(NORTH HALEDON, NJ) -- Mary Help of Christians Academy presents The Little Mermaid from March 29-30. In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. 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, bargaining 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.
Performances take place on March 29th at 7:30pm and March 30th at 1:30pm and 7:00pm. All performances are held in the MHC Academy - Gymnasium (Scared Heart Building) located at 659 Belmont Avenue in North Haledon, New Jersey. Tickets are $15 and available for purchase online.
