What's on in Thurrock

The Little Mermaid by Rare Productions

Thursday 10 November 2022, 7:30pm to Saturday 12 November 2022, 6pm

Beautiful mermaid Ariel should be a happy girl. She lives in an enchanted undersea country, her father is a King, and she has the most beautiful singing voice. But she is a passionate, headstrong teenager, and wants what she cannot have, to live on land.

When she falls in love with a handsome human prince, Ariel is more determined than ever to gain a pair of legs. But her only option is to defy her furious father, and bargain with Ursula the Sea Witch, giving her voice as the price of entry onto dry land.

With the help of Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and officious court composer Sebastian the crab, Ariel must wordlessly gain Prince Eric's love within 3 days or lose her soul to the ambitious witch!

An amateur production by Rare Production, based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairytale and the wildly popular Disney film, this musical staging of The Little Mermaid features a funny and fanciful book by Doug Wright, with the beloved score by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Glenn Slater in an expanded but completely faithful form.

The show features the rambunctious and persuasive 'Under the Sea', the romantic expectation of 'Kiss the Girl', the anthem to longing and belonging, 'Part of Your World', and much much more.

There are 4 performances:

  • Thursday 10 November, 7:30pm
  • Friday 11 November, 7:30pm
  • Saturday 12 November, 2pm
  • Saturday 12 November, 6pm
