The Little Mermaid Houston Tickets

The Little Mermaid Houston Tickets

The Seafaring Fun of The Little Mermaid

Based on the Disney film, which was in turn based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid is one of the most beloved stories in film history among both children and adults. The fanciful underwater adventure starring land-obsessed mermaid Princess Ariel arrives in musical form in Houston in summer 2014. Though very similar to the original Disney film, the theatrical format boasts creative set designs, unusual costumes and unique technical approaches, making it a must-sea activity for any Disney fan.

Plot

Taking place several leagues beneath the waves, the story begins with Ariel, a mermaid princess who longs desperately to grow a pair of legs and explore the dry world above her home. Unfortunately, her father, King Triton, doesn't approve. Banning her obsession doesn't eradicate Ariel's interest, however. In fact, it spurs her to trade her beautiful singing voice in a deal with the treacherous sea witch Ursula for her opportunity to discover land and a chance to finally meet her true love Prince Eric, whom she saved from drowning when he tumbled from his vessel on a stormy night. Unfortunately, his only memory of her is her golden voice.

The ensuing adventure offers plenty of excitement, including educational lessons by seagulls and feats of bravery by fish and crabs. The tale is familiar to fans of the movie, but there are several scenes that are unique to the musical, including a number of new songs devoted enthusiasts will love more than dinglehoppers, as well as a slightly altered climax. The result is a story as fresh as the day's catch, even for aficionados.

Schedule

The Little Mermaid Swims into Houston in June 2014, at the Sarofim Hall - Hobby Center. The first show is Friday, June 13, and performances continue until Sunday, June 29. Performances are held Tuesday through Sunday, with weekday evening shows at 7:30pm, Friday and Saturday shows at 8 pm, and weekend matinees at 2 pm.

Trivia

The watery effects in The Little Mermaid stage production are produced with light and translucent materials. Ariel originally had a motorized tail that could move on its own, but it's no longer used due to the noise it made. Fans with Little Mermaid Houston tickets will enjoy hearing several new songs, including "Human Stuff," "Her Voice" and "Beyond My Wildest Dreams."

Cast

Playing the titular character with fiery hair and spirit is Chelsea Morgan Stock, and her human love Prince Eric is played by Eric Kunze. The other cast of characters includes Steve Blanchard as King Triton, Liz McCartney as Ursula, Alan Mingo, Jr. as Sebastian the crab, Shawn Platzker as Flounder, Matt Allen as Scuttle the seagull, Sean Patrick Doyle as Jetsam, Scott Leiendecker as Flotsam, and Ron Wisniski as Grimsby.

Original Author

Though Hans Christian Andersen is credited with the initial incarnation of this tale, Ron Clements and John Musker get the credit for the far-less grim and wildly adored film version. Doug Wright wrote the book for the musical. Alan Menken and Howard Ashman crafted the music and lyrics for the film, with Glenn Slater producing the new lyrics for the stage production.

Producers

Fans with The Little Mermaid Houston tickets can thank Michael A. Jenkins, president of Dallas Summer Musicals for producing the musical, along with all the helping hands that come with the Dallas Summer Musicals team. The director is Glenn Casale, famous for directing the revival of Peter Pan for Broadway.
