Story Synopsis: Having fallen in love with the prince she saved from drowning, the Little Mermaid makes a deal with the
sea-witch to give up her voice in exchange for human legs. If the Little Mermaid speaks while she’s on land, the spell will be broken, and her legs will quickly turn back into fins. Face to face with the prince, her feelings overpower her, and she cannot help but speak to him. She risks her life (and limbs!) for only a brief moment to respond to the prince, then quickly dashes off to the sea, taking only a lesson of sadness and a glimpse of what can never be.
This beautiful adaptation by acclaimed children's playwright Lane Riosley, skips the well known happy ending to tell the fairy tale as Hans Christian Anderson originally wrote it.
