Bonus Vlog: The Little Mermaid – Live on Stage

We REALLY enjoyed this production of The Little Mermaid play performed by our local Pineville High School’s theater department.  The costumes were AMAZING and the performance was just wonderful!  The play includes the song favorites that we all know and love, but there were several songs I had never heard before.
