Treat Your Grandkids to a Special Performance of The Little Mermaid

Founded in 1987, the Plano Metropolitan Ballet provides high-quality dance performances at a price that is family friendly. Every year, the company puts on an original fairy tale production. This year, the Plano Metropolitan Ballet presents an original Fairy Tale Ballet: The Little Mermaid.

Join Ariel as she explores her world with the colorful characters under the sea and on stage at Courtyard Theater. In the Little Mermaid, a mermaid princess Ariel is fascinated with life on land. On one of her visits to the surface, she falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love, Ariel makes a dangerous deal with the sea witch Ursula to become human for three days. But when plans go awry for the star-crossed lovers, the king must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter.

Director Kevin Rogers, who is directing his third Disney show for CTH, says he’s always wanted to bring “The Little Mermaid” to life. He said, “It has a great story line about the repercussions of a love-struck girl’s decisions, how those decisions affect those around her, and a father’s inability to accept the fact that it’s time to let her venture out on her own.”

All performances are open to the public, but we do have special features to our Girl Scout performances. There will be an embroidered mermaid patch for every Girl Scout and an autograph session with the dancers after the performance. Don’t miss out on this magical fairytale!

At The Artistry at Craig Ranch Apartments in McKinney, Texas, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Friday!
