The Little Mermaid
February 26 - April 23

Once upon a time there was a little mermaid who dreamed of the day when she would finally be old enough to explore the wonders of the world above the sea. When her turn comes, she is not disappointed. In fact she saves a young prince from drowning in a shipwreck and falls deeply in love with him. Now her longing increases, as she desires to become a mortal so she can marry her young prince; but as with all dreams, there are sacrifices. The little mermaid soon learns that getting her wish means making hard choices. She also learns how much she is willing to give up for someone she loves. 

Ticket includes a free family workshop one hour prior to every show.

Jennifer Ann’s Group Announces $10K Prize 10th Annual Live.Love Game Design Contest

February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, and as part of the national effort to raise awareness about abuse in teen relationships, Jennifer Ann’s Group has announced its annual Live.Love Game Design Contest with this year’s first prize, at $10,000.

Since 2008 Jennifer Ann’s Group, a nonprofit charity headquartered in Atlanta, has run a game design challenge to promote awareness of teen dating violence and provide educational information to protect teens. The contest is the largest and longest-running of its kind in the world, and has been named a Trailblazer as selected by the National Youth Advisory Board of Break the Cycle and nominated as a Media Mover by TAG. The contest is open to all over the age of 13 and receives entries from both the domestic and international video game community. Winning games have come from Argentina, Belgium, Canada, India, Ireland, Mexico, the U.S., U.K., Sweden, and Thailand.

For this, their 10th Annual Life.Love. Game Design Challenge, the contest is taking a new approach with the theme of “Back to Basics: consent.” Rather than challenging game designers to design video games broadly about the issue of teen dating violence the challenge this year is to focus on the issue of consent. Also new this year, entrants will submit their proposed game idea; a selection of those proposals will then be chosen to participate in the final round. Those selected to participate in the final round will then have several months to design and develop their games.

Registration for the contest will open on February 15th. Rules, sign-up information, FAQs, and previous winners are available through Jennifer Ann’s Group online at: (https://JAGga.me/contest)

WINTER 2017 “MUSICALS IN MUFTI” SERIES
PRESENTATION OF
DEAR WORLD
BOOK BY JEROME LAWRENCE AND ROBERT E. LEE
NEW VERSION BY DAVID THOMPSON
(BASED ON AN ADAPTATION BY MAURICE VALENCY
OF THE PLAY THE MADWOMAN OF CHAILLOT BY JEAN GIRAUDOUX)
MUSIC AND LYRICS BY JERRY HERMAN
MUSIC DIRECTION BY CHRISTOPHER MCGOVERN
DIRECTED BY MICHAEL MONTEL

Dear World the final presentation of the three shows in the Winter 2017 Musicals in Mufti Series will begin Saturday afternoon, February 25, 2017 for 12-performances only through March 5, 2017 at the York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s (entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue). Opening night is Sundayevening, February 26, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. 

When a group of businessmen scheme to drill for oil in Paris, there is only one force in the world that can stop them: Countess Aurelia, the Madwoman of Chaillot. With the help of idealism, love, and poetry—not to mention two other madwomen, a local sewerman, and a pair of young lovers—the Countess fights to save Paris and the worldfrom greed. With Dear World's opening on Broadway in 1969, Mr. Herman became the first composer-lyricist to have three productions simultaneously running on Broadway, and for her performance 2015 Oscar Hammerstein Honoree Angela Lansbury received the second of her five Tony® Awards. The York Theatre Company’s acclaimed Musicals in Mufti series of musical theatre gems, performed in a simply-staged, book-in-hand concert format, celebrates its twenty-second historic year of shows from the past that deserve a second look.  Mufti means “in street clothes, without the trappings associated with a full production.”

Dear World will play the following 12-performance schedule—First Week: Saturday at 2:30 p.m. & 8:00 p.m.Sundayat 2:30 & 7:00 p.m.; Second Week: Wednesday at 7:00 p.m., Thursday 2:30 p.m. & 8:00 p.m.Friday at 8:00 p.m.Saturday at 2:30 p.m. & 8:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.
