About the show

(On hiatus) Literally Alive revives its musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale about a young mermaid who falls for a prince and ventures onto land. More…

Once upon a time there was a little mermaid who dreamed of the day when she would finally be old enough to explore the wonders of the world above the sea. When her turn comes, she is not disappointed. In fact she saves a young prince from drowning in a shipwreck and falls deeply in love with him. As her longing increases, she desires to become a mortal so she can marry her young prince; but, as with all dreams, there are sacrifices. There is a free family workshop one hour prior to every performance. Best for young children.

Entertaining, Fluffy, Slow

See it if You’re bringing kids Gr 1-3. My 1st grader enjoyed it somewhat. My pre-k who normally has remarkable attention span could not stay engaged.

Don't see it if Younger than 1st grade - not engaging enough.

Disappointing, Fluffy, Romantic, Slow, Indulgent

See it if A young child is with you. Not the traditional version . Same title but totally different plot and songs. Best part is pre show workshop.

Don't see it if You want good acting, this is quite amateurish. You need high production values to enjoy a show. Least professional kids show I have seen !

for a previous production "The bittersweet musical explores topics of sacrifice and the human soul.
