Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for all ages. Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above and bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea. With its irresistible score, which includes Under the Sea, Kiss the Girl, and Part of Your World this fishy fable is sure to capture the hearts of young and old!
â€śI’d see it again in a heartbeat! Forget the kids: I oohed and aahed like a six-year-old. A musical that does justice to the lovely film from which it sprang.â€ť â€“ The Wall Street Journal
