The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati presents Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR. this October at the Taft Theatre!
As are most kids, she is very excited about this show, and so am I. Here’s a little about the show from The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati.
Audiences will dive into the new season of The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati with Ariel and her aquatic friends in DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID JR. which has been adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production. The show runs October 16-18, 24 & 25 at the Taft Theatre. The show will be directed and choreographed by Roderick Justice. Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, Music by Alan Menken. Book by Doug Wright. Based on the Hans Christian Andersen Story and the Disney Film produced by Howard Ashman & John Musker and written & directed by John Musker and Ron Clements. Puppets by The Frisch Marionettes. Flying Effects provided by ZFX, Inc.
In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and be part of 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 with the enchanting voice that he has been seeking.
