Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.
Get ready to go under the sea this July and join Moonlight Musicals for our Academy production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.! The Little Mermaid, tells the tale of Ariel, the youngest daughter of King Triton, who wishes to be part of the human world above and pursue the human Prince Eric. Ariel bargains with the evil sea witch Ursula and trades her tail for legs. Ariel soon finds out this bargain is not what it seems and will need the help of her friends Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to help restore order under the sea. The Little Mermaid is based on the beloved fairy tale and animated film and features the songs we all know and love, “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, setting the standards and rules of modern musical theatre. In a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, a high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful background for Curly, a charming cowboy, and Laurey, a feisty farm girl, to play out their love story. Their romantic journey, as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road, contrasts with the comic exploits of brazen Ado Annie and hapless Will Parker in a musical adventure embracing hope, determination and the promise of a new land.
Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!
