Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid is one of most beloved fairytales of all time — but you’ve never seen it like this. Hans Christian Andersen’s classic and enchanting love story is given new life by Netherlands based Theater Terra.
With talented actors, life-sized puppets, touching songs and an unbelievable underwater set — this production can only be described as truly magical.
Deep in the ocean there once lived a mermaid with a voice of gold. She often dreamed of the world above the sea and when she is finally old enough to explore this world, she saves a young prince from a drowning ship. She falls in love and wants to become human as well. The mermaid desperately asks a mean sea witch for help. The witch agrees to give her legs, but only when she gives up her beautiful voice. Will the trade lead to true love?
Theater Terra’s re-imagining takes you under the sea and on a grand adventure filled with love, intrigue, redemption and excitement. When the puppets move across the stage, you’ll swear we filled the Atwood Concert Hall with water.
Celebrate Movement, Celebrate Life and Celebrate True Love with Theater Terra’s The Little Mermaid.
