The Paramount Theatre production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid is directed and choreographed by Amber Mak, music direction by Tom Vendafreddo and undersea creatures created by master puppeteer Jesse Mooney-Bullock.
The cast features Kari Yancy as Ariel.
“Disney's The Little Mermaid is the kind of production that has Amber Mak, Tom Vendafreddo and the entire Paramount creative team chomping at the bit,” said Jim Corti, Artistic Director, Paramount Theatre. “Bringing the underwater surroundings to life, creating puppets and costumes that transform humans into undersea creatures, developing a system that will allow mermaids to swim and arranging a score for the Paramount orchestra that will give audiences chills are exactly the challenges we thrive on.”
Disney’s The Little Mermaid, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and book by Doug Wright, is based on the original 1837 Hans Christian Andersen tale and the Disney film written and directed by John Musker and Ron Clements.
It debuted on Broadway in 2008.
