Retreat to The Johnson and see Disney’s The Little Mermaid at the Brisbane Arts Theatre. The Little Mermaid is regularly voted among the most loved Disney films of all time, and now Brisbane Arts Theatre brings a live musical adaption starring local actors. Theatre patrons will have the chance to meet Ariel and the rest of the cast, when the characters come out to the courtyard after each show to meet the children and sign autographs, a 50-year tradition of Brisbane's oldest theatre.
