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.

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 the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."

Production Fees and Ticketing:

We are planning on block ticketing for this show since performances we are planning on in-person performances. Block Ticketing means that families are responsible for selling 10 tickets at a discounted rate of $16 a piece to family and friends. This is done by using a personal box office link that can be shared. If families do not sell their 10 tickets by the time the show closes, the remaining dollar amount will be charged to the Family Account. More information will be coming with details!
