About The Little Mermaid
The 1989 Disney animated musical is now a Tony Award-nominated Broadway production that delights audiences of all ages with fantastic songs, humor and teenage angst. Award-winning musical numbers include “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World” and “Kiss the Girl.” During its Broadway run, The Little Mermaid became an instant fan favorite.
The Little Mermaid tells the story of Ariel, a teenage mermaid who wants to leave her fins behind and live on land. Her fascination with life above the sea leads to conflict with her father, King Triton, who forbids contact with humans. When she falls in love with human Prince Eric from afar, she determines to do anything to be with him. This leads her to the evil sea witch Ursula. Ariel makes a deal to trade her voice to become temporarily human. Ursula adds the condition that she can stay human if the prince kisses her within three days; otherwise, Ariel becomes one of the witch’s captives. Helped by her friend and side-kick Sebastian the crab, she sets out on a quest that sets up a showdown between good and evil that will ultimately decide the fate of all the characters.
