Goldsboro Ballet: The Little Mermaid
March 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Turnage Theatre Presents – Goldsboro Ballet: The Little Mermaid! Goldsboro Ballet has brought out all of the stops with all new, extravagant costumes, whimsical scenery that will fully immerse the audience in the Ballet. Surprises await around every corner.
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Goldsboro Ballet presents it third debut of “The Little Mermaid Ballet.” This fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible melodies, love story for all ages and recognizable tunes that will have you dancing and singing along with the Ballet in your seat.
Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter is a precocious teenager who wishes to pursue the human World. Against her dad’s wishes, Ariel journeys beyond her own world to the surface, where she falls in love with Prince Eric, a handsome human. Foolishly, the little mermaid enters into an agreement with the evil sea witch Ursula in order to become human herself. 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 wistfully melancholy ending of the original Hans Christian Andersen story is dispensed with in favor of a joyously happy ending-but not before a spectacular climactic confrontation between Ursula and Triton. The obligatory comic relief is handled by such freshly minted characters as Sebastian the Crab and Scuttle the Seagull. The beauty of the classical Ballet is scene throughout but accentuated with the beautiful Flounder, Ariel’s best friend the fish.
With only 1 production of the Ballet you will not want to wait to secure your tickets! The music, choreography, dancing, costumes and props will bring the forever loved story to life!
