 The Little Mermaid


This spectacular landmark production boasts magnificent sets (even a live shipwreck!) and ornate costumes (including a cast of delightful undersea creatures) which are a feast for the eyes. A sweeping sound collage of great composers, from Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy, to Benjamin Britten and Raif Vaughn Williams furthers the drama and emotion as the Little Mermaid goes on her adventures. Innovative aerial technology has been created to generate an under-the-sea-environment.

Meet the Cast for Photos and Autographs!

After each performance selected members of the cast
make themselves available to greet our young audiences.
