The parody achieved success during its London run, bagging six Off West End Theatre Award nominations, one of the highest tallies for any show in the past year.

The cast includes Shawna Hamic as Ursula and Ru Paul's Drag Race UK star River Medway as Ariel, plus a host of other actors, such as Thomas Lowe, Allie Dart, and Julian Capolei.

The ensemble show is written by Robyn Grant and Daniel Foxx, with music, arrangements and orchestrations by Tim Gilvin.

Abby Clarke manages the set, costume, and puppet design, while choreography is by Melody Sinclair, and lighting design is taken care of by Adam King.

The show is "one of the funniest musicals we’ve ever seen”, according to West End Best Friend, who gave a five star rating.

Curtain Call Reviews was equally complementary saying: “This sassy spectacle had us by the tentacles.”
