INDIGO MOON THEATRE presents MERMARELLA - Cinderella of the Sea
Puppetry & Shadow Theatre for Families
From one of its earliest beginnings in ancient Egypt, a story best known across the globe as Cinderella shape-shifts its common threads into the world of the seas; linking nations and hosting secret sea creatures from both fresh water and salt water ..... Mermarella is not the same creature as those she serves, who envy her gifts. She is kidnapped and taken to where they dwell - not far from where the fresh green waters of the Nile flow into the blue salt waters of the Mediterranean. She craves for acceptance in the salt water world - but will she ever be the same and find love again in this foreign kingdom? Must she really become something else to achieve her dream, or might her differences enchant and inspire the dances everyone shares? Puppetry, shadow theatre and acting bring this comic tale to its modern day outcome, aimed at thinking families and the young at heart of all ages.
show start 14:00
Duration: 30 mins, followed by a short interval and then a chance to have a go with the puppets in an interactive installation... what might you want to happen next in the story???
