Little Mermaid Camp

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytale, this brand-new musical adaptation of The Little Mermaid goes back to its roots as a moving tale of love, choice, and sacrifice. The Little Mermaid dreams of seeing the world above that she’s heard about in her Grandmother’s stories, and on her sixteenth birthday she can finally rise above the seas like her sisters before her. When a Prince on a nearby ship is flung overboard into the stormy waters, the Little Mermaid saves his life and changes her own forever. A visit to the Sea Witch can give the Little Mermaid all she’s ever wanted, but is she willing to pay the price?

Please note: This production is based on the original story- it is NOT the Disney version.

Campers will learn acting, singing, and dancing skills as they prepare for the final performance, and discover author Hans Christian Andersen, mermaid folklore, and more along the way!  Roles will be assigned in the first few days of camp.  Stress-free auditions will take place during camp, and all campers will be cast in the production!

Roles include:
Little Mermaid
Sea Witch
Five Mer-Sisters
Ensemble (the Ensemble will play a large role in the show, with characters including Water, Merpeople, Sea Creatures, Sailors, Courtiers, and Townsfolk)

Campers meet Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm, with final performances on Friday, August 2 at 7 pm, Saturday, August 3 at 11 am & 7 pm, and Sunday, August 4 at 2 pm.
Limited to 20 campers.
