Book, Music, & Lyrics by Marc Robin and Curt Dale Clark
In this original take on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, there is a beautiful young woman, an enchanted undersea realm, a handsome prince, and romantic longing. Oh, and Melody the Mermaid is no pushover! She wants to emerge from the safety of the deep sea and explore what’s beyond the ocean surface: the human world. But King Poseidon forbids his daughter to leave her underwater home to be with dangerous humans. When Melody slips away from her own birthday party to see for herself, she finds herself rescuing a drowning prince and falling in love with him.
