Disney's The Little Mermaid JR.

Disney's The Little Mermaid JR.
From classic literature, to the Academy Award-winning film and Broadway musical, Ariel’s undersea journey is a beautiful love story for the ages.

Journey "under the sea" with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney's The Little Mermaid JR., adapted from Disney's Broadway production and the motion picture featuring the enormously popular Academy Award-winning music and delightfully charming book and lyrics.  Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories, Disney's The Little Mermaid JR. is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance.

In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home - and her fins - behind and live in the world above. But first she'll have to defy her father King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she's the girl whose enchanting voice he's been seeking.

Written to flow seamlessly between land and sea, Disney's The Little Mermaid JR. provides plenty of opportunities to bring these locations to life through creative movement and configurations. The fantasy of being underwater means your entire cast and crew can let their imaginations run wild.

little mermaid jr.

Hello,I was considering Willy Wonka for my elementary Drama Club, but now that I see Little Mermaid, Jr. is available for licensing, I am thinking about choosing it instead. I work with a large group (my Seussical, Jr. had 81 participants).I have one boy who I would really like to feature - he was Jojo in last year's Seuss Jr. Since I am not too familiar with the Little Mermaid songs for this version, can anyone tell me which male part would have the most featured singing? I would really like to showcase his talent, and it will be his last year in elementary school, so I want to make sure I at least consider him for the appropriate role.Thank you!

Don't be fooled - Little Mermaid is HARD

October 9, 2012
We just finished performing this show this past weekend, and let me tell you - it was a difficult run. The kids did "okay", but were very upset because of the difficulty of this show. TONS of music and cues. TONS of set changes. Special lighting effect, sounds cues, lots of costumes, difficult staging requirement - and high G abound and can't really be changed or fixed. Just hope you have some high singing sopranos! Just a lot of stuff to do and take care of.BUT the worst part, was the score. It is nearly impossible to play (I don't know who the arranger was - but they obviously *don't* play the piano. A 3rd of it was hard, a 3rd was very hard, and a 3rd of it was impossible to play. Literally impossible because of the writing. Notes out of the reach of your hands and very difficult cross patterns and runs. You would think they would have "dumbed it down" a bit for the general music market, but they didn't - so be prepared to use the CD). Also, many, many mistakes and typo in the actual score. So spend a day going through it with a fine tooth comb to make sure you are doing it right. I had kids in tears on the first show day - and we were *well* prepared. Lovely show, just very, very hard to pull off in the general music market. sigh.

elementary musical suggestions

October 23, 2012
I am really stressing over choosing my musical this year. I am looking for something appropriate for 3rd-5th grade for up to 40 students. The last two years we have done Alice in Wonderland Jr. and Willy Wonka, Kids. I perused Jungle Book Kids (too easy), Once on this Island Jr. (too hard), Aladdin Kids (a possibility) and the Little Mermaid, Jr. (my favorite so far). People have also suggested Seussical and the Phantom Tollbooth which I don't know anything about. I am blessed with a lot of strong boys this year in 5th grade and I want to find something that features them all. The Little Mermaid seems to have a lot of parts, but looks difficult, especially the part singing. Aladdin Kids looks more doable, but wouldn't feature all my "stars" and might not challenge them enough. Any suggestions or insights are appreciated!
