The Nashville Children’s Theater has made quite a splash with Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
Directed by Ernie Nolan and backed by a live orchestra, NCT delivers a crowd-pleasing performance of the beloved tale of a 16-year-old mermaid who dreams of life on land. The musical is based on the mega-popular Disney animated film from 1989, which in turn is based on a story by Hans Christian Andersen.
The hour-and-15-minute run time includes many familiar themes, sending an empowering message to kids that one can alter the course of his or her future.
Robin L. McGee’s exquisite costuming creates a vivid, magical fairy tale world. Catherine Birdsong stars as Ariel. The dynamic Piper Jones delivers a deliciously devilish Urusla and Corbin Williams gives a solid performance as Prince Eric.
The show runs until December 23rd, so not a lot of time to see this colorful, visual delight. Children and immediately mesmerized by the colors, the songs and the magic of Disney. Make plans for a trip “under the sea” with your little mermaids and sea urchins. You wont be dissapointed!
