Shanice Palfrey as Ariel

The cast includes actors from across Perth, including Shanice Palfrey as Ariel, Jesse Angus as Prince Eric, Peter Shaw as Grimsby, Paul Treasure as King Triton, and Craig Griffen as Chef Louis. The cast and crew are now putting the finishing touches on the show, ahead of opening night - and the costumes and props are fantastic!

Audiences will be swept into the magical tale of the beautiful young mermaid who longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above, based on Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above and bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems and Ariel needs the help of her colourful friends Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

The heart-warming tale of Ariel will swirl to even greater life with its colourful costumes and gorgeous scenery—and the songs people love and know.
