Epilogue Players to tell tale of ex-mermaids on dry land

Susan Hill and Barb Weaver will portray two former deep-sea divas – Coral and Oceana – when Epilogue Players presents Foolish Fishgirls and the Pearl, a play by Barbara Pease Weber.

The production opens Thursday, Feb. 15, running through Feb. 25.

Other roles in the play directed by Kelly Keller will feature Larry Adams as Floyd, Tracy Herring as Marina, Sarah Froehike as Sheila, Erin Keller as Pearl and Vincent Pratt as Nathan.

In the play, Coral, and Oceana don’t exactly have the “happily ever after” storybook lives the erstwhile mermaids envisioned. This feisty fairy tale explores a mermaid’s life on dry land after true love is found, lost, and found again.

Thursday to Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
