Except for her fishy friends and watery world, the Little Mermaid is a lot like any teenager in love.  She resists her father’s (King Neptune) rules and doesn’t want to listen to good advice from her friends. Based on the beloved Hans Christian Andersen tale, the CYT original version of this story has a happier ending, but still includes the wicked Sea Witch, Octavia the Octopus and her gang of Shark henchmen.  Ariel’s best friend, Cha Cha, is a Latina lobster with a fiery spirit who tries to keep the lovesick mermaid from dangerous mistakes. Come take a dive into a land beneath the sea!

Their Narnia odyssey teaches them lessons of courage, unselfishness and wisdom. After all, once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen of Narnia.
