Curtains rise March 20-23 at Anoka Middle School for the Arts Fred Moore campus.

“The Little Mermaid, Jr.” takes place in a magical kingdom beneath the sea, where Ariel – a beautiful young mermaid – longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above.

But first, she’ll have to defy her father (the king of the sea), escape the clutches of an evil sea witch, and convince a prince that she’s the girl with the perfect voice.

This classic Disney tale contains songs from the Academy Award-winning animated feature film as well as three new songs from the Broadway show.
