Melrose Performing Arts Center
BLP is so excited to dive under the sea in Summer 2022! 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.”
Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining 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.
Disney’s The Little Mermaid offers a fantastic creative opportunity for rich costumes and sets, as well as the chance to perform some of the best-known songs from the past 30 years.
Artistic Director’s Thoughts: ‘Little Mermaid’ is perhaps my favorite of all Disney’s titles. I have such fond memories of watching the film as a child. I am SO excited to bring this to our stage in what will be our biggest production yet. So huge that in place of our usual two summer youth productions, we’re focusing on one large show with a six-week process. I am excited for the opportunities this provides: more workshops, more games, etc. Join us for a summer of magic, flying, fun, and more! And just think of the amount of aquatic puns I can make!
FLYING EFFECTS PROVIDED BY ZFX
ZFX is the industry leader in flying effects and after a great successful working relationship during ‘Mary Poppins’ we are thrilled to bring them back to create the illusion of “swimming” as we go under the sea.
PLEASE NOTE: Our middle school productions will continue to adhere to CDC and State recommendations re: COVID-19 and variants. We will have revised policies and plans for Summer 2022 in the new year.
