Calumet Players The Little Mermaid

These character study portraits of the Little Mermaid cast were such a thrill. I could create images like these all day, every day… and never tire. I have also included the graphics work I have done for the promotional materials. I am not too familiar with the stage version of this story, but the animated Disney film was a favorite of mine growing up. Who am I kidding, all of the classic 80’s/90’s Disney films are a favorite, still to this day. The music of Alan Menken is the soundtrack of my childhood. Go support this hard working group of performers and avid theater creators here in Pipestone. ❤ -Mark T.
