We’re all familiar with the story... Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human, Prince Eric, to the world above. She bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs, but the bargain is not what it seems – Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab, to ensure that her dreams come true – both above, and below, the waves. Disney's The Little Mermaid is filled with all of the things that families have loved about the animated classic with some of the best‐known songs from the past 30 years.

Valley Performing Arts’ production brings the Broadway sensation to the Valley in a big way. Over forty talented men, women, and young people, supported by more than thirty experienced crew members, will bring this classic and beloved tale to life right before your eyes. With one‐of‐a‐kind special effects, including “flying” and “swimming” cast members, wonderful digital backdrops, and colorful costumes galore, you’ll believe that you’ve been transported under the sea and to a kingdom far away. All of the best‐loved songs are there… ”Part of Your World”, “Under the Sea”, and “Kiss the Girl”... plus new original songs to add to the joy and adventure of this wonderful family favorite. In sea or on land, this show is one you won’t want to miss.

The Little Mermaid opens March 22nd and runs through April 14th. Ticket prices are $25 for Regular Admission, $23 for Seniors 65+/Students 18 and younger. The production will be at The Glenn Massay Theater on the Mat‐Su College Campus, 8295 E. College Drive, off of Trunk Road in Palmer.
