Directed by Taibi Magar
JUNE 3 – AUGUST 6 | SCHUBERT THEATRE
The longing in her heart brings adventure, mystery, and eventually… love. Life in the vast sea cannot contain a young mermaid’s curiosity, and the lessons she learns along the way lead her to seek the fulfillment of her dreams, come what may. Imaginative children’s theatre inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fairy tale.
- Meet the cast after every performance for pictures and autographs.
- Sign-Interpreted performance on Saturday July 30th at 10am.
The Morning Call
“Magical ‘Little Mermaid’ a visual feast at PSF”
“…stunning visually as well as a lot of fun.”
“Director Taibi Magar has created a magical production for her festival debut.”
The Lehigh Valley Press
“The Little Mermaid” is exciting, hilarious and stunning. Steven TenEyck’s set design is breathtaking.”
“Olivera Gajic’s costume design is unforgettable. The mermaids’ dresses are gorgeous, with imaginative tails and hair to match. The Sea Witch’s costume is elaborate and most memorable, with a long, flowing, black sequined dress that amasses the whole stage, flowing in the ocean current, and gray hair molded into the shape of a ship.”
“The show has a little bit of everything: drama, happiness, singing and dancing. It is a wonderfully-acted, cheerful and modern take on a classic tale.”
