Deep down in the depths
Deep down in the depths of the ocean, there once lived a Little Mermaid…”
So begins Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story of “The Little Mermaid.” This whimsical retelling of the original 1837 fairytale features an adventurous mermaid named Melody, who wants to emerge from the safety of the deep sea and explore what’s beyond the ocean surface: the human world.
But King Poseidon forbids his daughter from leaving her underwater home to be with dangerous humans. When Melody slips away from her own birthday party to see for herself, she winds up rescuing a drowning prince and falling in love with him. Desperate to become human, she bargains with Seaweed, the evil sea witch, to make her dream come true – at the cost of her beautiful voice. Along with her friends Bobell, the frog, and Turtell, the turtle, Melody sets out to find her land legs and true love! Tickets $15.50/pp
Runs October 14-November 12, 2016
