The Delaware Children’s Theatre begins its 2016-2017 season with a splash when The Little Mermaid takes stage October 1 through 30. Adapted from a story by Hans Christian Andersen and based on the Disney animated film, “The Little Mermaid” invites audiences to experience a whole new world of magical creatures.
In a kingdom far beneath the sea, Mermaid Princess Ariel longs to live on land when she meets human Prince Eric. So begins a musical journey that introduces us to remarkable characters like King Triton, Ursula the Sea Witch and Sebastian the Crab. With well loved songs like “Part of Your World, and “Under the Sea” this delightful fairytale musical should not be missed. And all children are invited to come in costume and participate in DCT’s traditional Princess and Prince parade at intermission.
The Little Mermaid runs every Saturday and Sunday in October at 2 pm. For more information and to buy tickets, check out www.dechildrenstheatre.org.
