The production serves as CSC’s “Holiday Spectacular”; a family-friendly show fit for sharing with the whole family during the Holiday season (Please note that CSC productions do still have an age requirement of 5 or older). Disney’s The Little Mermaid follows the journey of Ariel, a young mermaid with an unquenchable thirst for exploration and her quest to find true love, and where she truly belongs; in the sea she’s always known or the mysterious land of the world above. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's stories and the Disney animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a love story appropriate for all ages. The production features music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a book by Doug Wright.
The production features all of the songs from the Disney film and more, including “Under the Sea”, “Kiss the Girl”, and “Part of Your World” all performed by a cast made up of industry professionals, Centenary University Students, and local actors from the community.
