The Little Mermaid
Originally written by Hans Christian Anderson

A musical based on the animated 1989 Disney film and the classic story by Hans Christian Andersen about a mermaid who dreams of the world above the sea and gives up her voice to find love. Its underwater setting and story about aquatic characters requires unusual technical designs and strategies.
