A lot is going on under the sea that humans cannot see. But thanks to the Disney classic The Little Mermaid, we get a glimpse 🐠 

The musical tale of a mergirl who dreams of our world returns to The 5th Avenue Theatre in celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the original film, running for one month. At its core, the fairy tale is about friendship, family, home, and heart. It follows Ariel, Sebastian, Flounder, Scuttle the Seagull, and Prince Eric on an epic journey where ya girl has to convince the man of her dreams that she’s the one. Plus it has perhaps the best Disney villain of all time. The BIG, BAD, and PURPLE DIVA Ursula. 

Diana Huey will reprise her role as Ariel. In 2016, she became the first Asian American to take the part professionally. Showing that, like with the recent live-action film, representation matters. Because everyone can harness their inner merperson

Pro tip: The 5th offers a free show talk on September 16th called “What’s Under the Wig Cap.” Hair and makeup designer Kelley Jordan will show how she makes customized wigs for the fishy friends on stage—and put one lucky audience member through a metamorphosis
