Synopsis:

Set in Ocean City, MD, Clem’s Mermaid Adventure follows the adventures of a girl on her quest to meet a mermaid.  It’s a lighthearted story focusing on the magic of imagination, and the wonder of the world as seen through the eyes of a child. At the heart of the story is the relationship between the young girl and her older brother, who are at different stages in their lives. The search for the mermaid initially drives them further apart, but in the end brings them back together.

Character BIOS

[DONNY OR DANI] [GENDER: MALE OR FEMALE] [AGE: 15-25]
Donny/Dani is growing up, and becoming one of the “cool kids” in high school. They don’t have time for dumb little kid stuff anymore. They find themselves at odds with their younger sister, Clem, who just wants to be friends again. In the end, they resolve their issues with Clem and agree to help her find a mermaid. This is a major role.

[DAD] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 35-45]
Dad is a fun, stay-at-home parent. He’s a bit goofy, and enjoys playing with Clem. His joking remarks set Clem on her quest to find a mermaid. One day commitment.

[MOM] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 35-45]
Mom has a successful career, and supports the household. She puts on a no-nonsense attitude and pretends to be annoyed with Dad’s constant joking, but she secretly loves it. She doesn’t have a lot of time for Clem, but has that sixth “mom sense” to know that something is up when Clem sneaks out to find her mermaid. One day commitment.

[NANCY] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE:50-65]
Nancy is Clem’s aunt. She has operated a mini golf establishment for decades. She’s seen a lot in her days, and doesn’t take any crap. But she has a soft spot for Clem and pays her to help out with odd jobs. One day commitment.

[SHIRLEY] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE:50-65]
Shirley is the manager of a greasy spoon restaurant. In the summer, she has to put up with hundreds of tourists per day, but in the off-season, 
the locals come around on the weekends for a good meal. Opposite of Nancy, she’s softened to everyone rather than hardened, and treats everyone like they’re her family. One day commitment.
