SHOWBOAT THEATRE AUDITIONS

For

Foolish Fishgirls and The Pearl

By Barbara Pease Weber

Former deep sea divas, Coral and Oceana, didn’t exactly have the “happily ever after” storybook lives that the two erstwhile mermaids dreamed of when they rescued their handsome young sailors and swam ashore thirty years ago. Talk about unhappy endings! Coral’s sailor, Fernando, took off with her treasure and returned home to his wife and four kids in Venezuela! Oceana’s dreamboat, Hans, hit the road with her treasure to live happily ever after with his boyfriend, Juergen, in Norway! When Coral and Oceana learn of a mermaid rescue involving a young Coast Guard Lieutenant whose car went off a nearby bridge, they dive into action to find the young, innocent mermaid and warn her about the perils and pitfalls of falling in love with mortal men who abscond with your gems, leaving you penniless with a broken heart and two skinny legs. Foolish Fishgirls and The Pearl is a feisty tale about a mermaid’s life on dry land after true love is found, lost and found again. And, like Coral, Oceana and Marina, you may find that “happily ever after” is closer than you think!
