Firehall Theatre will be producing "The Little Mermaid" to run November 17-19, 2022 at the Esplanade.
Beautiful mermaid Ariel should be a happy girl - she lives in an enchanted undersea world, her father is a King, and she has the most beautiful singing
voice. But she is a passionate, headstrong teenager, and wants what she cannot have - to live on land. When she falls in love with a handsome human prince,
Ariel is more determined than ever to gain a pair of legs. But her only option is to defy her father, and bargain with Ursula, the Sea Witch, giving her
voice as the price of entry onto dry land. With the help of her friends, Flounder, Scuttle and Sebastian, Ariel has to gain Prince Eric's love within
three days - or lose her soul to the ambitious witch! Based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, and the wildly popular Disney film, this musical
staging of The Little Mermaid features a funny and fanciful book by Doug Wright, with the beloved score by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Glenn Slater
in an expanded but completely faithful form, featuring the rambunctious and persuasive "Under the Sea," the romantic expectation of "Kiss the Girl," and
that anthem to longing and belonging, "Part of Your World."
