Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the wildly popular animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and book by Doug Wright, this expanded, but faithful story will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, featuring "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."
Beautiful mermaid Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining 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.
This stage adaptation deepens the core relationships and themes of the original tale. While framed in a magical undersea world, it is ultimately the story of a father raising his strong-willed daughter, a daughter craving understanding, and a young man finding his place in the world and the friends who help them along the way.
It is a timeless story of letting go enough to let those we love grow.
