The Little Mermaid follows the journey of a young mermaid named Ariel who is the youngest of King Triton’s 7 daughters. She is obsessed with the human world, and is always collecting treasures. Ariel falls in love with Prince Eric, a human, and the show follows her journey as she gets him to fall in love with her. Along the way she receives help from her friends Sebastian the crab, Flounder the fish, and Scuttle the seagull. However she also has an encounter with the evil sea witch Ursula. Come watch the show to find out how the story ends!
The cast of The Little Mermaid have been working on this show since the beginning of January and have put in a lot of work to make it the best it can be. Bryce Thompson, a junior, playing the Pilot and a member of the ensemble says that his favorite part of OLu’s theatre program is “meeting a different group of people.” Sophie Busch, a junior, playing Aquata describes that her favorite part about being in musicals is the “bonding we experience off stage” because it is there that she has met some of her best friends. Ethan Kaiser, a senior, playing King Triton says that people should come see the show because so many students have put in “a lot of time and work to make the show amazing.” Avery Warren, a senior, playing Scuttle says that her favorite part of the show is the long tap number called Positivity. Avery is really excited for the opportunity to “show off her tapping skills” and thinks everyone should come see the show since there is “no other live performances available right now.”
