The BDT Stage presentation of the charming musical is magical.
My granddaughter, Lauren Heaton was very pleasantly surprised to see her old friend, Cole LaFonte (Prince Eric) who was our beverage server. He was joined on stage by The Little Mermaid Ariel (Lillian Buonocore). The entire production was spectacular. It was filled with creativity.
Also in the the cast are: Flounder (Chaz Lederer), Sebastian (Anthony P. MGlaun/Kenny Moten), Ursula (Alicia K. Meyers), King Triton (Scott Severtson), Scuttle (Bob Hoppe), Flotsam, (Brian Jackson), Jetsam (Matthew D. Peters), Chef Louis (Scott Beyette), and Grimsby (Brian Burron).
The premise of the musical: Ariel, the Little Mermaid, believes in her heart that she is meant to be a human, Prince Eric is thrown overboard from his ship, Ariel rescues him and he ends up on the beach. Eric and Ariel are flown up to the rafters. Eric then needs to find a bride. He tries to find Ariel with no success, so he decides to hold a contest to find the princess with the best voice. Eventually he finds Ariel; however, Ariel’s evil Aunt Ursula has made a deal with the mermaid and has taken Ariel’s voice. When he relocates Ariel, she can’t speak or sing. She has only a few days to get a kiss from Prince Eric.
The costumes are brilliant and reminded me of “The Lion King.” Many puppets are used in the production.
“The Little Mermaid” runs at BDT Stage 5501 Arapahoe Ave., in Boulder through Sept. 8, 2018. For tickets and information call the box office at 303-449-6000.
As I’ve said in the past, BDT Stage is one of the best entertainment bargains in the metro Denver area. The actors are the servers and the food is delicious. Head on over to Boulder for this show. You won’t be disappointed.
