About The Little Mermaid
Join Frequent Flyers® Student Company and Intensive Training Program Saturday, June 5th for a new rendition of The Little Mermaid! Explore deep ocean caverns filled with merfolk, crabs, and, of course, disco jellyfish. Experience this aerial dance take on a classic with new music, characters, and a unique story that hasn't been told.
Deep beneath the ocean waves lies the kingdom of Atlantica, where merfolk and fishes live in harmony under the just rule of their queen. Her children, especially the youngest, are adventurous and curious about the world above and the mysterious humans who live there. The inhabitants of Atlantica strive for creating the best kingdom, despite the threats of the evil sea witch and her disco jellyfish. Love, adventure, and aerial dance are combined in a one-of-a-kind show using video technology to enhance the already talented performers. This show will be a splash!
Join us on Zoom Saturday, June 5, for a pre-show introduction/soiree at 5:30pm and a Q&A after the show at 7:30pm! A Zoom link will be sent prior to showtime. Keep an eye on your inbox!
Note: Once your show link is activated, you have 24 hours to watch the performance an unlimited number of times. After 24 hours, your link will be deactivated.
