The Little Mermaid
Adapted by Mike Kenny
From the original story by Hans Christian Andersen

October 16 to December 13, 2019

The Little Mermaid Production

When a sea witch offers a beautiful mermaid princess the chance to make her dreams come true, it comes at a price. The Little Mermaid sacrifices key parts of herself—her tail and her voice—for legs, in the hope of winning the heart of the prince and gaining a soul. Filled with music, movement, and humor, two actors explore all of the roles in this unique retelling of the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale. Best for ages 5 and up.
