Performing Arts

If, as Shakespeare said, all the world’s a stage, then we contend that sometimes, a stage is all the world.

For a whole lot of Variety kids, the stage where they learn and perform a Variety Children’s Theatre production is a world where they gain self-esteem, self-confidence, independence, and socialization skills.

Where they discover they can not only reach for something greater, but grab it as well.

For a kid like Nick, surrounded by fantastic beasts and talking birds and flying nannies, one thing is real: he’s learned to believe in himself.

We invite you to join us under the sea for Variety Theatre’s 2018 production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Sing, dance and swim along as we follow Ariel’s journey to walk on land and find true love.

Now in its 10th year, Variety Theatre is the country’s only production of its kind. Featuring an inclusive Children’s Ensemble performing alongside a professional adult cast, this Broadway classic is a must-see event. In 2018, Variety Theatre was awarded the "Special Award for a Body of Work" by the St. Louis Theater Circle, an honor that is not an annual award, but is only presented when it is felt it is truly deserved. 

2018 Show Dates and Times:

Thursday, October 18 – 7 p.m.

Friday, October 19 – 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Saturday, October 20 – 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Sunday, October 21 – 1:30 p.m.
