In a magical kingdom fathoms below, a beautiful young mermaid longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. Adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production, this show features the hit songs "Part of Your World," "She’s in Love," and the Oscar-winning "Under the Sea."
Gather the kids, grandkids and neighborhood children for the classic story of the mermaid Ariel, who thinks life is so much better up on land. From the sets, costumes and lights to the singing, dancing and acting, you and your family will be propelled into the magic as you watch Ariel (Hailey Rae Smith) and her faithful friend Flounder (Connor Green) happily discover human stuff with their friends Scuttle (Arielle Jacobellis) and the Gulls (Baylee Fogelmanis, Max Killpatrick, Jade McGlynn). In the meantime, King Triton (John Tedrick), his trusty crab Sebastian (Maya Schlesinger), and Ariel’s sisters (Cayton Coburn, Kyle Green, Macaria Martinez, Kennedy Moore, Ashley Ruiz, McKenna Tedrick) can’t quite figure out what to do with her! In her thirst for more knowledge about a different life, Ariel gets herself entangled with the Sea Witch, Ursula (Michele McRae), and her evil eels (Tate Downing, Zoe Fagundes) and trades her voice to be human. She is washed to shore with her new human legs and is found by the handsome Prince Eric (Bennie Glasner), who takes her to his castle where she has to save Sebastian from Chef Louise (Hannah Davey) and her cooks! Ariel and Prince Eric fall in love (of course!) and well…you know the rest!
An incredible array of actors supports the story as Sailors/Cooks (Drew Downing, Griffen Hamilton, Alex Jackels, Colby Jackson, Andrew Perischetti, Kyle Warner) Tentacles (Gabby Chambers, Olivia Chambers, Roxanne Chevalier, Isabel Galvin, Kendall Green, Kailee McFerran, Abigail Thompson), Merfolk (Sam Herbert, Micah Meyers), Grimsby (Rick Perry), Carlotta (Shannon Fogelmanis), Starfish (Sammy Kilpatrick, John Michael Tedrick, Lilly Thompson), and the Seahorse (Marissa Margolis) – many of whom also play Sea and Lagoon Creatures! We invite you to enjoy this year's Children’s Production. You’ll be glad you joined us under the sea!
