(SKOKIE, Ill.) — NEWS: Music Theater Works shall present “DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID” at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie (9501 Skokie Blvd, Skokie, IL 60076) from June 2, 2022 to June 26, 2022 as the second production of the 2022 Season.
About The Show
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic Disney animated film, “DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID” is a classic and beautiful love story for the entire family. 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 Broadway gem will capture your heart with its irresistible song favorites, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”
From the moment you step into the theater, this immersive production will make you feel part of Ariel’s world. When she disobeys her father, King Triton, and makes a deal with the evil witch, Ursula, Ariel thinks her dreams have come true. But when the bargain is not what it seems, Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to save her true love and restore order under the sea.
