Little Mermaid - The Circus Sensation
Spectacular circus and spellbinding songs combine in this extraordinary new adaptation from the award-winning Metta Theatre. With awe-inspiring acrobatics and hauntingly beautiful original songs this is a show for everyone.
The Little Mermaid longs for life on land, the Prince is consumed by the lure of the sea. When a raging storm brings them together, the wheels of fate are set in motion. Sacrificing her voice to the powerful Sea Witch, the Mermaid will face many more obstacles if she is ever to be with her Prince. For life on land is not as she dreamed and, unable to return to her sisters beneath, she remains floating helplessly above the waves. Her only hope rests with her sisters - can they help the Prince conquer his fears, return to the sea and reveal his true feelings, before it is too late...
Written by Poppy Burton-Morgan and Designed by William Reynolds - the team that brought you the smash hit Jungle Book - with music by Matt Devereaux, and starring some of the world’s leading circus artists, this breathtakingly beautiful production will enchant everyone from 8 to 108. A triumphant tale of love overcoming all.
We will be holding circus workshops in conjunction with the performances for young people to explore their bodies and find their voices. When these are finalised, details will be added - please sign up to our mailing list here to be notified!
