Intimate, clever, enchanting, playful, and fun for all ages! The Mystic Ballet’s production of The Little Mermaid will have you dancing in your seat, tempted to sing along to nostalgic Disney songs.
When arriving at Mystic Dark Room, guests are greeted by bronze statues situated throughout the hillside property. Upon entering the venue an attendant escorts guests up a winding staircase to their seats at leather clad sofas lining the back wall of the show room. There’s not a bad seat in the house…in fact all seats are front row and provide a unique perspective of the show.
The professionally trained and international cast are all dancers of the Mystic Ballet Company. They utilize the entire room as their stage using artistic movement as “props”. The musical score from the Broadway production, costumes, makeup and artistic lighting set the scene and draw you in. An over-sized metal gate-like structure is the backdrop of the set and is creatively used as Prince Eric’s ship, Ursula’s lair, and King Triton’s undersea kingdom.
The Mystic Dark Room provides a hip metro-like atmosphere, giving the feeling that you’ve transported from our seaside village to a Manhattan lounge. Seeing a show there is highly recommended! Little Mermaid – Dance Me a Story wraps up with three remaining shows, March 24th 4pm and March 25th 1pm and 4pm. The Nutcracker Spectacular will return in December and GRAB is an experience for adults in October.
