Returning to the Pickleville stage by overwhelming popular demand! Experience the magic of Disney’s underwater musical adventure in a way you’ve never seen it before! Ariel, King Triton’s youngest mer-daughter, has one wish: to live among the humans in the great big world above. After falling head-over-tails for the shipwrecked Prince Eric, Ariel barters a deal with her evil Aunt Ursula, trading her voice for a chance at true love. With help from her colorful friends, Flounder the guppy, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab, Ariel attempts to capture Prince Eric’s heart and restore order under the sea before it’s too late! Splashed with some of Disney’s most memorable tunes (Under the Sea, Part of Your World, Kiss the Girl) this fishy fable is a bullseye for audiences of all ages.

Pickleville’s original brand of hilarious, improvisational tomfoolery continues this summer with our all-new, modern musical melodrama: Thick As Thieves. When two con artist brothers get caught in a heist red-handed, they’re coerced into an undercover sting operation, posing as the grieving children to their beloved parents, recently 86’ed by an unknown source. The catch: their would-be parents are the former owners of a rundown local theater and in order for the boys to claim their inheritance, they’ve gotta put on a show. The tables turn quickly as a bombshell showgirl appears on the scene, pulling on both brothers’ heartstrings and throwing their entire scheme out of whack. Full of chaos, catastrophe and curveballs, this show will keep you on your toes from curtain to curtain. Bring your entire family and be ready for the ab workout only Pickleville hysterics can provide. This one’s a real doozy!
This originally choreographed production is about what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself. However, a little help from a Fairy Godmother and some magic shoes doesn't hurt. We look forward to seeing you there!
