The Little Mermaid longs to rise and experience the human world. The Prince meanwhile is drawn to the murky depths of the sea. When a storm rises and the Little Mermaid saves his life, she falls head over tail in love with him. Visiting the sinister sea witch she sacrifices her voice in exchange for human legs to try and find her prince. But life on land is not what it seems and she runs away, floating back out to sea in an abandoned boat – unable to rejoin her fellow mermaids beneath. Can her sisters convince the Prince to overcome his fears, return to the sea and reveal his true feelings for the Little Mermaid before it’s too late…

The classic love story of the Little Mermaid and her human Prince is turned on it’s head with extraordinary circus and spellbinding original folk songs. Featuring awe-inspiring acrobatics, death-defying aerial circus and dizzying cyr wheel this stunningly visual new production from the award-winning Metta Theatre will enchant and enthral. Fun for all the family 8+.
