A Musical by Alan Menken, Glenn Slater and Doug Wright

July 13 to 24, 2016

All performances of The Little Mermaid are sold out!

Occassionally tickets are released at the last  minute so you can come 15-20 minutes prior to the performance you would like to attend and try to get tickets but there is no guarantee.


Our 11th-annual kids-for-kids musical will be the Dubuque premiere of the full-length version of the Disney classic, a musical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story. In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. She bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.


The show will be performed by two casts of more than 40 kids each, ages 7 to 16, and the backstage crew includes another 100 kids ages 7 to 18 who are running lights and sound, making props and costumes, building sets and working in the box office and concession stand.
