About the show
Journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID JR., adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and live in the world above. But first she’ll have to defy her father King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she’s the girl whose enchanting voice he’s been seeking.

Roles available:

Ariel, the heroine of our story, is a little mermaid who longs to be human.

Flotsam and Jetsam are Ursula’s slippery spies. These electric eels are sinister and sneaky.
Flounder is Ariel’s sincere and sensitive best friend who is loyal to the end.
Grimsby is Prince Eric’s prim and proper valet. He is rigid in personality and constantly trying to guide Prince Eric towards the throne.
The Gulls are Scuttle’s flock of zany “back-up singers” who help explain human stuff to Ariel.
King Triton rules the sea and is a force to be reckoned with.

The Seahorse is the court herald for King Triton.
