Little Mermaid to make a splash

A MAGICAL treat is in store for children and families at Worksop’s Acorn Theatre, as The Little Mermaid swims into town.

Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairytale will be performed at the Queens Street venue, on Saturday 29th January, by the Proteus Theatre Company.

Their version brings to life the two worlds of ‘up land’ and ‘down drift’ where the Little Mermaid dreams of the ‘two tails’ (humans).

Her sisters and father try to dissuade her, but her rescue of Prince Chand and their falling in love at first sight puts her life in jeopardy, as she takes any necessary steps to go to land to be with him.

It promises to be a treat for all the family.

Performance is at 6.30pm and tickets can be purchased at £5 for children and £6 for adults.
