After two sold out runs of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and multiple regional awards and accolades, Area Stage is going back to the world of Disney to bring The Little Mermaid to the Adrienne Arsht Center. Step into a massive seaside tavern where sailors and pirates gather to share myths of mermaids and adventure. Once inside, Ariel and Eric’s story will brought to life all around the audience in an epic under the sea spectacular.
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."
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 colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.
