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. Everyone registered will have a part in the play. Auditions and callbacks are for casting purposes only. Practices begin in January, twice a week for 2 hours each practice.
