    WALDOBORO — The Medomak Valley Players will open “The Little Mermaid,” an MTI Production, Friday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m., in the Ronald E. Dolloff auditorium, at Medomak Valley High School, in Waldoboro. Performances of the show will be November 3, 4, 10, 11 at 7 p.m., and November 5 and 12, at 2 p.m.

    An “Under the Sea” afterparty for patrons to visit with the “Mermaid” characters will be held in the cafeteria following the Sunday matinee on November 5.

    Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages, according to Medomak Valley Players, in a news release. “With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture the hearts of everyone with its irresistible songs, including Under the Sea, Kiss the Girl and Part of Your World.”

    Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining 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 colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

    The production team includes director Peter Stuart, assistant director Maida Cordero, costume director Kerry Weber, tech director Matthew Kopishke, vocal director, Jonathan Baldwin, and choreographer Alexia Hilt.

    “In addition, the ‘Thursday Night Sawdust Society’ contributed their time and efforts to the set and Robyn Sykes has been invaluable in organizing concessions, the Under the Sea party, and assisting in many other ways,” said the release.

    The cast features Lizzy Harriman as Ariel, Luis Cordero as Prince Eric, Anna Weber as Ursula, Kelsey Payson as Flounder, Kyle Hall as Scuttle, Chris Harris as Sebastian, Finn Kelly as King Triton, Liam Smith as Grimsby, Sophia Harvey as Chef Louis, and Jonah Smith as Pilot.
