Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the 1989 animated Disney film, “Disney's The Little Mermaid” is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. 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.  This enchanting tale will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."
