Kids Winter School Holidays 2024: The Little Mermaid at the Canal Walk Children’s Theatre

The Canal Walk Children’s Theatre is presenting a captivating performance of The Little Mermaid during the school holidays. 

In this enchanting classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen, an 18-year-old mermaid dreams of living on land. Defying her father, the Sea King, she ventures to the surface, sees a ship with a handsome prince, and falls in love with him from a distance. A great storm breaks out, and the Little Mermaid saves the prince from a near-drowning. She makes a risky deal with the sea witch, Ursula, to become human for three days. When complications occur, the Sea King must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter.

Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer, world-renowned and award-winning directing, production, designing, and acting duo, produce and direct the production.
