The Little Mermaid!

 My family has been going to Tuacahn in St. George for years and years now. I've seen so many different plays here.  Aida, Tarzan, Crazy for You, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music, Cinderella, Joseph, even Annie Get Your Gun.  Tuacahn never ceases to amaze me, the props are spectacular and they find the most amazing actors to play these roles.

The Little Mermaid was amazing!  Tuacahn took a play that I was semi skeptical over, and turned it into the human version of the cartoon I watched repeatedly as a child.  Water all over the stage, projections onto a sheet of falling water, a massive ship, and Ursula wheeling around the stage standing on an electric wheelchair (the poor driver! That must have been an awkward arrangement under that skirt.).

To top it all off, I got to bring my friend, Leslie with me!  It was her first time in St. George and we had a good time looking around the city.  We also went down to Zions and hiked the Emerald Pools hike... IN FLIP FLOPS!  We were sort of stupid there... that was my fault.  when we got to the top (after much prodding and encouragement from Leslie) we played in the big pool and I drenched my shorts so badly it looks like I had an accident.  Getting down the mountain was terrifying, but worth it (I suppose).

Pictures to come later!
Thanks for coming with me, Leslie!

  1. The play was fantastic. Yes. It was very much worth it to hike to the top. :D Next we will hike Everest....maybe to the Timpanogous cave.
