[image-2]Before mermaid toast was a thing, before mermaid tail blankets were selling on Amazon, before there were DIY lists instructing under-the-sea wannabes on the dos and donts of dying their land-locked tresses, well, there was Ariel, a creature of the water who wanted to make it to the shore.

Based on a popular Hans Christian Andersen tale and Disney’s Academy Award winning animated film, Charleston Stage’s production of The Little Mermaid follows the journey of Ariel as she deals with all the trials and tribulations of coming of age, underwater.

Charleston Stage’s production of the now staple childhood film kicks off the theater company’s 40th season. You can buy adult single tickets for the show starting at $31. Peruse all ticket options at charlestonstage.com.
