The Little Mermaid, presented by the Actors Repertory Theatre of Simi, begins its 3rd weekend tonight! Tickets are selling out fast, you don't want to miss it!
Below is an excerpt from the first review by Cary Ginell:
"'[...] Disney’s stage version of the classic animated film, tells the now familiar story of Ariel, a mermaid princess who finds love in “the world above,” but not before risking her soul and her voice in the process. Actors’ Repertory Theatre of Simi is staging the show through April 2 and its production is resplendent, highlighted by a superb cast, opulent costumes and splendid choreography.
[...] Andrew Metzger, a real-life cartoon character, plays the part of the un-“flappable” seagull, Scuttle. Metzger prowls the audience before the show, bargaining for random objects in purses and handbags. Metzger’s improvisatory abilities are difficult to contain, and Daniels has smartly allowed him a quota of ad libs per performance (a brilliant one referenced “Hamilton”). Metzger’s Act II opener, “Positoovity,” one of the newer songs, is a special delight.
