For the first time since 2019, we’re finally able to welcome a live audience to our spring musical, DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID! Based on the classic 1989 animated movie and the 2008 Disney Theatrical Production, DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID is a truly beautiful love story that will capture the hearts of young and old. With music by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman & Glenn Slater, and book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will have you singing along with its irresistible songs including: “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”
Ariel, the youngest of King Triton’s mermaid daughters, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric. In order to do this she bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and trades her voice for her own pair of human legs. In true villain fashion, the bargain is rigged and Ariel will need the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the Fish, Scuttle the Seagull, and Sebastian the crab to win over the heart of the Prince and mend her father’s trust all before the sun sets on the third day!
DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID is rated G for general audience; however, this production contains depictions of tobacco products.
