Orlando Shakespeare Theater in Partnership with UCF (Orlando Shakes) produces a new adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale The Little Mermaid by Brandon Roberts in the Goldman Theater from June 14 - July 29, 2018.

Curiosity killed the catfish... A precocious young mermaid dreams of visiting the Landside. Against the advice of her friends, she makes a deal with an evil sea witch for the chance to earn the love of a human prince. Danger is imminent, but how can she ignore what's in her heart?

"We are delighted to offer another fantastic fairy tale this summer at Orlando Shakes," says Anne Hering, Education Director at Orlando Shakes. "Through puppetry and artful storytelling, this hilarious underwater adventure is sure to entertain children and parents alike."

The Little Mermaid features Jillian Gizzi as Allura, James Putnam as Prince Dylan, Stephen Lima as Dame Selkie/Bubb/Lyman, and Mandi Lee as Grandmother/Goby/Ethel.

The Orlando Shakes artistic team includes Director Patrick Braillard, Set Designer Chris McKinney, Lighting DesignerAlyx Jacobs, Costume Designer Mel Barger, Sound Designer Britt Sandusky, Puppet Designer and Fabricator Alison Reid, and Stage Manager Paige Gober.

The Little Mermaid is presented by Clifton Larson Allen, LLP. Orlando Shakes is also supported by United Arts of Central Florida, host of OrlandoAtPlay.com and UAArtsEd.com. This project is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the State of Florida.
