This holiday season, audiences will journey “Under the Sea” for a spectacular new production and Northwest Premiere of the Broadway musical, Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Headstrong Ariel is no longer content to live on the ocean floor under the rule of her father, King Triton. Convinced she’ll only find happiness on land, she sets off to find a world where she belongs, battling a cruel sea witch and finding true love along the way. Adults and children alike will revel in the Academy Award®-winning hits by the legendary songwriting team of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, including “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.” This unforgettable production will feature dazzling costumes, a stunning pop-up book inspired set and visual effects that are pure magic.

This delightful production stars Seattle’s own Diana Huey as Ariel and Matthew Kacergis as Prince Eric, with Broadway’s Jennifer Allen as Ursula and Steven Blanchard as King Triton. The 5th Avenue’s production will also be performed in cities including Orlando, Cincinnati, Atlanta and Louisville, among others.
