Little Mermaid comes back to TUTS Houston Sept 10-13
I LOVE introducing my sons to the theater. Mr J got his chance with Scooby Doo Live! Musical Mysteries (which as corny as it was I really enjoyed).
My Personal Connection
What I love about the Little Mermaid is that I remember seeing it in the theaters when I was in high school.
I owned the CD (had to think there for a moment – yes, they did have CDs way back then) and would drive through out town singing ‘Part of Your World’.
At the time The Little Mermaid movie was the perfect high school love story.
But the first time I saw the theatrical version I realized that there was so much more to it. It was much more about growing up and trusting your parents and their wisdom.
At the same time it spoke to parents about having to learn to let your children go and trusting them to make the right decisions. (much more complex than love in the school hallways that I saw as a young girl)
