THE LITTLE MERMAID
THE LITTLE MERMAID premiered at the Tuacahn Theatre in Ivins, Utah for their summer 2011 season. As design effects specialist, I designed the specialty fish for the "Under the Sea" number. Originally designed to be costumed actors, it was decided to animate the pieces instead through a pulley system attached to actors on the ground. I supervised construction of each of the pieces and then personally built the Lion Fish made of PVC pipe and ripstop fabrics that were hand-painted. Costume designer Carla Summers, scenic design Doug Ellis and directed by Scott S. Anderson.
