ON TOUR IN 2017-2018:


The Very Hungry Caterpillar & Other Eric Carle Favourites
2017 Japan & Singapore

 

VHC-288x200Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s signature production will return to Japan from August 21-28, 2017 for a ninth engagement since 2001. The Japanese-language version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar & Other Eric Carle Favourites will appear in five Tokyo-area theatres. Arrangements were facilitated by the Hikosen Theatre Company of Kawasaki City.

The hour-long triple-bill includes the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly; the fanciful account of Little Cloud’s ravels through the sky; and The Mixed-Up Chameleon’s discovery of his own unique nature.

The touring company members include seasoned performers Kathryn McCormack and Simon Rainville, and stage manager Don Brownrigg.  In addition, Mermaid Theatre has received permission to tour with the narration originally recorded in 2001 by the late Kyoko Kishida, the legendary star of stage and screen best known for her role in Woman of the Dunes.

Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny

U.S. and Canada tour, Early 2018

Goodnight Moon is a celebration of familiar nighttime rituals, while The Runaway Bunny’s pretend tale of leaving home evokes reassuring responses from his loving mum. Both tales, by Margaret Wise Brown with pictures by Clement Hurd, feature endearing rabbit characters, and the soothing rhythms of bunny banter and dream-like imagery never fail to infuse young readers with a reassuring sense of security. Mermaid’s staged adaptation will bring a new sense of appreciation to stories that have delighted several generations.

The Rainbow Fish
2017 Premiere and Spring 2018 Tour

RainbowFish-pic1

 

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s elegant new show, The Rainbow Fish, includes an original stage adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s colourful story as well two of the author’s companion tales, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites.  The Rainbow Fish tells the story of the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colours of the rainbow. The idea of depicting the exceptional beauty of the Rainbow Fish with shimmering silver foil came from the author himself. The result was the first picture book of its kind to appear on the market. Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea highlights further adventures. When his last glittering scale falls off and sinks down into the deep sea, Rainbow Fish finds the courage to follow it into the great unknown. Opposites uses striking images from Rainbow Fish’s underwater wonderland to introduce very young children to the concept of opposites. As a fitting finale, and story ends with the most satisfying opposite of all—give and take—as Rainbow Fish shares one of his shining scales with a friend.
