Disney's The Little Mermaid makes a splash at Zilker Hillside Theatre
KVUE spoke to Bobby Tschoepe – who plays one of Ursula's eels, Jetsum – about why this production is so cool.
"Being able to come and do a show outside for people who maybe wouldn't get to see a show normally – they have this ability to come and enjoy Broadway-style, and Broadway-quality shows for free," Tschoepe said. "It's really cool to be able to look out into the audience and see kids and families just enjoying shows together."
Coty Ross, who plays Ursuala, agreed.
"Why I do this and why I keep coming back, sweating it out in the heat, is to do it for people who don't get an opportunity to see theater." Ross sadi. "Everyone has that same awe and excitement, and I'm very privileged to be a part of it."
The Zilker Hillside Theater is located at 2206 William Barton Drive in Austin.
