Directed by Greg Parmeter
Disney's The Little Mermaid is based on the classic Disney film, with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and book by Doug Wright. Ariel, a young mermaid, falls in love with a human prince against her father's wishes. She strikes a deal with Ursula, the evil sea witch, for a pair of legs. But the bargain is not what it seems and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends to save her father, restore order to the ocean, and find the love she's been searching for.
