Theater Workshop Presents: The Mermaid and the Merrimack

PRESS RELEASE : The Mermaid and the Merrimack makes a splash on the Theater Workshop stage. A present-day fairy-tale set in Newburyport tells the story of a teenage fisherman named Jack who befriends a brave mermaid named Merissa who takes a risk by leaving her deep-sea home to explore the Merrimack River where she hopes to find the cause of pollutants pouring into the sea. They join in their efforts to solve the mystery and secure clean water to save the eco-system. An original script written and directed by Stacey April Fix brings a charming under-sea community of characters to the stage when the mermaid kingdom discovers Merissas connection with humans and her family loyalty is tested. Jack becomes an advocate raising awareness while the adventures ensue with hilarious pirates, a crustacean army in pursuit of the lost mermaid, and a deep-sea courtroom lead by an octopus judge. This is a magical story with a meaningful message for our coastal community that will touch audiences of all ages. Theater Workshop is celebrating 20 years of professional childrens theater, an enrichment program of Workshop Arts Inc., a non-profit foundation. Children from different schools in the surrounding towns are included in this cast. This Workshop Arts program is supported in part by Cultural Council grants from Newbury, Salisbury and Rowley.

About Newbury, MA
The plantation of Newbury was founded as a town in 1635 and is located in the northeastern part of Essex County. Pawtucket Indians hunted and captured seasonal runs before settlers appeared.

As the town grew fishing - weaving - tanning and shoe making as well as small scale ship building became important industries. Farmers would raise cattle and sheep so by 1791 there were over 3000 cattle on the town lands. Around that time the town began to produce woolen goods made from the first American-made wool machines that also included snuff and chaises and slate.

The competition from England's woolen mills decreased the emphasis on woolens which led to the production of cotton fabric and was the beginning of a cooperage which is a machine made nail factory and scythe mill.

In 1844 James Steam Mills was began and in 1850 the railroads were in town, by 1845 45000 pairs of shoes were made. Soon the economy would swing back into agriculture and by the end of the 19th century there was a large shift into dairying. By 1905 instead of shoes there were 450000 gallons of milk were produced and poultry and eggs became a significant business.
