5 Ways The Little Mermaid Musical Was Different From The Movie

As I am writing this, I just got back from seeing my high school alma mater's performance of The Little Mermaid. While it was a great performance, I noticed several things different in the musical from the movie that I couldn't help but write about.

1. More Singing

This is to be expected as it is a musical. But there are a whole bunch of songs compared to the small amount of songs in the movie.

2. Ariel's Singing

Remember when Ariel loses her voice and doesn't talk for a good half of the movie? In the musical, she still sings even without her voice. It's set up so you are aware that it's just in her thoughts so she is not actually singing.

3. Aunt Ursula

In the musical, Ursula and Triton both have Poseidon as their father. This was in the original movie script but was taken out. Hoever it resurfaced in the musical.

4. Scuttle Stole The Show

Scuttle plays a much bigger role in helping Ariel. He has a couple more songs that he's involved in, including his own song, "Positoovity."

5. Max Isn't In It

In the musical full of animals, the dog just isn't there. Instead, Eric finds Ariel by himself without the help of his furry friend.

6. The Order Is Different

The order of events is different. For example, the "Under The Sea" scene takes place after King Triton destroys Ariel's grotto.

No matter these differences, I love both versions of The Little Mermaid and am glad to have experienced them.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
