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 turn comes, she is not disappointed. In fact she saves a young prince from drowning in a shipwreck and falls deeply in love with him. As her longing increases, she desires to become a mortal so she can marry her young prince; but, as with all dreams, there are sacrifices. There is a free family workshop one hour prior to every performance. Best for young children.

Ticket News

for a previous production "The bittersweet musical explores topics of sacrifice and the human soul. But with a nice balance of seriousness and silliness, 'The Little Mermaid' is never out of the depth of its intended (young) audience...The entire cast is well-matched to the show, but during the reviewed opening show, Stefanie Smith and Eric Fletcher gave stand-out performances."

Disappointing, Good singing, Good dancing, Different than expected

See it if You want to see a different version of TheLittle Mermaid than the familiar Disney one.

Don't see it if You are attached to the Disney version of the story and you don't want to see anything that varies from that.

See it if A young child is with you. Not the traditional version . Same title but totally different plot and songs. Best part is pre show workshop.

Don't see it if You want good acting, this is quite amateurish. You need high production values to enjoy a show. Least professional kids show I have seen !
