Pick #1: Little Mermaid at the Larcom Theatre
When: Sat, Apr. 1st and Sun, Apr. 2nd
Tickets: $13 to $21
Venue: 13 Wallis Street, Beverly, MA
The beloved tale of The Little Mermaid is brought to the stage in a brand new production following a sell-out tour of China and the UK. The Panto Company presents their adaptation of this classic Hans Christian Andersen’s story to the stage in a fantastic, funny and exciting interactive show full of singing and dancing.
It follows the dreams of a young girl who believes there is something more for her out of the water. Of course there’s a handsome prince, an evil baddie and lots of laughs along the way.
Together with stunning scenery, eye-catching costumes, original songs plus up to date chart songs and not forgetting loads of audience participation this show makes for a thoroughly entertaining family day out.
