CEDAR HILL—Dive on in with the dazzling cast of Dallas Summer Musicals’ production of Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID when the fun-filled, timeless tale is presented by Dallas Summer Musicals at the Music Hall at Fair Park March 11-27. This colorful production will make its Fort Worth debut at Bass Performance Hall March 29 – April 3, presented by Performing Arts Fort Worth.

In a magical kingdom fathoms below, we meet Ariel, the little mermaid who is tired of flipping her fins and longs to be part of the fascinating world on dry land. Joining her are Sebastian, Ariel’s crabby sidekick; Ursula, the evil sea witch; Triton, King of the Sea; and the handsome and human Prince Eric.

Based on the Disney animated film and hit Broadway musical, THE LITTLE MERMAID is making its way back to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The show features all of the favorite songs like “Under The Sea” and “Part of Your World” as well as new songs written by Oscar-winning Disney composer Alan Menken, the mastermind behind productions such as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Pocahontas. Lyrics are by Howard Ashman and Glen Staler and book by Doug Wright.

Woods and Kunze are joined by Adam Garst as Flounder, Melvin Abston as Sebastian, Fred Inkley as King Triton, Tracy Lore as Ursula, Scott T. Leiendecker as Flotsam, Jeffrey Christopher Todd as Jetsam, Jamie Torcellini as Scuttle and Time Winters as Grimsby.
