WHAT WE DO

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia creates award-winning theatre for young audiences and their families. Our productions, which feature beloved characters from children’s storybooks, tour across North America and around the world.

Mermaid’s Institute of Puppetry Arts trains professionals in the arts of puppet manipulation and construction.

Mermaid owns and operates the Mermaid Imperial Performing Arts Centre (MIPAC) in downtown Windsor, Nova Scotia. We present an annual Performing Arts Series of local and touring artists, as well as using the theatre for rehearsals and rentals for public events.

Our Production Studio creates puppets not only for our own shows, but also for other stage and film projects.

Our doors are always open for tours and visitors to our spacious facility in Windsor, Nova Scotia.

We offer workshops and puppetry demonstrations for kids of all ages, both at our facility in Windsor and also in schools and institutions around Nova Scotia.

Our Youtheatre program provides a forum for Nova Scotia’s teenage community.  Together, they create and present theatre which promotes awareness and facilitates positive change.
