The Little Mermaid and Other ‘Tails’ – March 2018

SAT 10 MARCH – SUN 8 APRIL 2018 at The Sydenham Centre
2pm and 4pm, every Saturday and Sunday*
*except Easter weekend. Two extra performances in half-term Tues 3 & Wed 4 April

Suitable for children aged 3-10. Show lasts approx 1 hour.

Join me Hans Christian Andersen, Denmark’s finest shopkeeper – sorry, storyteller! – on a magical journey under the sea as I tell three of my most famous tales to a very unhappy opera singer. Can The Little Mermaid, The Emperor’s New Clothes and The Ugly Duckling cheer her up and make her sing again?

This is the third children’s show from Spontaneous Productions’ creative team after their smash-hit versions of Jack and the Beanstalk and Goldilocks and the Three Bears in 2017. Passionate about creating original theatre for young audiences, the company aims to reinvent classic tales with a modern twist, often surprising and always entertaining.
