FORT LEE, Va. (Sept. 18, 2014) -- Journey “Under the Sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends when the KidKapers production of “The Little Mermaid, Jr.” opens Oct. 3, 7 p.m. for three performances.

Director/Set Designer Craig McFarland has created a colorful production full of familiar characters, featuring a cast of 37 young and young at heart actors.

In a magical underwater kingdom, a beautiful young mermaid, Ariel (Jessica Beaudet) longs to leave her ocean home-and her fins to live in the world above.

To fulfill her dream, she’ll have to defy her father King Triton (Jimmy Van Elsacker), make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula (Dylan Tipton), and convince the handsome Prince Eric (Troy West) that she’s the girl whose enchanting voice he’s been seeking.

Miles Barrow as Sebastian, Ian Fikel as Flounder, Bennett Buetow as Grimsby, Sara Moore as Scuttle, and an additional 29 actors complete the cast.

Joining McFarland in creating this charming production is costume designer Kym Mincks, choreographer Mary Burns Ball, sound designer John “Red” Redling, and stage manager Katie Farley.
