DGS Theatre Presents the Children's Play, "The Little Mermaid, Jr."

The Downers Grove South Theatre Department presents Disney’s, "The Little Mermaid, Jr." on Friday, May 26 at 7 p.m. in the DGS Auditorium.

In a condensed depiction of the Broadway smash hit, we meet Ariel, a mermaid who is curious about the world on the shore. After striking a deal with the sea witch, Ariel heads to land to find her true love, Prince Eric. Upon discovering her missing, King Triton sends Sebastian to look after her. The only problem is, Ariel must get a kiss from her true love in three days’ time, or she risks giving her soul to Ursula forever. On this journey, Ariel and her friends will sing classic songs such as “Part of Your World” and “Under the Sea,” but you will be sure to tap your toes to a few new songs as well! Will Eric be dying to try and “Kiss the Girl”? Come find out!

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors citizens, and free for children under the age of 13 or students with a valid Downers Grove South student ID.
