Magic… bright, beautiful, colorful, Disney magic with a healthy dose of fun! That is our aim for this production of The Little Mermaid at the Muni this summer. Everyone knows the story of Princess Ariel and her determined journey to find her perfect place out of the water with her quintessential Prince Eric. Along the way, she and her friends Flounder and Scuttle manage to challenge her guardian, Sebastian, frustrate her loving father, King Triton, and temporarily fall under the spell of her evil aunt, Ursula. In the end (it is Disney after all) everyone lives happily ever after, but on our journey we learn how misunderstandings can cause way too much heartache and unnecessary drama, and how two very separate worlds learn to live together in harmony. All it takes is a little understanding, unconditional love and …magic!

A young mermaid, Ariel, is captivated by the world that exists above the waters. During one of her trips to the surface, she sees and falls in love with a handsome prince who just happens to be human, and she is willing to defy her father’s demands to be with him. Her determination to become human results in a costly deal with a villainous sea witch that requires winning the prince’s love before time runs out. 


This princess’ tale is full of excitement, a little bit of drama, great music, and very Disney happily ever after.
