Take a trip under the sea with Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.” This fun-filled, timeless tale continues performances at Theatre at the Grove in Nuangola through July 10th.
The production takes place at the historic venue located at 5177 Nuangola Road in Nuangola. It is directed by Theatre at the Grove Artistic Director Michael Marone with choreography by Amber McKenna and musical direction by Christopher LaFrance.
