Join us for The Little Mermaid, a first-ever foray by Ross Petty Productions into the fishy fairy tale where anyFIN goes!
Our group will save more than 30 per cent off the top-level regular adult ticket price!
Even though she's still wet behind the ears, The Little Mermaid will flood your funny bone with more local references than Rob Ford has protestations of innocence. Make no mistake ... this isn't a watered down version of the Disney film. Ross Petty Productions has gone to the source himself ... Hans Christian Andersen (the original Aqua Man) to bring audiences a deluge of comedic sea-nanigans. After a fin-omenal 18-year run at the Elgin Theatre, this is Ross Petty Productions' first-ever fractured take on The Little Mermaid.
Fresh from a title role in Evangeline at The Charlottetown Festival, musical theatre power house Chilina Kennedy stars as the Little Mermaid, bringing forth an impressive resume of stage work and critical acclaim that includes her role as Mary Magdalene in the Stratford to Broadway production of Jesus Christ Superstar. With an aquatic collection of friends by her side, the title character’s quest for true love and happiness is aided by Dan Chameroy’s sea-lacious Dame Plumbum, returning to the Elgin stage with his perennial persona as the Little Mermaid’s aunt. Starring opposite Kennedy as the handsome Prince, and the buoy of her dreams, is actor and Canadian Idol Season 1 finalist, Marc Devigne. More information (http://www.rosspetty.com/index.php).
