The Little Mermaid Jr, a Remote Performance

Aloha Everyone,

The Little Mermaid Jr. is a stage musical produced by Disney Theatrical. It is based on the animated Disney film called The Little Mermaid which is based on the classic children’s book by Hans Christian Andersen.

The remote performance we watched was produced under a licensing agreement with the Music Theater International and Disney Theatrical Productions.

The performers from several high schools and middle schools in the Nanakuli, Waianae and Mililani on the island of Oahu, Hawaii recorded their scenes separately. Two main characters, Ariel and the human prince, had beautiful speaking and singing voices. Restricted by the pandemic, The Little Mermaid Jr. is not a stage performance but rather a video format platform. A big congratulations and credits go to the director and the editor who were able to put together the fragment parts of numerous performers into a strong visual that were impressive and also made sense.

Aloha -- Cathi
