Following the incredible success of Beauty and the Beast comes another spectacular Disney musical that appeals to audiences of all ages.

In a magical kingdom fathoms below, the precocious young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. When the evil sea witch, Ursula, grants her the opportunity to sprout legs and go after the heart of Prince Eric, she jumps at the opportunity. But with forces working against her, Ariel will need help from her friends and family if she is ever to see her dreams come true.

Featuring the hit songs “Part of Your World,” “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” and the Oscar®-winning “Under the Sea,” The Little Mermaid is a splashy Broadway spectacle for the entire family.
