The Little Mermaid splashes on stage

What Michigander isn’t thinking about how nice it would be to be under the sea — or at least by the sea — in November and December?

The Civic Theatre is offering the next best thing with its production of Disney's The Little Mermaid Nov. 17–Dec. 3 at the Civic Auditorium, 329 S. Park St. This big splash of a family musical tells the tale of the mermaid Ariel, who falls in love with a human prince and makes a deal with a witch to be temporarily transformed into a human.

And while you’re tapping your toes to such tunes as "Kiss the Girl" and "Under the Sea," you might see a familiar face or two (such as TV and radio personality Lori Moore as Ursula).

Tickets are $15-$35. For tickets or more information, visit or call 343-1313.
