(MANAHAWKIN, NJ) -- Following a three year “pandemic pause,” Bellarine Theatre Company is presenting Disney's The Little Mermaid with four performances from August 12-14 at the Stafford Township Arts Center. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, this is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

Bellarine Theatre sets the stage with Ariel (Lindsay Paige Spitzer) who longs to venture to the human world, against her father King Triton’s (Chris Huch) command. As Ariel struggles between her love for her home, and her love for Prince Eric (George Rodrigues), she is joined by her young fish companion Flouder (Summer Sprague), her fellow curator of human stuff, Scuttle the Seagull (Mia Spallina), and her father’s right hand crab, Sebastian (Jose Gonzalez). Feeling hopeless, she accepts a deal from her estranged aunt, Ursula (Hadley Magaziner) that turns her human, but with a catch, she said has to give up her voice, and potentially lose her soul. 

The musical features 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."
