The Homestead Playhouse is excited to announce the production of “The Little Mermaid Jr.” coming this spring! We invite residents, neighbors and friends to audition for this colorful musical.
Based on the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a fun love story for the ages. This fishy fable will capture your heart with irresistible songs, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”
Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.
