Broadway in the Park goes ‘Under the Sea’

'The Little Mermaid Jr.' brings classic Disney tale to Suwanee

POSTED: July 26, 2012 12:30 a.m.

Got a Disney princess in your home? She may want to see this.

Ariel, Prince Eric, Sebastian and evil Ursula will swim into Town Center Park for Suwanee Performing Arts’ 2012 Broadway in the Park production of “The Little Mermaid Jr.”

The performance, part of the Suwanee Performing Arts’ annual fundraiser, will be staged Friday and Saturday, July 27-28.

Adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production, “The Little Mermaid Jr.” features the hit songs “Part of Your World,” “She’s in Love” and the Oscar-winning “Under the Sea.”

Before the main show, an original one-act play, “Filligan’s Island” — a take on the popular 1960s television series “Gilligan’s Island” — will open the event each evening at 7 p.m.

Broadway in the Park is free and open to the public, but as the performances serve as the annual fundraiser for Suwanee Performing Arts, donations are encouraged.

“‘Mermaid’ is colorful, fun and so many people are familiar with the show that attendees will be able to sing along, making the experience even more memorable,” said Patty Etherton, SPA founder and creative director.

An “Island Market,” featuring vendors and activities similar to a cruise ship port, will be open from 4-7 p.m. at Town Center Park before each show.

Parking will be available at Town Center Park and along Main Street. Bring blankets and chairs for seating, but no alcohol may be brought into the park.
