August 8-18, 2018
In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. MTWichita is delighted to revisit this fanciful all-family musical, newly revised by its award-winning team to provide even more enchantment.
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 Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this spectular production will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”
(Special 2 pm matinee on Saturday August 18 may be attended by children ages 3 and older. For all other performances in the MTWichita season, due to length of performances and for consideration of other patrons, children must be at least 5 years of age to attend.)
