Production Camp: The Little Mermaid

In this production based camp, students learn the importance of using their body, voice, and imagination, while working on the one act play, The Little Mermaid.  This camp is perfect for students with varying levels of experience!

About The Little Mermaid:

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 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 for humanhood.  Her friends, Aruba and Finny, are at her side through the adventure providing humor and fun to this children’s play of the beloved Hans Christian Andersen story.  The Little Mermaid includes the antics of Philippe the French Chef, salty dog Sailors, sidekicks Slithery Sirs and comical Castle Servants.

Please note: This is NOT the Disney version. This is a straight play based on Hans Christian Andersen’s story.
