THE BLOCKBUSTER DISNEY MOVIE COMES TO LIFE in this awe-inspiring Paramount Theatre production that’s perfect holiday fun for all ages. Ariel, Scuttle, Sebastian and the entire underwater world come to life as they embark on Ariel’s quest for love. With Paramount’s legendary full-orchestra, exquisitely-crafted underwater creatures (some towering over 13 feet!), a stunning set and heartwarming songs, this is the musical production Chicagoland will be talking about this holiday season.

TAKE IN ALL THE HOLIDAY CHEER from the giant Christmas tree in the lobby to the decorative lights, wreaths, music, hot chocolate and more. The Paramount Theatre this holiday season: give us a few hours of your time, and we’ll give you a lifetime of memories. This timeless tail begins November 23 through January 15.
