The timeless show is based on the animated 1989 Disney film and the classic story by Hans Christian Andersen about a mermaid, Ariel, who dreams of the world above the sea and gives up her voice to find love.
IHA’s 2016 production will be produced by Lucille Conzo and directed by Jodi Capeless. The choreographer and associate director is Kimberly Galberaith, the musical director is Ed Ginter, and the set and lighting designer is Ryan Bell. The musical features a sizeable cast of principle characters, supporting cast members, and a large ensemble—all of whom will be impressing the audiences with their outstanding singing, dancing, and acting talent.
Children are invited to come and meet Ariel and Eric during the first matinee performance on November 13. Additionally, IHA students are encouraged to bring their grandparents to the Grandparents’ Day matinee on November 20, where they can enjoy refreshments at intermission and take advantage of reduced ticket prices of $10.
