Genre: Comedy, Kids, Musical

A MERMAIDS' TALE COME ASHORE TO OFF-BROADWAY & THE TRIAD THEATRE

This is more than an entertaining and engaging family-friendly show with memorable music---children & parents alike will also find the story cleverly woven with strong values and many positive and educational messages about tolerance, the help of friends, overcoming adversity, courage, and bullying.

Adapted from the L. Frank Baum novel, "The Sea Fairies" penned the year following his success with "The Wizard of Oz"., it is set on a School Auditorium stage. The students of Mr. Cutler gather to give their book reports on their favorite character from the Baum novel. Leave it to the students to make these reports more Magical, more Alive... they decide to turn the simple reports into a MUSICAL like on the ever-popular TV series, "GLEE"!!!

Join Us, as Trot (VICKI OCEGUERA – “Honestly Abe”) and her Grandfather (MARC RACO) take an undersea adventure with the Mermaids! Reluctant at first, because they have always heard "no one ever saw a Mermaid and lived to tell the tale!" Experience the Mermaid Magic - Meet in person the hilarious King Anko, (KIMBERLY CUELLAR) the villainous Zog (CARL HSU), his slightly zany assistant Sacho (KYLE JAMES JOHNSON), an underwater Goldsmith (MS. CUELLAR) who saves the day with her street-wise, rap-style delivery, three Mermaid Princesses (the Optimist ASHLEY ARAN), the Pessimist (KACEY CARDIN) & the Botanist (PAIGE MITCHELL) and the beautiful Queen Aquarine (KIMBERLY DINARO).
