It's Our Turn: Cherishing a Chanhassen childhood

Email News Alerts

This past weekend, I traveled to the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre with a friend and her cousin to see its newest production: The Little Mermaid. I’d grown up both watching Disney movies and going to Chanhassen performances, so this was the ultimate collision of my childhood.


So naturally, I was super excited, especially since I’d seen Beauty and the Beast at the Chanhassen a few years ago and it was nothing short of spectacular.
