Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” is set to headline 2012’s Music Circus season, the musical theater group announced Monday.

This year will mark the first time “The Little Mermaid” will be performed by the Music Circus’ cast, and four additional musicals will be shown, all of which the theater previously performed.

Rounding out the season will be performances of “Grease,” “The Music Man,” “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Crazy for You,” according to the announcement.

Traditionally, the Music Circus season has seven shows, but it was reduced to five this year, according to Executive Producer Richard Lewis.

“Many of our patrons told us that their busy summer schedules made it difficult for them to attend all seven shows in our season – yet they still wanted to enjoy the benefits of being a season subscriber, especially the savings on tickets,” Lewis said. “So we reduced the season to five shows, with a week off between shows, to give patrons more flexibility to engage in their other summer activities and still enjoy the entire Music Circus season.”

Season tickets for 2012 range from $150 – $240 depending on seat location and show date, and they are currently available by going to the box office at 1419 H St. or calling 557-1999.

“Grease” will be shown from June 26 – July 1 and tells the story from the famous film of the same name.

Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” will play from July 10 – 22. Children’s tickets will be available for $30 in all sections for this show only.

“The Music Man” runs from July 31 – Aug. 5 and is about a salesman in small-town America who promises to start a children’s marching band.

In “Fiddler on the Roof,” which goes from Aug. 14 – 19, the protagonist must balance his love for tradition with love for his daughters after a man whom he finds unsuitable woos his child.

From Aug. 28 – Sept. 2, “Crazy for You” will be shown, giving audiences a lighthearted boy-meets-girl love story.
