2014 The Little Mermaid & ‘Movie’ Dance Spectacular

    What a wonderful, colourful performance.  Amazing choreography and professional performances from all of the students.

    The part of Areial being beautifully portrayed by Eloise Moore, King Triton strongly dance by Millie Cracknell and The Evil Ursula superbly portrayed by Tarah House.

    Ariel is a mermaid princess who with her best friend Flounder collect human artifacts and goes to the surface of the ocean to visit Scuttle the seagull. Ignoring the warnings of her father (King Triton) and court musician (Sebastian the crab) that contact between merpeople and humans is forbidden, 

    One night, Ariel, Flounder and an unwilling Sebastian travel to the ocean surface.  A sudden storm hits, during which everyone manages to escape in a lifeboat except for Eric. Upon waking, Eric has a vague impression that he was rescued by a girl with a beautiful voice; he vows to find her, and Ariel vows to find a way to join Eric.

    A pair of eels, Flotsam and Jetsam, convince a crying Ariel that she must visit Ursula the sea witch, if she wants all of her dreams to come true. Ursula makes a deal with Ariel has to give up her voice, which Ursula magically takes stores it in a nautilus shell. Ariel’s tail is transformed into legs and Sebastian and Flounder drag her to the surface.
    Ursula takes the disguise of a beautiful young woman named “Vanessa” and appears onshore singing with Ariel’s voice. Eric recognizes the song and, in her disguise, Vanessa/Ursula casts a hypnotic enchantment on Eric to make him forget about Ariel.

    Triton chooses to sacrifice himself for his daughter and is transformed into a poor unfortunate sole. Ursula takes Triton’s crown and trident and uses her new power to gloat, transforming into a giant, and forming a whirlpool that disturbs several shipwrecks to the surface.

    Later, after seeing that Ariel really loves Eric and that Eric also saved him in the process, Triton willingly changes her from a mermaid into a human using his trident. She runs into Eric’s arms.
