About this show

Ladies and gents, girls and boys, scalawags and scurvy dogs! 'Tis time fer Three By the Sea! Join Buccaneer Bocephus Q. Fizziwater as he dives into a trio of tales about wondrous watery worlds telling the stories of "Paddy and the Mermaid," "Coyote's Moon" and "Foghorn Franny." Mermaids, grizzled ole sea dogs, surfer dudes, and ornery coyotes conquer the Seven Seas! Will Paddy be able to keep his Mermaid bride happy on the shore? Will Little Rabbit be able to keep Coyote in the river and avoid being supper? Will Foghorn Franny survive surfer culture to find her Pop? Each sea yarn - inspired by traditional Irish folktales, Native American and Mexican folklore as well as American tall tales - is performed in whimsical, story-theatre style with music, puppets and much more! "Paddy and the Mermaid" is loosely based on T. Crofton Croker's "The Lady of Gollerus" published in his 1825 collection The Fairy Legends and Traditions of the South of Ireland. "Coyote's Moon" features recurring coyote and rabbit characters of traditional Native American and Mexican trickster folklore. "Foghorn Franny" boasts a superhuman ability - a huge voice - in the American tall tale tradition.
