Disney magic comes to life with the Broadway hit “The Little Mermaid” at Steel River Playhouse May 26 – June 11.

Professional director Dann Dunn is brings the fairytale to the stage, based on the Academy Award Winning 1989 animated Disney classic.

“The Little Mermaid” is perfect for all ages with beloved characters including Prince Eric (John DiFerdinando), Ariel (Amanda Morrell), Ursula (Alicia Huppman) and Sebastian (Tyreese Kadle). The amazing Broadway rendition has all your favorite numbers from the film, including “Part of Your World” and “Under the Sea.”

The critics have raved for this made-for-the-stage hit when it premiered on Broadway, declaring “I’d see it again in a heartbeat! Visually ingenious and emotionally satisfying. Forget the kids: I oohed and aahed like a six-year-old. A musical that does justice to the lovely film from which it sprang.” - Terry Teachout from The Wall Street Journal. “Disney’s done it again! I was just hoping the musical could live up to all I love about the movie. I’m glad to say this baby really swims. Just gorgeous — full of Disney magic!” - Anne Craig from Good Day New York. Also, “One of the most ravishing shows I have ever seen on a Broadway stage. Combines story, song and inventive staging into something that lifts our spirits and renews our faith that theater for ‘children’ can be enjoyed by everyone.” - Richard Zoglin from Time Magazine.
