Laconia, N.H. (June 21, 2021) – “Be our guest” and have “Wishes granted” as premier Disney cover band, the Little Mermen, brings kids and families on their feet for a live action sing-along show at the Lakeport Opera House. The Little Mermen will perform two shows on Sunday, July 11 including a matinee at 3:30 p.m. and an evening performance at 7 p.m.
“Disney-lovers young and old are in for a real treat with the Little Mermen show,” said Lakeport Opera House venue director Tim James Everett. “This nostalgic family-friendly show will have everyone singing out loud to their Disney favorites with lots of fun surprises during the performance.”
The band’s repertoire covers rock versions of all 82 years of the Disney canon including favorites from Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Mary Poppins and Frozen. The group performs in full costume with band members dressing up as beloved film characters.
Founded by singer and songwriter Alexis Babini, the Little Mermen throws enchanted events that are jam-packed with nostalgic fun and sing-alongs. Hailed by BuzzFeed and Time Out New York as the premiere Disney cover experience, the show has won praise from none other than Disney.com and Alan Menken, composer of Beauty & The Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Tangled and others, himself. Spectators are encouraged (but not required) to dress as a Disney character for a chance to win a prize including a meet and greet with the Little Mermen.
With a 200-seat layout built for comfort, style and mobility, every seat in the house has unobstructed views, cocktail service and the best sounds system for an experience unlike anything else in the area. Over $1 million was invested in the Opera House renovation which opened on June 11 after being closed for 60 years. Originally built in 1882, this venue mixes modern design elements with historic charm for a unique cultural experience. The Opera House is home to live musical performances, theatre productions, comedians, magicians as well as being host to community-focused events, weddings, and private and corporate gatherings. Once a mainstay of Laconia’s Lakeport community, the Opera House is on center stage in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region.
