Based on the Hans Christian Anderson classic tale, this musical follows Coral, the Little Mermaid, in her quest to become human. Curious ambition and a wondering heart lead this mermaid to the surface of her world, above the ocean blue. She rescues Evan, a sailor, who is later revealed to be a prince among men. In the name of love, Coral is willing to part from her family, defy her father King Neptune and even traverse the murky Benthic Underworld of the Sea Witch, all in the name of her heart. This is the classic tale about sacrifice, friendship, love and the ultimate fish out of water. The book and lyrics are by Matthew Thompson with music by Thomas Hodges.
The production is directed by FCP President Amy L. Burns. For more information, call the Franklin Community Players at (706) 491-1538 or visit franklincommunityplayers.com.
