Disney’s The Little Mermaid at Old National Centre
The family-favorite musical based on the classic Disney animated movie takes place fathoms below the surface, where mermaid Ariel is tired of life under the sea and longs to see what the world is like on dry land. Her journey includes her buddy Sebastian, evil sea witch Ursula, the King of the Sea, and a handsome human prince. The show runs through Sunday, and tickets start at $25.
Half of this all-new program will feature choreography by the DK dancers to their favorite musical Divas. They will workshop their pieces at the 2016 IndyFringe Festival in August, then fine tune them with David in the DK studios. This is an exciting opportunity to see another side of the DK dancers’ talents. DK artistic director David Hochoy will also create a world premiere to one of his favorite singers, Michael Feinstein; and Nicholas A. Owens will create a new work set to songs by Aretha Franklin.
