While visiting the beach in Santa Cruz one day, a small group of mermaids is discovered by some approaching surfers, one little mermaid is left behind and discovered by a young local, Eliot. Meanwhile under-the sea, the sea witch and King Neptune prepare their districts for the annual water games as Santa Cruz, fairytale and dystopian undersea worlds collide.
For almost 40 years, Little People’s Repertory Theatre has provided a unique, low-cost high quality summer musical theatre program for children 8-14. LPRT is the most affordable children's theater program in Santa Cruz County.
Since 1998, LPRT has offered children the unique opportunity to do “non-traditional” theater. We present an original rock musical tailor written for a cast of 70 children. We take a traditional fairytale or folktale and rewrite it with a contemporary twist. We parody classic rock and pop songs and performers. Every child sings, dances and has a spoken part.
In addition to serving 8-14 year-olds, LPRT also serves young children and teens through our Junior Players Program and our Teen Mentorship Program.Read More
