About the show

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. 

Who can attend
Young people age 8 to 13, who want to learn musical theater from professional actors and counselors. Every child is guaranteed a part in the show. Students must be 8 years old by December 30, 2015, and should be able to read at the 3rd grade reading level.
