From the team that brought you the smash hit Jungle Book, the award-winning Metta Theatre, an Associate Company of Exeter Northcott, return with their extraordinary new adaptation of Little Mermaid. With spectacular circus, awe-inspiring acrobatics and spellbinding 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 Little Mermaid and her Prince will face many more obstacles if they are ever to be together.
This breathtakingly beautiful production will enchant everyone from 8 to 108. A triumphant tale of love overcoming all.

Participants will explore how to reimagine and retell classic stories through spoken word and free verse.
