Deleted Scene: Backstage with Sebastian
This scene was to be opened in a different way from the final version. Originally it started with the girls practicing for their parts backstage. Sebastian then comes in to give the girls some last minute instructions until coming to the realization that Ariel was missing. When upon asking where she was, Andrina told him that she was not anywhere to be seen, which quickly sends Sebastian into a panic.
Eventually Sebastian calms himself and tells the girls to get into their places while he stalls for time. However, when he tries to approach the king, a spotlight shines on him and his presence is made known to the entire concert hall. All Sebastian can do is sigh and get into his conductor's position as he prepares to start the show.
This scene was removed due to the creators deciding that it would be better to surprise the audience by keeping Sebastian and everyone else in the dark.
