School Tour 2018/2019

A Little Mermaid
This all new re-tailing adapted by Wide Open, is touring Saskatchewan and Alberta January  – April, 2019.

ALL NEW SHOW! This adaptation has never toured before and will be touring in French and English.  We should have changed the title to The Last Mermaid since this adaptation is so different than the original.  Our mermaid is faced with modern pollution and she sets out to find the cause.  She rescues a turtle, a man, a whale and many other creatures in her search for a way to let humanity know its their job to clean up this mess.

ALL NEW STYLE!  A Little Mermaid features shadow puppets and cranky theatre.  This gives us lots of art lessons to share with you!

Reviews are in!
“The children were very engaged in the entire performance. The music, sound effects and shadow puppets really held their attention. We would defiantly book them again!”

“All the grades loved this [show]. The shadow puppets were a big hit. Content was really good for all grades – we also had grade 8 students there all the way down to Kindergarten.”
