By  | 

DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) Friday is opening night for Disney's The Little Mermaid JR. at Danville's Historic North Theatre.

WDBJ7 caught up with owner Wayne Alan Friday afternoon as he was getting ready for the show.

The youth theatre group is made up of 46 actors between 8 and 18 years old.

Alan says loves seeing the dynamic of the group working together and those that have grown up in the theatre take what they've learned to the next level.

"Watching these young people that have been in the shows for three years of my owning the theatre and how they have progressed how they have become. I mean some of them are going on to college, getting scholarships in theatre," Owner Wayne Alan said.

The play continues this weekend and next weekend.

Show times include:

Saturday, April 30th at 7:30 pm
Sunday, May 1st at 2:30 pm
May 6th and 7th, at 7:30 pm and May 8th at 2:30 pm
