    Ariel is the little mermaid princess who longs to leave her ocean kingdom to live in the world above. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved story and the Disney animated film, The Little Mermaid tells a tale of longing, love and sacrifices, as princess Ariel risks everything to join her prince on land. Meet the majestic King Triton and the malevolent sea witch Ursula, as a host of Ariel’s undersea friends and enemies battle to rule the future in an adventure that will capture your heart. This magical musical includes irresistible songs: “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl,” and “Part of Your World.” Director Melissa Rain Anderson and New York City’s 2 Ring Circus collaborate to bring breathtaking aerial feats and imaginative theatrical magic to this spectacular holiday production.

    “Cast and crew have obviously worked long hours to create a nearly seamless flow of joyous song, dance, and magic – the last due in large part to the creative theatrics of New York-based 2 Ring Circus…”

    “This is a sparkling group of actors who as a whole deliver this production of
    The Little Mermaid as if they were presenting an extravagant and hilarious holiday gift to the audience.”

    Wise to the Words

    “Director Melissa Rain Anderson delivers everything we expect from a PCPA holiday production – spectacle, fun, and heart.”

    “Yusef Seevers is an over-the-top showman as crab composer Sebastian. His big, lavish production numbers like ‘Under the sea’ and “Kiss the Girl’ are enhanced with aerial acrobatics and other feats (circus choreography by 2 Ring Circus).”

    “Come be a part of PCPA’s world, before the bubbles drift away.”

    “To elevate the fairytale magic of the story, [Director Melissa Rain] Anderson brought in the team of circus artists , Ben Franklin and Joshua Dean, who trained the cast in trapeze and other circus arts for this production; they also lend their acrobatic talents to it as performers. The trapeze and circus aspects add a feeling of weightlessness along a vertical plane… In the musical number, ‘Kiss the Girl,’ the circus elements create an aerial spectacle as birds soar down from the sky to the sea.”

    “It’s a charming production that will buoy your holiday spirits.’
