Canal Walk Theatre Presents: The Little Mermaid - June 2024

Canal Walk Theatre is thrilled to announce its enchanting production of The Little Mermaid. From June 15 to July 7, families can immerse themselves in the beloved story of the Little Mermaid and her captivating underwater world.

In this enchanting classic tale, an 18-year-old mermaid dreams of living on land. Defying her father, the Sea King, she ventures to the surface, sees a ship with a handsome prince, and falls in love with him from a distance. A great storm breaks out, and the Little Mermaid saves the prince from a near-drowning. She makes a risky deal with the sea witch, Ursula, to become human for three days. When complications occur, the Sea King must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter.

The production is brought to life by Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer, a world-renowned directing, production, designing, and acting duo.

Leading the cast is the talented Zoë Gray. Originally from the Eastern Cape, Zoë’s passion for theatre flourished in Gqeberha’s vibrant community scene. After moving to Cape Town, she graduated from the Waterfront Theatre School. Zoë has previously shone in roles such as Laurie Williams in the 80th-anniversary production of Oklahoma! and originated the role of young Mother Teresa in History Girls, a new South African musical. Earlier this year, she made a remarkable professional debut as Johanna Baker in the critically acclaimed immersive production of Sweeney Todd at the historic Olympia Bakery in Kalk Bay.

Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless tale of a determined young mermaid pursuing her dream to become human reminds us of the courage required to chase our dreams. We can make our aspirations a reality through personal sacrifice, dedication, and perseverance. At a time when support for the arts is dwindling, it is heartwarming to see Canal Walk’s unwavering commitment to sharing the magic of live theatre with new generations each winter holiday through grand productions like The Little Mermaid.” says Abrahams and Meyer.
