Marmalade

by Claire Parsons Co

Running time: 30 minutes

Marmalade is a delicious, tactile performance about meeting, mixing and blending. With poetic movements and circus actions, both adults and children will be treated to an exquisite and visual experience by the performers. Marmalade looks at the world through body, eye, feeling and taste in a room with fluffy skirts, soft circus and Fellini music.

Marmalade has performed over 500 shows in fifteen different countries such as the U.S, Singapore, Japan, Africa, Russia, Europe and Cuba! In the fall of 2017, the company performed twenty sold-out performances at the prestigious The New Victory Theatre in New York. In 2020, Marmalade continues on its fantastic journey around the world!

Eric Carle Classics:

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Mixed Up Chameleon & Brown Bear, Brown Bear

Mermaid Theatre’s lively compilation captures the magic of three Eric Carle favourites.

The hour-long triple-bill follows the adventures of The Mixed-Up Chameleon who is bored with his life as he sits about changing colour all day until he takes a trip to the zoo. His hilarious attempts to emulate the beautiful animals he sees conclude with his discovery that there is value in his own unique self.  The Very Hungry Caterpillar eats his way through an amazing variety of foods on his path to becoming a beautiful butterfly.   The story of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? has helped hundreds of thousands of children to identify colours and creatures.

Capturing the rhythmic text and beautiful tissue-paper collage illustrations of the classic picture book, Mermaid’s adaption generates fresh appreciation of an endearing cast of characters.

It’s Okay to Be Different

Stories by Todd Parr

WORLD PREMIERE

Three contemporary stories by New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Todd Parr will be adapted and staged by Mermaid Theatre for the 2020-2021 season. For very young audiences, the hour-long production entitled, It’s Okay to Be Different – Stories by Todd Parr features three books from his collection.

With his signature blend of playfulness and sensitivity, Todd Parr explores important and timely subjects. It’s Okay to Be Different cleverly delivers the important messages of acceptance, understanding, and self-confidence. Equally whimsical and heartfelt, The Earth Book, is a sweet homage to our beautiful planet inspiring readers of all ages to do their part to keep the Earth happy and healthy. This is My Hair is a funny exploration of how silly hair can be and that no matter how your hair looks, always feel good about yourself.

Mermaid’s new show will be directed and adapted by Jim Morrow, veteran director of numerous internationally acclaimed Mermaid productions. It will feature a diverse cast, an innovative approach to puppetry manipulation and construction, combined with playful original music for which the company has earned worldwide praise.
