The Little Mermaid played its final performance May 22nd 2011 at The Players Theatre. We would like to thank everyone for their support and effort throught this incredible run. We look forward to our next production of Stone Soup starting this fall.
The review is by Allison Reitz and is posted on the ticketnews.com website. Here is a portion of the review:
"Based on the original Hans Christian Andersen story, "The Little Mermaid" is here revised for the stage with original music by Michael Sgouros, and book and lyrics by Brenda Bell. Like its source material, the bittersweet musical explores topics of sacrifice and the human soul. But with a nice balance of seriousness and silliness, "The Little Mermaid" is never out of the depth of its intended (young) audience.
The stage at Players Theatre is well utilized, serving as underwater kingdom, ship's deck, beach and palace at various points in the production. The entire cast is well-matched to the show, but during the reviewed opening show, Stefanie Smith and Eric Fletcher gave stand-out performances."click here to read full review
