Journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends in SOOP’s Highlights from The Little Mermaid JR! Adapted from Disney’s Broadway production and the motion picture and based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories, The Little Mermaid JR. is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make to live the life we want to. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home — and her fins — behind and live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince her friends that she belongs on the land! Our Alphabet-SOOPers will become “part of this world” as they work on character development, ensemble building and body movement – all culminating in a presentation for family and friends!
