East Lansing Hannah Community Center


In the harmonious undersea world of merpeople, the little mermaid Pearl dreams of the world above. Her sisters Luna and Coral, her father, Anemone the Sea King, and her grandmother, the Great Mother, warn her of the dangers above. But Pearl, in love with the handsome prince whose life she saved, trades her voice to the Sea Witch to become human. After the Sea Witch is vanquished by her twin sister, the Great Mother, Pearl regains her voice, marries the prince, and happiness and harmony prevail. Delightful inventions, reverberating with the ecology of land and ocean, render exciting and newly relevant this adaptation by Linda Daugherty of the story by Hans Christian Andersen. Presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing. Auditions will be held May 15-17.
