Oklahoma City - Calling all mermaids and mermen for an adventure under the sea. Oklahoma Christian University’s music department opens The Little Mermaid, Thursday, October 31 at 7:30 p.m. Young Disney fans are invited to come in costume after trick-or-treat and stay after the show for photos with the cast.
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."
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.
The student cast and crew are prepared to delight audiences with rich costumes and sets, as well as performances of some of Disney’s best-known songs.
The show continues through Nov. 2. Tickets!
