Come early!

If you have not purchased your tickets for The Little Mermaid, Jr. yet, DO IT NOW! The Box Office gets VERY busy in the last 1/2 hour before the show, and things get very backed up. If you have already purchased tickets and they are waiting for you, they will be on the Will Call table. If you have placed them on hold but NOT paid for them, you will need to go to the Box Office. Please don’t wait until 15 minutes before the show to come purchase your tickets…you may miss the beginning of a fantastic show!

From the Desk of Flounder

Posted on

Hello humans,

Flounder here! You guys will NEVER believe this. My best friend Ariel, who is the most talented mermaid under the sea wants to be a human ! She’s even taken me up to the surface. Scuttle, the seagull/human stuff expert tells us about all of the things Ariel finds. I would be more scared if he wasn’t so funny. Her dad is the king of the ocean, he was boiling angry when he found out about us going up there. He was so angry that he stuck us with this crustacean named Sebastian. King Triton said he would “watch over us”. What a crab! I think King Triton is afraid of the evil sea witch, Ursula. Triton probably noticed Ariel is distracted by something, she acts so fishy, it’s obvious! Whatever it is, I’m “shore” it’s really special. I might need some help figuring it out. I cant believe I’m asking this, but will you guys please come and help me? There might even be some super radical songs too! Come “sea” what happens with Ariel, Ursula, Sebastian, and me!

Lots of love,

Flounder
