Dive right into the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale! When a sea witch offers a beautiful mermaid princess the chance to make her dreams come true, it comes at a heavy price. The Little Mermaid sacrifices the best parts of herself—her tail and her voice—for legs, in the hope of winning the heart of the prince she adores. But the sea witch isn’t finished with her yet. Will love conquer all? A cast of two storytellers, Flotsam and Jetsam, bring fresh energy to this timeless fairy tale.

    Playwright

    Mike Kenny is one of England’s leading playwrights. He specializes in theatre for young audiences. He has won numerous awards for his plays including being the first ever recipient of The Children’s Award for playwriting for children in 2000, as well as an Olivier Award for his adaptation of The Railway Children. His plays are still widely performed throughout England and the world. Kenny began experimenting with story adaptation when he worked at the Leeds Playhouse in Education. He worked with government and education authorities to provide access to plays for children of all backgrounds. He enjoys adapting fairytales because they provide a root problem that the children must solve. He believes that theatre for young audiences should take them seriously as audience members and should present them with situations they may or may not encounter.
