Unlike the Disney animated film, this production stays faithful to the Hans Christian Andersen original. A young mermaid falls hard for a prince, assuming human form in the hope her feelings will someday be reciprocated. The story unfolds through both images and music, played live by a percussive ensemble. Using puppetry, the production offers an underwater seascape sure to awe kids and impress parents. Each staging features a one-hour arts workshop before the show, so be sure to get there early.
