The Little Mermaid
April 20 - 22
Starring the Voices of Jodi Benson, Samuel E. Wright, Rene Auberjonois


A mermaid princess makes a Faustian bargain with an unscrupulous sea-witch in order to meet a human prince on land. 

Join us 'Under The Sea' as The Strand brings one of the all-time classic Disney animated blockbusters back to the Big Screen, with the soundtrack and score piping through our 45 speaker surround-sound system!


This was the last Disney animated feature to use hand-painted cels and analog camera and film work. 1,000 different colors were used on 1,100 backgrounds. Over one million drawings were done in total.


The Little Mermaid
 had been a Disney property since 1941. Walt Disney planned to include the much darker Hans Christian Andersen version of the tale in a planned anthology film of the fantasy author's works. After a bitter strike by the animators that same year and the increasing focus on wartime propaganda shorts, the initial version of The Little Mermaid was shelved in 1943.

There are several shots of Ariel, sitting on a rock, in a pose reminiscent of the "Little Mermaid" statue that sits in Copenhagen harbor.

Originally, Sebastian was to have an English accent. It was lyricist/producer
 
Howard Ashman who suggested he speak with a Caribbean accent. This opened the door to calypso-style numbers like "Under the Sea", which won the Academy Award.
