Disney’s The Little Mermaid tells the story of a young mermaid who dreams of the world above the sea. 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 underwater friends, Flounder, Scuttle, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea. Disney’s The Little Mermaid is based upon one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film. A hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages, the musical features such irresistible songs as “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”
