AHS Drama Club is proud to present its 2022 Spring Musical – the Little Mermaid
FOR THE ANTIGO TIMES
The story was originally told by Hans Christian Anderson with the current stage adaptation having music written by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and book by Doug Wright. The stage performance retains the most beloved songs and moments from the original film while adding further character development to the layers of the centuries’ old story with very memorable (and hummable!) songs.
A tale of fathers and their daughters, of men coming to age, and friendships that stand up to the rigors of water/land relationships; mermaid Ariel (Logan Preul), her father King Triton (Colin Koeppel), Prince Eric (Emmett Braun), friends Flounder (Nathaniel Pyeatt) and Scuttle (Matt Antone-Vance) keep the audience on their toes as young merfish, Ariel, stretches her fins and is determined to have a relationship with Prince Eric — even if it means involving the evil Ursula (Peter Chruimsky)!!
The plot thickens and the audience is left wondering, “What will happen?” “Will Ariel end up with Prince Eric?” “What will happen to the Mer-world as all of these forces come together??” A ticket to this extravaganza of sights, sounds, color and teenagers’ never-ending energy, can add up to a perfect evening of memories for you and your family, friends, and spouses — no matter how big or how young Your Gathering is!!
The lyrics and music make for an enjoyable evening at the Volm Theater in Antigo, WI. Songs like “Part of Your World”, “Kiss the Girl”, and “If Only” will be running through your minds for quite some time.
Tickets go on sale March 1st in the Antigo High School Commons and will sell weeknights from 5:00pm-7:00pm and one hour before each show begins.
