Northern Virginia Players Present Disney’s Little Mermaid

Portion of proceeds benefit Hurricane Sandy victims.

In a magical kingdom under the sea, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. When she falls in love with Prince Eric after saving him from a shipwreck, she visits the sea witch, Ursula, and trades her voice for three days as a human. Can Ariel and her best friends Flounder, Sebastian the Crab, and Scuttle the Sea Gull get the prince to give her "true love's first kiss" before Ariel turns back into a mermaid forever?
