CYT "Little Mermaid" & "Fiddler on the Roof"

The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid seeks adventure in exploring the human world. Her first warning to "get her head out of the clouds and back under water where it belongs" comes by way of shark attack when she is taking treasures from a sunken ship. As the story progresses, the warnings become stronger. Because she succumbs to the temptations of the human world and falls in love with Prince Eric (at first sight, no less), she gives her voice to the sea witch in return for legs. For her freedom, her father must sacrifice his title as king of the merpeople to the sea witch. In true fairy‐tale‐style, everything works out in the end. The villain is killed and the spell is broken, but Ariel certainly learns a lesson about choosing adventure. In the end, she is able to become human and marry Prince Eric. Leaving her father and sisters is a sacrifice she makes naturally. For "bright young women / Sick o’ swimmin’ / Ready to stand," we are to assume that standing at the altar will satisfy their need "to explore that shore above."
