A treasured tale of underwater wonders, perfect for families.

Discover Hans Christian Andersen’s most spellbinding fairytale of all in this charming retelling of The Little Mermaid.

Based on the original 1837 story – with a few magical twists and turns – this delightful family adventure follows the much-loved tale of a young mermaid who falls deeply in love with a human prince and faces an impossible decision: a life on land or in the sea.

Audiences of all ages will enjoy a parade of well-known and reimagined characters, including the wistful Little Mermaid, the captivating Prince, Mermaid Sisters, the wicked temptress Sea Witch, and two slick and slippery eels. The familiar storyline of shipwreck and rescues, spells and sacrifices, and the journey of falling in love, culminating in an ending guaranteed to delight even the youngest of viewers, is beautifully revealed in an underwater seascape.

With a parade of well-known and reimagined characters, and sublime music by Finnish composer Jean Sibelius as a nod to the original story’s Scandinavian heritage, this new family fairytale by acclaimed choreographer Paul Boyd will premiere at the stunningly redeveloped Thomas Dixon Centre.
