This weekend, take a journey “Under the Sea” with the University of Michigan’s School of Music Theatre & Dance at the Power Center! The Little Mermaid will awaken the child in all who see this Disney classic. Those who didn’t grow up with this princess will still surely fall in love with the story, the characters like Flounder and Sebastian, and songs such as “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World”.
The Little Mermaid is the tale of a young mermaid named Ariel who wants to adventure into the human world, but her father King Triton won’t allow her since it is too dangerous. Ariel saves Prince Eric after he falls off of his ship, and falls desperately in love with him. So in love that she trades her voice for legs with the evil sea witch Ursula. Ariel finally gets the chance to experience human life! She gets help from her beloved friends, Flounder the fish and Sebastian the crab, along the way. The only catch is that she must kiss the prince within 72 hours or else she will lose her voice, and her freedom to Ursula forever.
The Little Mermaid can be seen Thursday April 13 at 7:30pm, Friday April 14 at 8pm, and Saturday and Sunday April 15-16 at 2pm. Tickets are on sale now: Reserved seating $26-$32 and Students $12 with ID.
