Theater spotlight: Go back under the sea with Ariel
Pittsburgh Musical Theater will present “Disney's The Little Mermaid,” based on the hit 1989 musical film, March 15 to 25 at the Byham Theater in Pittsburgh.
Based on Hans Christian Andersen's beloved folk tale, the story introduces the audience to King Triton's youngest daughter, Ariel. In love with human Prince Eric in the world above the ocean, she bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, trading her mermaid's tail for legs and giving up her voice.
Ariel soon finds she needs help from her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.
Children the world over have learned the musical's songs, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”
Show times are 7:30 p.m. March 15 to 17, 23 and 24, and 2 p.m. March 18 and 25. Tickets are $9.25 to $54.75.
