Stage Agent’s Synopsis of “The Little Mermaid”
Beautiful mermaid Ariel should be a happy girl — she lives in an enchanted undersea country, her father is a King, and she has the most beautiful singing voice. But she is a passionate, headstrong teenager, and wants what she cannot have — to live on land. When she falls in love with a handsome human prince, Ariel is more determined than ever to gain a pair of legs. But her only option is to defy her furious father, and bargain for the help of Ursula the Sea Witch, with her voice the price of entry onto dry land. With the help of Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and officious court composer Sebastian the crab, Ariel must wordlessly gain the love of Prince Eric within three days — or lose her soul to the ambitious witch!
Based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, and the wildly popular Disney film, this musical staging of The Little Mermaid features a funny and fanciful book by Doug Wright, with the beloved score by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Glenn Slater in an expanded but completely faithful form, featuring the rambunctious and persuasive “Under the Sea,” the romantic expectation of “Kiss the Girl,” and that anthem to longing and belonging, “Part of Your World.”
About Elkhorn Community Theatre
The Elkhorn Community Theatre was founded on the objective to involve as many members of the community of Elkhorn as possible by participation in committees, by performing, or by attending the productions. It is our hope that providing this outlet will give the citizens an opportunity to bond as a community, and to improve the quality of life in Elkhorn.
The Elkhorn Community Theatre, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Nebraska corporation, was founded in April 1998 upon the idea that every community can benefit from participation in the arts. Theater brings together many different talents and specialties, from the obvious, such as acting and singing, to the not-so-obvious, such as construction, choreography, lighting specialties, sound specialities, costuming, etc.
