DISNEY'S "THE LITTLE MERMAID"
BDT STAGE: June 1 – Sepmber 8
BDT Stage’s production of DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID is sheer theatre magic from curtain to curtain. The magician who created this evening of delight is director/choreographer Matthew Peters. His casting is phenomenal, and his team of techies unbeatable.
Lillian Buonocore, who plays Ariel, enchants us!
Cole Lafonte’s performance in the role of Prince Eric is unforgettable. Both actors come to us from the theatre arts department at CSU. Their onstage chemistry will make you smile.
Alicia K. Meyers is hilariously wicked as Ursula, the Sea Witch.
Chas Lederer is smashing as Flounder!
Bob Hoppe’s Scuttle, the sea gull is sensational. Anthony P. McGlaun (Sebastian) gets to delight us, singing "Under the Sea" and "Kiss the Girl!"
Scott Beyette’s performance in the role of Chef Louis is a dazzler.
Add to this list stellar performances by Scott Severtson as King Triton and Brian Burron as Grimsby!
Both the kingdom beneath the sea and the one on land perfectly mirror the animated Disney film.
Amy Campion’s scenic design is a breath
Linda Morken makes her costumes shimmer, sparkle and flash. This artist’s costume design, creating the illusion of scales, fins and their requisite stage movement, is genius!
Karl Hermanson’s puppets for Flounder,Scuttle and Sebastian delight us in a way that brings up memories of Julie Taymor’s “The Lion King.”
The music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken sounds better than ever under the baton of musical director Neal Dunfee.
I could say more about this glorious production, but absolutely refuse to add spoilers.
You, and your entire family – and the rest of the neighborhood - need to experience this for yourself!
