MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Alabama Shakespeare Festival announced Wednesday its line-up of performances for the 2014-15 season, among them Disney's The Little Mermaid.

The season kicks off with a November 23rd preview of the heartwarming holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. Scrooge searches for redemption through a performance that features a magical evening of ghosts, spirits and goodwill.

In the new year, visitors to the Montgomery-based ASF theater will be treated to Always...Patsy Cline, an award-winning musical told by the Texas housewife whom "country music's greatest female singer" befriended before her death. The preview starts on January 13, 2015.

Opening just weeks later on January 24th, you can fall down the rabbit hole and join the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts as they encounter Alice in Wonderland.

On February 27th, the ASF cast will undertake Oscar Wilde's funny masterpiece of mistaken identities, meddling chaperones and madcap situations as they learn of The Importance of Being Earnest. This production is often hailed as one of the greatest comedies ever written.

"All the World's a Stage" and the audience will surely be packed in with the March 7th opening of As You Like It. This play is a merry romp with maidens in disguise, feuding brothers, couples falling in love and a rescue from a hungry lion in this Shakespeare classic.

Shakespeare's King Lear is next on the performance list with a preview starting on April 10th. It's a tale of a once noble monarch driven to ruin by family betrayal, treachery and regret and is considered one of Shakespeare's greatest works.

And the season closes with a play your young children will instantly recognize and hum along to. Previews being on July 8th for Disney's The Little Mermaid and the performance will include songs familiar to fans of the movie including Under the Sea, Part of Your World and Poor Unfortunate Souls.
