The Little Mermaid
Le Theatre de Marionette’s adaptation of The Little Mermaid enhances Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale with the magical movements of intricately carved marionettes. Overcome by a desire to experience life on land, young Ariel trades her beautiful voice to a Sea Witch named Ursula for a pair of legs and lungs. The mermaid must then convince a handsome prince to fall in love with her within three days, or else become bound to Ursula forever.
Colorful seahorses and singing octopuses join a cast of more than 60 marionettes—each created by as many as 20 artists—in bringing this ocean extravaganza to life, while shadow puppets and special effects add additional visual flair. Behind the marionettes are a team of voice actors and skilled puppeteers who operate the 12–18 strings required to bring each character to life—”it’s like flying a kite in a hurricane sometimes backstage,” founder John Hopkins told Good Morning Texas.
