Under the Sea

Today was the long-awaited “Sing-Along Little Mermaid” at the Castro Theater. We met Noe, Siobhan, their parents and grandparents in the Castro along with a sea of little 3-7 year-olds. We were surprised that Ariel herself was there to take our tickets and hand out a goodie bag full of props to use during the movie. It was both Noe and Siobhan’s first experience with a real movie theater and they started a lifetime of movie-going in style at the beautiful movie palace that is the Castro Theater.

The movie was fun, though it seemed a bit dated now –––maybe because of Buddy Hackett’s voice. Noe did great, belting out the tunes, especially when you remember that she can’t even read the words they put on screen. They let the little girls, almost all of whom had come in costume (as Ariel, of course) parade on stage prior to the show, and even though Noe had not arrived in costume, she bolted for the front as soon as they announced the parade of princesses. She told the emcee that she was “Princess Noelani.”

    That is so cute. What a lucky couple of girls! My favorite part was the self-assurance of “Princess Noelani”.
