to her.

In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince Prince Eric that she’s the girl whose enchanting voice he’s been seeking.

Anjelah Johnson: Technically Not Stalking @ Hoyt Sherman Place
Nov 16 @ 7:00 pm

Mexican and Native American comedian and actress Anjelah Johnson-Reyes has become a favorite with both audiences and critics alike. Her comedy reaches across platforms from the stage to online to TV to film, with The Las Vegas Review Journal gushing about her last tour Johnson is an energized presence, an exclamation point incarnate.” After a stint as a professional cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders, she became an internet sensation with her viral video, “Nail Salon” which led to her joining the cast of FOX’s hit comedy series MadTV. Her spot as a series regular spawned another internet sensation, “Bon Qui Qui.” This original character, a disgruntled fast food employee with no filter, has been enjoyed, viewed and replicated by over 65 million people worldwide. Additionally, she has been featured in such comedy fan-favorite TV shows as ABC’s Ugly Betty, HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, and NBC’s Superstore. She is also a familiar face on the talk show circuit, with multiple appearances on CBS’s The Talk, ABC’s The View, and NUVO’s Mario Lopez: One on One.

Anjelah’s fourth hour standup special Mahalo & Goodnight, filmed in Honolulu, Hawaii, premiered on Epix in 2017 with Maxim Magazine declaring “her comedy (is) uproariously funny and, in a time of great racial and political strife, oddly healing.” The special is currently streaming on Hulu. Her third hour special Not Fancy, which is a Netflix original, is currently available for streaming on the platform along with her second hour The Homecoming Show. Her first hour special That’s How We Do It premiered on Comedy Central in 2009.

On the big screen, Johnson has starred in such films as Our Family WeddingAlvin and the Chipmunks: The SqueakquelEnough SaidThe Resurrection of Gavin Stone, and Moms’ Night Out.
