The Asheville Area Arts Council’s Kids Tixx program provides access to wonderful cultural experiences not always in the budget for some of Buncombe County’s families, while also supporting our local arts presenters! Kids Tixx provides free admission for one child and one adult to local arts and cultural events, exhibits, and more.
We believe that creative experiences are vitally important to quality of life, and inspire and bring joy to young hearts. Cultural experiences also bring families closer together, and provide a moment out of time that become meaningful memories. For some, the Kids Tixx program may one of the few art related experiences that a child will have all year. We appreciate our donors, who are willing to reach out and nurture joy in our community in this way, while also supporting our worthy arts presenters.
The Asheville Area Arts Council is currently offering Kids Tixx to the following event:
Asheville Community Theatre’s: The Little Mermaid Jr.
Friday May 9th 7:30pm showtime
ACT’s youth production class presents The Little Mermaid Jr. In a magical kingdom fathoms below, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to 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 with the enchanting voice. Adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr. features the hit songs “Part of Your World,” “She’s in Love,” and the Oscar-winning “Under the Sea.”
