Go under the sea with ATWAS
in `The Little Mermaid Jr.'
In a magical kingdom fathoms below, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. But first she'll have to defy her father King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula, and convince Prince Eric that she's the girl with the enchanting voice.
Adapted from Disney's 2008 Broadway production, Disney's "The Little Mermaid Jr." features all the hit songs you have grown to know and love: "Part of Your World," "She's in Love," "Kiss the Girl," and the Oscar-winning "Under the Sea."
