Journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid, Jr.” adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production. 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.
