The Little Mermaid

Join CYT for a journey "under the sea" with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney's The Little Mermaid Jr., adapted from Disney's 2008 Broadway production. 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 eveil sea witch Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she's the girl whose enchanting voice he's been seeking.

Written to flow seamlessly between land and sea, Disney's The Little Mermaid Jr. provides plenty of opportunities to bring these locations to life through creative movement and configurations. The fantasy of being underwater means the cast can let their imaginations run wild.

Performance dates for this musical are Sept 26-28, 2014!

Aladdin

For Aladdin it's not easy to find a magic lamp but it's even harder to get a date! It's a swirling sandstorm of famous Arabian Tales from Ali Baba to Scheherazade and even Sinbad the Sailor as Aladdin journeys to find a magic lamp in a cave of (not-so-great) wonders. Along his way Aladdin seeks answers and advice from wise genies, a powerful sultan and even his own mother to find a way to meet the princess. However, even with the lamp in hand, Aladdin will have to learn that it takes more than a wish to make a good impression!

Auditions will be on September 29, 2014 at 4:30 PM. All Missoula Children's Theatre shows are designed for students Kindergarten through 12th grade. There are roles especially suited for all ages, skill levels and experience levels. Performance dates for this show are October 4, 2014 at 7 PM!

TG Sheppard and Kelly Lang

Even though TG Sheppard and Kelly Lang have been married since 2007, they have continued to work separately despite their fans' requests until the debut of their duets record. With the release of "Iconic Duets" -- a collection that features their take on many timeless collaborations, such as "Jackson" and "Golden Ring," they have fulfilled their fans' request.

Lang felt the time was right for the duets project. "People have asked us to record or to sing together, and we put it off. I didn't want people to think that's all we did. I wanted to establish some music on my own."

In addition to his solos, Sheppard indicates that recording a duet is very different. "It's more difficult than I thought it would be. When you're doing an album on your own, you only have to worry about one individual." Sheppard indicated he had a blast recording with his wife.

See TG Sheppard and Kelly Lang at the Crighton on October 17, 2014.

Lone Star Greeting Service

Let our personalized greeting service represent your business or church! We are the premier welcoming service in the Houston area. Our friendly greeters personally deliver welcome packages, including area information, local coupons and gifts to new homeowners. We tell the new resident about your business or church - who you are, where you are located and the services you offer. New homeowners will purchase more products and services in the first few months of their arrival than an established resident will purchase over several years.

We greet neighbors personally! Effective and affordable advertising that gets results. By connecting personally with each of the new homeowners in the community we have the distinct advantage of "word of mouth" advertising. Junk mail, TV and billboards all miss the interaction of a neighborly visit. We deliver small gifts and information about your business or church, and above all, we answer questions. Every time your materials are presented to a newcomer, it's a new opportunity to create that all important "first impression".
