Studio West Productions Presents the Hit Broadway Musical “Disney’s The Little Mermaid”
Featuring a Live Orchestra, West Forsyth High School’s Award Winning Studio West Productions is excited to present the Hit Broadway Musical, “Disney’s The Little Mermaid!” With rich costumes and “Out of this World” sets, this delightfully entertaining family show will have you singing some of the most memorable songs from the past 30 years.
Eric Gray the shows director says,”I am very excited about doing The Little Mermaid. Just like last years award winning Nice Work if You can Get it, I felt I have the right cast for this show. People go to see the Junior version at middle schools all the time, but let me tell you this show is no Junior version! It has so much more and is a very hard show to perform.
I am excited to bring such a wonderful story to the West Forsyth Stage and very excited to have a live orchestra again with a lot of the same players we had last year. I hope our audience will come out and support the show.”
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl,” and “Part of Your World.” Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above and bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.
Let Studio West Productions bring a little Broadway to West Forsyth!
