A Brine Shrimp version of  West Side Story meets Book of Mormon meets Footloose! This new musical comedy is a microcosm of the loves, beliefs and hardships of everyday life in the saltwater tank. Devoted to an unknown deity—a moving light source and a net—our loving shrimp must endure sibling rivalry, gangs of no-goodniks and their true fate: that they are but fish food.

Micro Shrimp is a fun, silly and outrageous new musical with tunes that will swim around your head long after you leave the aquarium...uh, theatre.

Read this great review of the show in the Stage Crafter blog.
