A beautiful mermaid confined to a world under the sea longs for legs so she can walk on land with the prince she has fallen for. And so begins an adventure filled with music that is familiar to Disney fans everywhere.

If you wish you could be part of that world, you can see Civic Theatre's production of “The Little Mermaid” starting Saturday.

Directed by Ranae Butler, the G-rated musical stars Rebecca Nelson as Ariel and Billy Dawson as Prince Eric.
