Lea Michele is trading in her legs for fins.

In honor of the 30th anniversary of The Little Mermaid, The Hollywood Bowl is bringing back a live production of the classic Disney film, The Little Mermaid, for two days — and the Glee actress is set to play princess Ariel, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Joining Michele as part of the cast is Harvey Fierstein (Ursula), Ken Page (Sebastian), Peter Gallagher (King Triton) and Leo Gallo (Prince Eric). To help recreate the iconic story on stage, the actors will be accompanied by a full orchestra while the original film plays on Hollywood Bowl’s movie screen.

The cast and orchestra will be performing all of the favorite songs from the Oscar and Grammy-winning soundtrack, including: “Kiss the Girl,” “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World,” and “Poor Unfortunate Souls.”

The live concert performance of The Little Mermaid first debuted three years ago, each year becoming bigger and better, the Los Angeles Times reported.

This year, the Bowl plans to transform into the Hollywood Fish Bowl Dive-In Theater, which will immerse the audience under the sea with animated “living scenery” that director and co-producer Richard Kraft called a “game changer,” and a full program of aquatic-themed previews highlighting future attractions and old snack bar commercials.

The performance takes place May 17 and 18 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
