Opening Night: New “The Little Mermaid”

I was thrilled to be in the audience for another Stage Right / Mahokey / Kerestan collaboration. My daughter is one of four talented young people who share the role of the fish sidekick, called “Tailfin” in this version.

The story line is similar to the Disney-movie version of the story about a mermaid who braves the forces of a sea witch to win her prince. Stage Right artistic director Anthony Marino adapted the film script for the stage with original music by David Mahokey of Connellsville, a Point Park University student, and Greg Keresten of Greensburg, a Seton Hill University student. –via ‘Little Mermaid’ brings new music to the Andersen fairy tale – Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
