Summer Shows We Love: The Little Pirate Mermaid at the Center For Pupetry Arts



If you love storytelling and puppetry I have great news for you. The Center for Puppetry Arts has a brand new show that will steal your heart. The Little Pirate Mermaid, is new spin on the familiar Hans Christian Anderson/Disney fairy tale. 

Featuring over 40 handcrafted puppets, the show takes advantage of marionettes as they are a perfect medium for creating a sense of weightless, “underwater” floating. The magic continues as the story goes above the water for lots of pirate ship fun, including a naval battle, an attack by a monstrous squid and hilarious antics between the sailors and pirates. By combining a well known fable with some high seas adventure, Center for Puppetry Arts crafts a show that is completely shipshape and a thrill for boys and girls of all ages.

Our favorite part were the scenes of the old sea hag and the sea monster attacking the pirate ship. From the scenery, to the puppets, to all the different light effects The Little Pirate Mermaid is a show not to miss.
 
The Little Pirate Mermaid is presented in the Mainstage Theater, June 14 – July 15. Show times are as follows:
  • Tuesday – Friday*: 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
