features a talented cast of more
 than 40 young area performers 



Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and adapted from
Disney’s Broadway production and the motion picture, “Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr.” is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and live in the world above. But first, she'll have to defy her father,
King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince the handsome
Prince Eric that she's the girl whose enchanting voice he's been seeking.

With music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glen Slater, the score includes such familiar favorites as “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World,”
“Kiss the Girl” and “Poor Unfortunate Souls.”

Flounder and Anna Marie Hickey (Danbury) is Scuttle. Vincent Fontenelli is Prince Eric
