Please join Milford’s Second Street Players as they present the second installment of their Children’s Dessert Theatre Series, “The Little Mermaid”. Show dates are Friday, May 18 at 7:00pm, Saturday and Sunday, May 19 & 20 at 1:00p. The tickets for Saturday and Sunday are $10. Friday night’s show is a special “Pay What You Can” performance with no set ticket price, all donations will be accepted.

Directed by Sharon Buchanan and featuring many talented actors and actresses with this beautiful adaptation by acclaimed children’s playwright Lane Riosley. The version skips the well-known happy ending to tell the fairy tale as Hans Christian Andersen originally wrote it. 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.

Join us for all the fun at the Riverfront Theatre on Walnut Street in Downtown Milford as we travel under the sea with this entertaining family show. Following the show, the audience will get a chance to meet the characters in person, get autographs and enjoy a special dessert. Log on to our newly updated website at www.secondstreetplayers.com or find us on Facebook for more information. Our Children’s Dessert Series is presented, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the Arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment of the Arts.
