Enjoy irresistible classics such as “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World,” as Ariel finds her heart’s desire.

Get out of the Cold with a Good Book
On December 19, from 1 to 2 p.m., join the Wednesday Afternoon Book Club at the Blair Memorial Library to read from “Standard Deviation” by Katherine Heiny.
Graham Cavanaugh’s second wife, Audra, is everything his first wife was not. She considers herself privileged to live in the age of the hair towel, talks non-stop through her epidural, labor and delivery, invites the doorman to move in and the eccentric members of their son’s Origami Club to Thanksgiving. She is charming and spontaneous and fun but life with her can be exhausting. In the midst of the day-to-day difficulties and delights of marriage and raising a child with Asperger’s, his first wife, Elspeth, reenters Graham’s life. Former spouses are hard to categorize–are they friends, enemies, old flames, or just people who know you really, really well? Graham starts to wonder: How can anyone love two such different women? Did he make the right choice? Is there a right choice?
