State of Play Productions will present the world premiere of Jessica Fleitman's romantic comedy The Average-Sized Mermaid, to play the Gene Frankel Theatre, February 3-14. Kara-Lynn Vaeni will direct.

The play revolves around kindergarten teacher Miriam Moselle, who loses it one morning in front of her class the day after she's dumped by her two-timing fiancé. After possibly traumatizing the six-year-olds indefinitely with a tirade about male chauvinism in The Little Mermaid, Miriam inexplicably turns into a mermaid herself during an argument with the school's principal.

Michelle Concha will star as Miriam, with the cast also including Jimmy L. Allen, Seth Andrew Bridges, Starr Kirkland, Christiane Seidel, and Joe Sevier.

The creative team will includesBrendan Barr (sound design and original music), Loren Egan (choreography), Jarrod Jahoda (lighting design), Pip Ngo (dramaturgy), Ryan Palmer (scenic design), and Alexandra Townsend (costume design).
