Tony Award-nominated director Gen Casale and choreographer John MacInnis bring the story of Hans Christian Andersen and the classic Disney film to life. The musical includes songs like “Under the Sea”, “Kiss the Girl”, and “Part of Your World”.

Casale previously worked on 2019’s “Shrek The Musical” for the theater’s main stage.

Making her theatrical debut, Diana Huey will play the role of Ariel. She played the character in national tour productions of “The Little Mermaid” and won a Helen Hayes Award for her portrayal of Kim in “Miss Saigon.”

Sean Thompson, who previously played Warner in 2019’s “Legally Blonde” at The Walnut, will star as Prince Eric. Derrick Cobey will play King Triton, with Dana Orange as the humorous crab, Sebastian. Rebecca Robbins, a frequent artist on site, will play Ursula the wicked sea witch.

Young people from the surrounding suburbs will form all the children.

Guests must present proof of vaccination to enter the theater. Unvaccinated children under 12 can provide a negative COVID-19 test at the door. Tickets are on sale now and range from $25 to $127.
