My daughter and I went under the sea with Ariel for The Little Mermaid at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.

The Little Mermaid is based on the beloved Hans Christian Andersen story and the Disney Film. This musical is brought to life beautifully by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken’s music and an amazing cast.  The Little Mermaid tells the story of Ariel, a young mermaid who longs to leave her life under the sea for life in the world above.  This extraordinary cast brings your favorite characters to life, and the amazing set designs transport you under the sea in this magical fairy tale.

The talented team of set designers has outdone themselves with sets that bring the sea and human world to life.  From Ursula’s underwater lair to Prince Eric’s ship, to the castle ballroom; you forget you are in a theater and transported to the sea below.  The mer-cast are suspended in the air as they swim so elegantly through their ocean world.

The incredible music with your favorite songs, Under the Sea, Kiss the Gir”, and Part of your World, help tell this beautiful love story.

Alison Woods is perfectly cast as Ariel, her amazing voice brings Ariel to life, and transports you under the sea.  Alison captures Ariel’s innocence and curiosity so beautifully and has a voice that sends chills down your spine.  Alison’s voice draws you in immediately, and you cannot take your eyes off of her when she is on the stage.

Melvin Abston brings the beloved character, Sebastian to life with so much charisma and flair.  His voice is smooth, and his witty timing is impeccable. Tracy Lore is the sea witch, Ursula.  Her voice and sass draw you in, and you find yourself rooting for Ursula at times.   Eric Kunzel is cast perfectly as Prince Eric; Adam Garst as Flounder; and Jamie Torcellini as Scuttle are spot on as these two lovable characters.

To see my daughter’s smile grow with each moment and to have her say this was for favorite musical to date was a true testament to the cast for bringing her favorite Disney movie to life.

This musical has a great diverse cast and such a magical set design that it’s sure to delight both young and old.
