'Disney's The Little Mermaid' offers a Family Night on Broadway

Join the Times-Union Center on Opening Night of Disney’s The Little Mermaid for the 15th. Annual Family Night on Broadway.  The FSCJ Artist Series is partnering with Jax4Kids, PRI Productions, Savor…Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Public Library, and many others, to create special pre-show activities on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. and during intermission.  All Family Night activities, including children’s games, face painting, photo ops, coloring stations, crafts, a special guest appearance and more, are free with paid show admission tickets.  Kid-friendly-foods will be available for purchase from Savor…Jacksonville, the Times-Union Center’s official caterer.

Based on the Disney animated film and hit Broadway musical, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is making its Jacksonville debut.  The show features all of the favorite songs like: “Under The Sea” and “Part of Your World” as well as new songs written by Oscar-winning Disney composer Alan Menken, the mastermind behind productions such as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Pocahontas.  Lyrics are by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and book by Doug Wright.

Proclaimed by the Houston Chronicle as “colorful entertainment, wrapped up in an attractive production,” Disney’s The Little Mermaid is sure to charm audiences of all ages!  In a magical kingdom fathoms below, we meet Ariel, the little mermaid, who is tired of flipping her fins and longs to be part of the fascinating world on dry land. Joining her are Sebastian, Ariel’s crabby sidekick; Ursula, the evil sea witch; Triton, King of the Sea and the handsome and human Prince Eric.
