Our Next Show

The Little Mermaid

April 13th - April 29th
Tickets now on sale!

Under the sea lives a mermaid who longs for legs and the chance to dance among humans, while on land lives a prince who dreams of living among the fish! In this original re-telling of the fairy tale, we meet these classic characters and their plucky younger siblings for an ocean adventure about finding your home, and finding your voice.

Adapted by local playwright Jennifer Reck, Directed by Allison McCall, and based on the Hans Christian Anderson story, The Little Mermaid is performed for children and families by our company of young actors. The Little Mermaid is produced with support from the Margaret E Burnham Charitable Trust.
