Huntington Area Regional Theater

At Greater Huntington Park & Recreation District’s (GHPRD) Ritter Park Amphitheater, summer means outdoor theater, and this summer will be no exception!  Coming to the Ritter Park Amphitheater this July is Huntington Area Regional Theater's (HART) production of Disney's "The Little Mermaid" with HART Jr.'s exciting new Pre-Show Disney’s "Frozen Jr.” as the opening pre-show each night.

Huntington Area Regional Theater was formed in 2013 on the heels of Huntington Outdoor Theater closing their gates, when local theater veterans Mary and Tommy Smirl and Clint McElroy approached GHPRD Executive Director Kevin Brady with a plan to keep outdoor theater alive in Huntington. With GHPRD underwriting the operation, the Smirls and McElroys began attracting a tribe of local actors, musicians, and tech crew members who would later become known as the Choose Joy Players. The Choose Joy Players were formed in loving memory of Leslie McElroy, wife of Clint and dear friend of Mary, who humbled everyone with her attitude of “choosing joy” in the face of the desperation that comes with a sudden terminal illness. "Choose Joy" is the mantra that keeps this theater group centered, focused, and able to enjoy the process! HART opened in the Summer of 2014 and has continued to wow audiences with excellence in outdoor theater since its inception.
