Audience members are invited to take a dip with TheaterWorks July 13 through 22. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” is a love story for the ages and will capture audience hearts 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.
