Paper Balloon Theatre Company presents The Boy and the Mermaid at the Canada Water Theatre! Can one unlikely friendship save the Town-On-The-Sea from catastrophe?

This event is suitable for: 4 - 7 years, 8 - 12 years, 13 - 16 years, 16 years+

This event costs: £7

The Boy lives with his Grandma, forbidden from venturing beyond the shore, but the tall tales told of monsters in the deep only whet his appetite – he stares at the ocean and dreams.

Join three shanty singing fisherman as they weave a fishy tale of musical merfolk, menacing monsters and spectacularly bad town planning.

With live music, puppetry, a rapping octopus and a shifting set full of surprises – this enchanting tale is fun for all the family

The Boy and the Mermaid is based on an original story by Alex Kanefsky and features original songs from Darren Clark (The Scarecrow’s Wedding, The Little Gardener) fused with traditional sea shanties – for all to sing along!

Price: £7
