Audrina Brown has recently inherited the Lovers' Landing Beach Hotel in a southern state on the Gulf of Mexico from her recently deceased father. The hotel, which has become a popular wedding destination, has been promoted over the years as "the home of sandy toes and salty kisses" and, as a result, seems to have acquired some kind of mystique.

Her Uncle Bubba, who has worked his whole life a the hotel, seems to be a "Jack of all trades" who in addition to his maintenance duties, has developed a variety of extra-curricular activities. Audrina quickly discovers that these activities, without exception, appear to be illegal. They run the gamut from cash prize bingo, to a rum distillery, to off track betting. You name it, Bubba is doing it.

Checking into to the hotel is Beatrice Rutherford-Smythe, the epitome of the "New England blue bloods", who arrives with her daughter Traci to check the place out for Traci's wedding.

Two other guests are checking in today; Traci's fiance, Peter Mudd, and a mysterious Douglas DuPont. Through a mix up of room numbers, a series of mistaken identities ensues. When Candy the receptionist gets roped in, it introduces a roller coaster of events.

Throughout the play, one question remains unanswered. Are these events a result of true love, or is it the mystique of sandy toes and salty kisses at the Lovers' Landing Beach Hotel?

In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above.

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."
 
Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.
 
Disney's The Little Mermaid offers a fantastic creative opportunity for rich costumes and sets, as well as the chance to perform some of the best-known songs from the past 30 years.
