Align Entertainment will be going all out with lavish sets, costumes and full orchestra for the BC Premiere of the large scale musical, The Little Mermaid, based on the animated Disneyfilm, and the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen.

The story about a mermaid who dreams of the world above the sea and risks everything to find love was written by the Academy, Grammy, and Tony Award winning duo of Alan Menken(music) and Howard Ashman (lyrics).  The stage production features all your favourite songs including: Part of Your World, Under the Sea, Poor Unfortunate Souls, and Kiss the Girl.

The Little Mermaid stars Elyse Maloway as Ariel, Damon Calderwood as King Triton, Colton Fyfe (Prince Eric), Erin Matchette (Ursula), Julio Fuentes (Sebastian) and Chris Adams(Scuttle).

Mermaid princess Ariel is fascinated by and longs to join the lives of people on dry land, though her father, King Triton forbids it. When she falls in love with Prince Eric, a human from afar, she makes a deal with Ursula, her father’s sister and enemy.  Ariel is temporarily transformed into a human and may stay that way if she wins the kiss of true love from her prince within three days. The dangerous mission leads to a showdown between good and evil which only love can conquer.

The show is directed by Chad Matchette, musical director Brent Hughes, choreography by Melissa Turpin, conductorBrent Hughes, and produced by Patti Volk. The Little Mermaid follows Align Entertainment’s smash hit productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
