OGDEN, UT-March 1, 2016- Continuing its season “The Best of Times is Now,” The Ziegfeld Theater presents Disney’s The Little Mermaid, a theatrical experience for the whole family.

In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. When she falls in love with a human, she enters into a bargain with Ursula, the evil Sea Witch, to make her dreams come true.

 

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slate, 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.”

 

Disney’s The Little Mermaid is directed by Morgan Parry, music directed by Daniel Pack, and choreographed by Kacee Neff.

 

The Ziegfeld Theater continues its fourth season in 2016 with a musical for the whole family.
