Disney's "The Little Mermaid" Interactive Live Stage Show Coming to LA
Audience Will Help Ariel Defeat Ursula!
A new interactive live stage show experience of Disney's "The Little Mermaid," produced by SOUND STAGE LIVE!, is set to run at the El Segundo Performing Arts Center from March 15-18.
SOUND STAGE LIVE! is the first-ever immersive musical theatre experience that combines live actors, projected animations that surround the audience, and interactions between the audience's mobile device and the live show.
"The Little Mermaid" stars Chassey Bennett; and is directed by Karl Warden. The four-day run will be hosted by YouTube sensation Todrick Hall, and those who purchase VIP tickets will have the chance to meet Todrick, attend a special Q&A, and have front row seats.
Unlike traditional theatre, this new format encourages patrons to pull their cell phones out, rather than put them away. There will be a red carpet, themed snacks and games in the lobby, before the interactive show begins. SOUND STAGE LIVE! is a social experience in which participants can share with friends.
Brother and sister producing team Jeff and Beth Cason bring 20+ years of experience to unveil this unique event to life. Jeff Cason, CEO and Creative Producer remarks, "We're bringing cutting edge technology and storytelling together to put our guests in the middle of the action. Your phone will let you see and hear the fish under the sea, join the musical chorus that get Ariel and Eric to fall in love, and even help Ariel defeat Ursula with the power of the trident."
"We are reinventing musical theatre for a generation who loves to interact with their entertainment, not just consume it," adds Beth Cason, COO and Co-Producer for SOUND STAGE LIVE! "It will be an unforgettable experience the audience will want to share with friends and family."
The pre-show will include host Todrick Hall's fan favorite videos of his performances; as well as a lip sync battle in which guests can join Todrick onstage, showcasing their own talents. The El Segundo Performing Arts Center is located at 640 Main Street, El Segundo, California 90245 (near LAX). General admission tickets are $29; Upgraded seats are $79; and VIP seats are $129.
