But first, she’ll have to defy her father, the king of the sea, escape the clutches of an evil sea witch and convince a prince that she’s the girl with the perfect voice. Directed and Choreographed by Scott Viets.

“Again, I am gob smacked by the talent and professionalism of our students,” says Viets, who is also SRT’s Producing Artistic Director. “This is a dream team of young talent, and they are so hungry to put on a stellar show for our audience.”
