If the adventure and magic of "Moana" and "Encanto" delighted you, don't wait to make plans to see "Spells of the Sea!" Finley Frankfurter is a 15-year-old fisherwoman who is terrible at fishing. H.S. Crank is a grumpy old lighthouse keeper who has been sitting for 20 years in the dark. Together, this unlikely pair begins an adventure through the ocean to find the Elixir of Life, an elusive remedy that will save Finley’s father from a mysterious illness. On their journey, the pair encounter mermaids and pirates, whirlpools and their worst fears, and finally a new understanding of the meaning of family, friendship, and trust in yourself.

Guinevere “Gwenny” Govea began "Spells of the Sea" in quarantined isolation and, with Anna Pickett, developed it into a podcast during the pandemic. Now, this unique tale breathes new life on the stage in this world premiere! Continuing Metro Theater Company’s legacy of bringing the best new voices to the stage, don't miss this soaring new musical by this brilliant young composing team!

Best enjoyed by 8-year-olds, 18-year-olds, and 80-year-olds – and everyone in between! Run time is 70 minutes with no intermission.
