Under the sea: Rosary High School presents 'The Little Mermaid' Nov. 7-10
Join Ariel and her aquatic friends under the sea for "The Little Mermaid" Thursday through Sunday, Nov. 7-10, at Rosary High School, 901 N. Edgelawn Drive, Aurora.
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's "The Little Mermaid" is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."
The production team includes Megan Drahos, producer, vocal and orchestra director, and director Laura Biancalana, both teachers at Rosary High School.
The cast, crew, and pit orchestra includes more than 75 students from Rosary High School and Marmion Academy in Aurora. Music is provided by select members of the Rosary Symphony Orchestra, the Rosary Chamber Orchestra, and the Marmion-Rosary Band and some local musicians.
Show dates are 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7; 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8; 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10. Show tickets are $12, $10 for students and seniors.
Adults 21 or older are welcome to visit Ariel's Grotto before the show and during intermission on Friday and Saturday evenings for wine, beer and specialty cocktails. A family "Picnic Under the Sea" at $10/$5 is planned for 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Both events are fundraisers sponsored by the Rosary Fine Arts Boosters.
