Entertaining, Fluffy, Slow

See it if You’re bringing kids Gr 1-3. My 1st grader enjoyed it somewhat. My pre-k who normally has remarkable attention span could not stay engaged.

Don't see it if Younger than 1st grade - not engaging enough.

Disappointing, Fluffy, Romantic, Slow, Indulgent

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 !

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."
