The Tap Dancing Mermaid

We’ve all heard thousands of stories written about The Moon but now the time has come to hear his magical, mystical story about a young tap dancer who he watches at night.

Mixing up tap dance, stunning puppetry, live ukulele-ing and a beautiful story, The Tap Dancing Mermaid is the
smash hit solo production from Tessa Bide Productions Ltd and it will make you want to stick
50ps to your shoes and join in!

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 called Leo
swimming in the sea and her life is never the same again!

The “truly amazing one woman power house” Tessa Bide brings you her celebrated devised solo production, called “just everything a children’s theatre experience should be” (Childplays). There are 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.
