Erika Greenup has created unique and interactive set designs for this year's Fall Liberty Theater Production of Disney's "The Little Mermaid." Through costuming and puppetry, the stage fills with under-the-sea life.

DAYTON-This year's fall musical at the Liberty Theater is Disney's "The Little Mermaid," a story familiar to many of us from two Disney movies and the older, original fairy tale.

It's the story of a young woman growing up, following her dream, and finding herself. It's also the story of a loving parent learning to understand who their child has become and letting them go into the world. And finally, it's the story of two families with different cultures learning to accept each other as their children get married.

This live performance is a spectacle of entertainment, with poignant and funny musical numbers, fantastical settings, and colorful imagery. First-time Liberty Theater directors Devin Greenup and Natalie Knudson and set and costume designer Erika Greenup bring a fresh approach and unique ideas to Liberty's stage. Theatergoers will be amazed at the artistry of this year's production.

There will be 13 performances from Thursday, November 9 to December 2. Opening night is Family Night, with a special low price. More information is available on the theater's website,
