Disney’s theatrical-produced musical the Little Mermaid is once again wowing audiences as the show begins its national tour! Based on the 1989 Disney film (and the 1837 fairy tale penned by Hans Christian Andersen), the show stars a fresh cast including Diana Huey as Ariel, Marjorie Failoni and Amanda Minano as the mersisters, and Jennifer Allen as Ursula, the evil sea witch.
Mermaid princess Ariel is fascinated by the world and lives of people on dry land, and longs to someday join them though her father, King Triton forbids contact. When she falls in love with human Prince Eric from afar, she makes a deal with her father’s sister and enemy Ursula: She is temporarily transformed into a human and may remain so if she wins the kiss of true love from her prince within three days. The dangerous mission leads to a showdown between good and evil forces which only love can remedy.
