MARLBORO, VT - An adaptation of Hans Chrisian Andersen's much-loved fairytale "The Little Mermaid," will be presented at 7 p.m. October 25, 26, and 27 in Marlboro College's Whittemore Theater.
Marlboro junior Kristen Olsson conceived, adapted, and directs the production. Part of Olsson's Plan of Concentration focuses on W.B. Yeats' fascination with Japanese Noh drama. In this spirit, Olsson, a veteran of Marlboro College theater, presents this classic story of magic and selflessness in the style of Noh theater. Five Marlboro students perform in this lyrical work.
The performances are free and open to public. For more information, please contact the college at (802) 257-4333 or http://www.marlboro.edu.
