The Haymarket

Did you ever go to Silversands on a sunny day?

Then perhaps you saw the mermaid who sang in the deep blue bay...

The Singing Mermaid is tempted away to join a travelling circus, with the promise of a life of excitement (and her own swimming pool!). The audiences love her singing, but we soon find out she's been tricked.

Will she ever escape? And who will help her along the way?

Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks' The Singing Mermaid, adapted for the stage with enchanting puppets by Lyndie Wright and music and songs by Barb Jungr, is a perfect piece of theatre for 3 to 8 year olds.

This much-loved story is not to be missed.
