Ariel dreams of a life on land, but her father forbids her from any contact with the human world – those horrid “Fish Eaters!” Our young heroine decides to go against her father’s wishes and meets with the evil Ursula. There, Ariel strikes up a deal – give up your beautiful voice for a life on land. Little does Ariel know that Ursula is plotting to destroy her, King Triton and Ariel’s chance at true love. Will the beautiful mermaid defeat the evil octopus and have a happily ever after with Prince Eric? You’ll have to come to the theater to find out!
