The Tap Dancing Mermaid


Marina Skippett creeps out at night to tap dance on the boardwalk to the sounds of the sea. She can’t tap dance at home anymore since her evil Aunty banned it, threatening to feed Marina’s dinners to the dog. But then, one magical night, Marina meets a mysterious, magical boy swimming alone and her life is never the same again!

Marina, The Moon and a bunch of beautiful, hand-crafted mer-puppets are tap dancing their way to The Story Museum to perform this innovative and exciting one-woman show written and directed by Tessa Bide and performed by Stephanie De Whalley. Featuring stunning puppets, original live music and tap dancing that will make you want to stick 50ps to your shoes and join in!

The Tap Dancing Mermaid is the perfect example of a show where the adults are just as enthralled as the kids.”
