    I may drive down, visit the family and try to check this out. I guess they sell tickets to students 60 minutes before curtain for $10 bucks. Not too bad a deal.

    Actors added to 'Little Mermaid'

    Disney musical opens at the Rialto

    By Gordon Cox

    March 20, 2007

    Sherie Rene Scott and Norm Lewis are among the Broadway names who'll star in "The Little Mermaid," Disney's legit tuner opening on the Rialto in December after a tryout in Denver this summer.

    Scott ("Dirty Rotten Scoundrels") will play evil octo-witch Ursula while Lewis portrays the sea king Triton. They join the previously announced Sierra Boggess, a vet of the Vegas production of "Phantom," as title amphibian Ariel.

    Other newly confirmed cast members include Tituss Burgess ("Jersey Boys") singing "Under the Sea" as busybody crab Sebastian, and Tyler Maynard ("Altar Boyz") as one half of bad-guy duo Flotsam and Jetsam.

    Based on Disney's 1989 animated retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen tale, legit version includes the score of the film (by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman) as well as new tunes by Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. Doug Wright ("I Am My Own Wife") writes the book.

    Francesca Zambello helms the production, which begins its run in Denver July 26.
