Show Description:
Based on the classic fairy tale and film, The Little Mermaid begins under the sea where Princess Ariel is fascinated by the forbidden land above. After saving Eric from stormy waters, she begins to discover her love for the human prince. In an effort to be with him, Ariel makes a deal with a sea witch and trades her voice for temporary life on land. Only when Ariel achieves true love will her voice return and her transformation be completed. This dangerous sacrifice ultimately leads to an epic battle of good and evil that only love can remedy. The Little Mermaid was nominated for the 2008 Tony Award for Best Original Score and the Grammy for Best Musical Show Album.
