Hey, Disney vacationers and Little Mermaid lovers! There’s some exciting news making waves over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that you won’t want to miss. The park is set to unveil a dazzling new show this fall, “The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure,” and I’ve got the inside scoop on what’s in store in this The Little Mermaid show update!
Disney has just lifted the curtain on some magical concept art, giving us a glimpse of the undersea world they’re bringing to life. The artwork is nothing short of enchanting, featuring fan-favorites Sebastian and Flounder, along with Prince Eric’s loyal dog, Max. But that’s not all – the art also previously teased a beautifully reimagined “Kiss the Girl” scene, complete with an array of other creatures like whimsical frogs and charming birds, adding to the spectacle.
Additionally, Disney revealed it’s on the lookout for puppeteers to animate these delightful characters. If you’ve ever dreamed of working your magic in a Disney production, this could be your moment. They’re casting a wide net, seeking individuals ranging in height from 5’2” to 6’3” (depending on the respective roll), with experience in bringing stories to life through puppetry. Whether you’re adept with hand-and-rod, mechanical, or even full-body parade puppets, your skills could help shape this immersive experience.
This new show is set to replace the beloved “Voyage of the Little Mermaid,” which we said goodbye to after the park’s shutdown for COVID-19. But fear not, Disney Live Entertainment is going all out to ensure this new chapter captures the heart and imagination of Ariel’s story. Expect stunning set pieces, groundbreaking effects, and a fresh design that dives deep into Ariel’s view of our world.
“The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure” will feature toe-tapping musical numbers straight from the film, including classics like “Part of Your World” and “Poor Unfortunate Souls.” It’s an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza that promises to be an unforgettable journey under the sea.
But the magic doesn’t stop there. Disney is also casting for the roles of Ariel and Prince Eric, with Ariel requiring a lyrical pop soprano voice and Eric, a non-singing role, needing that charismatic, fearless touch. So, if you’ve got what it takes to bring these iconic characters to life, now’s your chance to shine.
As the theater’s transformation continues, the anticipation builds for what’s shaping up to be a breathtaking addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. “The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure” isn’t just a show; it’s a testament to Disney’s commitment to innovation, immersion, and storytelling excellence.
So, keep your calendars marked and your fins ready, because Ariel’s world is about to get a whole lot more magical this fall. Whether you’re a die-hard Little Mermaid fan or a lover of all things Disney, this is one adventure you won’t want to miss!
