The staff at Underwater Vogue is head over eels over the fashion sense of the stars of “The Little Mermaid.” What poise and urbanity! What elegance! What a sense of haute grouper!

To mark the Good Company Players’ regional premiere of the Broadway musical at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater, we present five fashion (fish of the day) plates from the costume-heavy show for our readers’ perusal. We know you’ll get a depth charge out of their aquatic style. And we offer a few personal tidbits to wet – um, whet – your appetite for this popular Disney show.

Note: All prices are in sand dollars.
