The Little Mermaid

July 13-22 | Gyder Theater

This July, take an adventure under the sea!

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”

Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

The PCPA is a joint venture with the City of Peoria and Theater Works.Theater Works, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, serves as the anchor tenant and creates engaging theatrical and educational experiences, and manages the 20,000 square foot facility. The Peoria Center for the Performing Arts consists of a 274 seat main stage auditorium, a flexible 60 seat black box theater, two classrooms, an elegant lobby, dressing rooms, backstage support areas, and office space for Theater Works.
