"The Little Mermaid" is a popular fairy tale by the Danish poet and author Hans Christian Anderson about a young mermaid willing to give up her life in the sea and her identity as a mermaid to gain a human soul and the love of a human prince.

Written originally as a ballet, the tale was first published in 1837 and has been adapted to various media including musical theater and animated film.

The iconic story of Ariel's journey to become a human is presented live, with all your favorite songs, including, "Part of Your World" and "Kiss the Girl," along with new ones that will make you fall in love with this tale all over again. Join Ariel, Sebastian, Prince Eric and all your favorite characters as you travel "Under the Sea" for the musical, Disney's "The Little Mermaid."
