BHS Theatre Guild presents Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’
Burnsville High School Theatre Guild closes out Season 62 with the classic animated film, Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.”
The story follows Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, as she pursues 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.
This fishy fable has captured the hearts of generations with its irresistible songs including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl,” and “Part of Your World.”
"We're thrilled to bring this beloved classic to our Mraz stage," director Erika Sasseville says. "Our talented cast, crew, and pit orchestra of more than 80 kids have been working hard to create a magical and memorable experience for our audiences."
Performances run May 11-13 and 18-20 at the Mraz Center for the Performing Arts, located at 600 E. Hwy 13 in Burnsville. Additionally, there is also a free preview for senior citizens at 4 p.m. on May 10.
Shows begin at 7 p.m., with Saturday matinees at 2 p.m. Doors open approximately 30 minutes before the show begins.
