The Little Mermaid and More!
Choreographed by ADT’s resident choreographer, Sara Sanford, “The Little Mermaid” is certain to delight children of all ages and the young at heart. “The Little Mermaid” is based on Hans Christian Anderson’s classic fairytale about a mermaid willing to give up her life as a mermaid in order to find true love and happiness and gain a human soul. Wanting a life on land she is rebuked by her father and turns to the conniving sea witch who demands a heavy sacrifice. In return the Little Mermaid must exchange her beautiful voice for human legs with which she can fulfill her dreams.
“The Little Mermaid and More!” will include a beautiful excerpt from the classical ballet, Coppelia and Artistic Director Kitty Seale’s delightful “Invitation to the Dance” in the Saturday evening and Sunday performances, as well a newly choreographed work by Janie Alford. Sara Sanford’s “Stardust” will also return to the stage in these performances.
“The Little Mermaid and More!” is sponsored by Wind Creek Hospitality, Jim Wilson & Associates, Regions Bank, Owen and Loree Aronov, Pickwick Antiques, The Daniel Foundation, Montgomery Advertiser, Cumulus Broadcasting and is funded in part by the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
