After the success of their recent pantomimes, Frostedand Sleeping Beauty, SMP return to the IntimateTheatre with The Little Mermaid – A Family Pantomime.
One day Mariel, the Mermaid, spots and falls in love with the handsome Prince Derek. But the evil Sea Witch, Octavia, wants the Prince herself so sets a plan in action to use Mariel for her own wicked gain. Will Mariel’s friends be able to save her? Will our heroes find true love? Will the kingdom be taken by a foul Sea Witch? The only way to find out is to watch the show.
Featuring all the traditional elements of pantomime this new show written by Warren McWilliams promises to warm the hearts of children of all ages and adults alike. Featuring a range of hit songs, spectacular dancing and great gags, The Little Mermaid is a fantastic family pantomime that will not disappoint.
The show is written by Warren McWilliams, directed by Michael Lacey, musically directed by Mike Benyon and choreographed by Jo Bakhurst.
Director Michael Lacey said: “Once again SMP are blessed with such talent to choose from. We have a wonderful cast, hilarious script and some fantastic song choices – this really will be a pantomime to remember. You’d be crazy to miss this show!”
Warren McWilliams who has written the script said: “It’s really enjoyable to write a fresh new pantomime for SMP. The audience will be familiar with the story line but it’s been given the full panto treatment so it’s packed with gags, new characters and is something totally new for our audience to enjoy.”
The show runs at The Intimate Theatre, 521 Green Lanes, Palmers Green, London, N13 4DH from Thurs 18th to Sat 20th January 2017 at 7.30 p.m. & Matinee on Sat 2oth & Sunday 21st January 2018 at 2.30 p.m. In addition, SMP will introduce an 11am Matinee on Saturday 20th.
