Cresson Lake Playhouse hosts the Twelfth Annual Children’s Theatre Arts and Education Festival as we proudly present “Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.”  The show is under the direction of Mrs. Holly Smith and Mrs. Lisa Sukovitch serving as music director.

In a magical kingdom fathoms below, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to 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 Prince Eric that she’s the girl with the enchanting voice.

Ariel, youngest daughter of King Triton, is dissatisfied with life in the sea. She longs to be with the humans above the surface, and is often caught in arguments with her father over those "barbaric fish-eaters". She goes to meet Ursula, the Sea Witch, to strike a deal, but Ursula has bigger plans for this mermaid and her father and convinces Prince Eric that she’s the girl with the enchanting voice. In a magical kingdom fathoms below, Prince Eric pursues a mysterious voice despite the protests of his guardian, Grimsby. Far beneath the waves, the crab Sebastian has prepared a concert for that features King Triton’s youngest child, Ariel, but she goes up to the surface with her best friend, Flounder. There, they learn about the human treasure she has found from the seagull Scuttle. Meanwhile, the sea witch Ursula and her lackey eels, Flotsam and Jetsam, bemoan their exile and plot to regain power from Triton using Ariel as bait. King Triton scolds Ariel for going to the surface and appoints Sebastian as her chaperone.  Ariel retreats to her grotto and dreams of living on land. Upon discovering her collection of human objects, Sebastian extols the virtues of the ocean.
