Musical theater group performing a Disney classic

Get Your Wigle On to perform The Little Mermaid at the Severn Theater

Tickets are still available for Get Your Wigle On’s performance of Disney’s extravaganza The Little Mermaid at the Theater Severn, Shrewsbury.

The show begins Thursday, July 7 and continues through Saturday, July 9.

The two-act musical production is based on the 1989 Disney film and the 2008 Broadway musical.

It takes place in the theater’s main auditorium and will feature a stunning musical score, a plethora of local talent, fabulous costumes, original choreography and special effects.

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale and popular Disney film, Ariel, the youngest daughter of King Triton, wishes to pursue the human prince Eric into the world above, negotiating with the wicked sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. .

But the market isn’t what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to wordlessly win Prince Eric’s love in three days – or lose his soul to the ambitious sea witch.

The role of Princess Ariel will be played by Izzy Oliver who joined Get Your Wigle On in 2015.

The Little Mermaid will mark Izzy’s final appearance on stage in Shropshire before beginning her musical theater training at Urdang Academy in London in September.

Izzy is joined on stage by a cast of 30 local performers including: Shrewsbury Secondary School music teacher Emily Floyd as Ursula, Severn Hospice social worker Diane Drummond as Sebastian, Will Monek-Evans as Prince Eric, Christian Lugtu as Scuttle, Ollie Gupta as King Triton, Aled Houghton and George Wright as Flounder, Ross Wigley as Chief Louis, Amy Tennant, Hannah Schwartzer, Eloise Jones, Mia Mulford, Daniella Williams, Kim Willoughby and Regan Belton as Ariels sisters, Doug Williams as Grimsby and James Broxton and James Archer as Flotsam and Jetsam.

The Little Mermaid runs in the main auditorium of the Severn Theater from Thursday 7th July to Saturday 9th July.
