WASO celebrates 30 years under the sea
West Australian Symphony Orchestra makes Disney’s The Little Mermaid part of your world during the April school holidays. In an Australian premiere event, the complete film will play on the giant screen at Crown Theatre Perth on Friday 26 April at 5pm Saturday 27 April and 2pm & 7pm Saturday 27 April.
In celebration of the 30 year anniversary of the release of Disney’s The Little Mermaid (1989), Alan Menken’s uplifting, Academy Award-winning score will be brought to life in three magical performances.
Rebellious 16-year-old mermaid Ariel (Jodi Benson) is fascinated with life on land. On one of her visits to the surface, which are forbidden by her controlling father, King Triton, she falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love, Ariel makes a dangerous deal with the sea witch Ursula (Pat Carroll) to become human for three days. But when plans go awry for the star-crossed lovers, the king must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter.
Sing-along to all your favourite songs including Under the Sea, Part of Your World and Kiss the Girl as you re-live this classic ‘tail’ of Ariel.
This is the perfect event for the whole family as part of your school holidays or night out with your friends reminiscing with the movie of your childhood.
Don’t miss your chance to experience this classic film live in concert as your West Australian Symphony Orchestra takes its beautiful music to a whole new level. Bookings essential: visit http://www.waso.com or phone 136 100.
