PHOTO BLOG: A Day in the Life of Christina Hall of Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID at Paramount Theatre

Paramount Theatre in Aurora continues its season with Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID directed by Amber Mak. BroadwayWorld reached out to Christina Hall, who plays evil sea witch Ursula, to capture photos throughout a typical day leading up and including her performance - makeup and all. Here's what Ms. Hall had to share!

Christina Hall (Ursula) is a Houston native and graduate of Southern Methodist University, but has been performing in Chicago for the past 10 years. She has worked with numerous storefronts including Interrobang Theatre Project, Strawdog, Lifeline, Theo Ubique, Theater Wit, Bailiwick Chicago, The Inconvenience, as well as Equity houses at Porchlight, The Mercury, Chicago Shakes, the Goodman, and is currently performing as Ursula in "The Little Mermaid" at Paramount Theater in Aurora. She is a Jeff-Award winner who enjoys gardening, cooking (but not cleaning up after), to-do lists, raw cookie dough, and laughing at her boyfriend Diego's jokes .

THE LITTLE MERMAID runs through January 15, 2017 at The Paramount Theatre 23 East Galena Boulevard, Aurora, IL 60506. Tickets are available at (630) 896-6666 or
