"Disney's The Little Mermaid" A Weathervane Playhouse Emerging Artist Series Production Music by Alan Menken Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Sater Book by Doug Wright Directed by Chris Simmons Musical Director Kim Shama-Hanna Choreographed by Megan Gargano Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a beautiful love story for the ages. With its tuneful songs and compelling story, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl," "Poor Unfortunate Souls" and "Part of Your World." Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends — Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab — to restore order under the sea. Disney's The Little Mermaid is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
