Children and their grown ups can enjoy this puppetry packed story –The Singing Mermaid, which comes to Theatre Royal Winchester from Saturday 13 April.

Based on the children’s story by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Lydia Monks, the show tells the story of a singing mermaid who is tempted to join a travelling circus with the promise of a life of excitement, plus her very own swimming pool.

But, while everyone loves her singing, she has been tricked by the dastardly circus master, leaving audiences wondering if she will escape and who will help her?

The adaptation is by Little Angel Theatre and Royal & Derngate, Northampton, presented by Watershed Productions – and is performed by a talented cast of three performers, with music and songs by Barb Jungr (We’re Going On A Bear Hunt).

The Singing Mermaid features enchanting puppets, music and songs that make it perfect theatre for audiences aged 3 – 8 years old and their families.

The Singing Mermaid will be at Theatre Royal Winchester from Saturday 13 – Sunday 14 April at various times. Recommended age: 3 – 8. For more information or to book tickets, visit: or call 01962 840 440.
