The Little Mermaid the Musical Off-Broadway
Once upon a time there was a little mermaid who dreamed of the day when she would finally be old enough to explore the wonders of the world above the sea. When her time comes, she is not disappointed. In fact she saves a young prince from drowning in a shipwreck and falls deeply in love with him. Now her longing increases, as she desires to become a mortal so she can marry her young prince; but as with all dreams, there are sacrifices. The little mermaid soon learns that getting her wish means making hard choices. She also learns how much she is willing to give up for someone she loves.
The production features a live music ensemble and includes a family workshop 1 hour prior to the Sat 3p and Sun 11a matinee performances. Here the audience meets members of the creative team as well as an actor from the production who relate how they turn a book into a musical onstage. Afterward, the children are invited to create a sea creature that they can bring home as a souvenir.
