BCHS Musical

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. Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above and bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea and make a choice that will let her live happily ever after.

It’s a classic show that’s entertaining and enjoyable for the entire family! Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID will be presented Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 21, 22 and 23 at 7 pm; a matinee is also scheduled on Saturday at 2 pm. Tickets are on sale now at the Van Singel box office Monday through Friday 12 to 5 pm.
