"My name is Moon and I have a story to tell" Gather round, gather round for the Moon’s magical, mystical story about a tippetty-top tap dancer who he has been watching at night. Marina Skippett creeps out of her house every night to shuffle and stomp on the boardwalk to the sounds of the sea. She can’t tap dance at home anymore since her evil, tractor-sized Aunty banned it, threatening to feed Marina’s dinners to the dog! But then, one moonlit night, Marina meets a mysterious, watery boy swimming in the sea and her life is never the same again! Following extraordinary success and multiple sell-out shows, The Tap Dancing Mermaid is now being recast to tour the UK and internationally. With stunning puppets, original live music to sing along to and tap dancing that will make you want to stick 50ps to your shoes and join in! For everyone aged 3 to 133. ‘The Tap Dancing Mermaid is the perfect example of a show where the adults are just as enthralled as the kids.’ ★★★★ A Younger Theatre ‘If you drew up a checklist of all the things a good children’s show should contain, The Tap Dancing Mermaid would tick every box…while the show’s title may hint at Disney-esque tweeness, this is a show for all to enjoy.’ ★★★★ The List ‘Within minutes it’s not just the little people who are transfixed by the storyline but all of the adults present too.’ Manchester’s Finest “This is just everything a children’s theatre experience should be.” Childplays ‘...within minutes I was hooked, transported into a world of intrigue and excitement. I looked around the room and saw 60 young faces full of joy and completely engaged as they too journeyed into this beautiful world. We loved and long for more of The Tap Dancing Mermaid.' Debbie Brown, Headteacher at Bridport Primary School
