The singing mermaid is tempted away to join a travelling circus, with the promise of a life of excitement (and her own swimming pool!). The audience loves her singing but soon she finds she’s been tricked by the dastardly circus master. Will she ever escape? And who will help her along the way?
A cast of three performers, beautiful puppets and music & songs by Barb Jungr (We’re Going On A Bear Hunt) bring Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks’ much-loved story to life.
"Exquisitely designed puppets manipulated with captivating skill transform Julia Donaldson’s book into an entrancing stage show"
This play is based on the original book The Singing Mermaid, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Lydia Monks.
