The Hurrah Players, Virginia's leading family theatre company, presents Disney's The Little Mermaid under the direction of Hugh R. Copeland, the founder and artistic director of the Hurrah Player's Family Theater Company and performing arts academy. The Little Mermaid is a 1989 American animated musical romantic fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and Walt Disney Pictures and loosely based on the Danish fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christen Andersen. A stage adaptation of the film, in which a mermaid princess named Ariel dreams of becoming human after falling in love with a human prince named Eric (with a book by Doug Wright and additional songs by Alan Menken and new lyricist Glenn Slater) opened in Denver in July 2007 and began performances on Broadway January 10th 2008.
Since its incorporation in 1984, The Hurrah Players have been, and will continue to be, a shining example to both our students and our community that theatre arts can be a vehicle not only for educational enrichment but for the emotional and social well-being of the participants as well.
