About the play: As the play begins, in the magical Kingdom of the Underwater Deep, a beautiful Mermaid Princess longs to become a human being. During a frightful shipwreck a Prince is tossed in the sea and rescued by the Mermaid Princess. When she sings him a haunting lullaby he falls in love with the girl with the beautiful, musical voice. The Little Mermaid defies her father the Sea King and makes a pact with Queen Odessa, trading her voice to become human. Her friends, Aruba and Finny, are at her side through the adventure providing humor and fun to this children's musical play of the beloved Hans Christian Andersen story.
