THE WOODLANDS, TX, February 24, 2020 – National Youth Theater (NYT) announces their upcoming production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, a beloved tale based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s 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.

The talented cast, comprised of ages 8-19, presents the show April 30, May 2 and May 3, at The Woodlands College High School Park located at 3701 College Park Drive in The Woodlands.
