This splashy musical adventure is sure to have audiences singing along with their favorite Disney songs! Based on the animated 1989 film of the same name, and the classic by Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, our show is about a mermaid who dreams of living in the the world above the sea and gives up her voice to find love.

There is wheelchair access and parking for persons with disabilities to the immediate left and right of the backstage area of the theater building. There is a ramp that accesses a continuous route to the ADA area in front of the actual stage. ADA seating is provided on a first-come first-served basis. There is room for approximately 16 wheelchairs in the first row right in front of the stage. Companions of ADA attendees are welcome to sit in the first row as long as it does not displace others in need of ADA access.
Come early to access the ADA parking spaces adjacent to the theater. ADA parking spaces are limited, so you may need to drop off individuals requiring ADA access and circle around to find a regular parking space. Individuals can still take advantage of the ADA access and space availability in front of the stage without an ADA parking spot.
