The Little Mermaid

Belgrave Heights Christian School presents

The Little Mermaid

A cast of 70 students from Years 2-12 at Belgrave Heights Christian School are pleased to present Disney's The Little Mermaid! 

POSTPONED Thu 12 Aug - Sat 14 Aug | Burrinja Theatre
NEW DATES Thu 4 Nov - Sat 6 Nov | Burrinja Theatre

Beautiful mermaid Ariel should be a happy girl -- she lives in an enchanted undersea country, her father is a King, and she has the most beautiful singing voice. But she is a passionate, headstrong teenager, and wants what she cannot have -- to live on land. When she falls in love with a handsome human prince, Ariel is more determined than ever to gain a pair of legs. But her only option is to defy her furious father, and bargain with Ursula the Sea Witch, giving her voice as the price of entry onto dry land. With the help of Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and officious court composer Sebastian the crab, Ariel must wordlessly gain Prince Eric's love within three days -- or lose her soul to the ambitious witch! Based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, and the wildly popular Disney film, this musical staging of The Little Mermaid features a funny and fanciful book by Doug Wright, with the beloved score by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Glenn Slater in an expanded but completely faithful form, featuring the rambunctious and persuasive 'Under the Sea,' the romantic expectation of 'Kiss the Girl,' and that anthem to longing and belonging, 'Part of Your World.'

Due to the impacts of lockdowns and re-opening capacities the school has decided to postpone their production "The Little Mermaid" at Burrinja until early November. Your tickets have been automatically transferred to the new dates.
