Aurora Theatre is taking this holiday tradition Under the Sea, with the production of Disney’s family favorite The Little Mermaid. Join Ariel, Flounder, King Triton, Scuttle, Sebastian and all the rest for an evening of entertainment under the stars. This fishy fable follows Ariel, the youngest daughter of King Triton, who angst her father’s wishes pursues the human Prince Eric in the world above sea level. When she makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs, the bargain is not what it seems and Ariel could lose much more than her prince. Complete with a full orchestra, experience the magic of irresistible songs like “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl,” and “Part of Your World,” performed live!

Free to the public, Lawrenceville’s PRELUDE event will be held on the Lawrenceville Lawn at 210 Luckie Street. Bring the whole family and a picnic dinner to enjoy during the show. Lawn seating begins at 5:00pm for the 7:00pm performance. Libations from McCray’s Tavern and food trucks parked around the Lawn with a variety of cuisine offerings will be available.

 Reserve a table of VIP seating for 6, only $100!
