Back by popular demand, Wicked Productions returns to Eastbourne this Easter with family fun musical The Little Mermaid.

Showing at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre from April 12-13, at 5.30pm with 2pm matinee, this musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s fabulous story is sure to warm your cockles and win the hearts of any little sea urchins.

The daughter of King Triton, the Sea God and one of three sisters, Lenor longs to leave the depths of her sea bed and explore the world beyond the water. In a desperate bid to win the heart of the handsome Prince, Lenor makes a deadly pact with the infamous Sea Witch Morgana, whose intentions are more than a little fishy! With support from best friends Crab Stick and Crab Paste, will Lenor win the heart of her human love or will Morgana rule the waves?

Producer Tom Swift said: “I’m incredibly excited to be bringing our annual Easter production back to the Royal Hippodrome after last year’s hugely successful production of Rapunzel Rocks...Our passion is for quality, professional productions that capture the whole family’s imagination. Whatever your age we guarantee a laugh out loud production that will appeal to everyone. With a brand new script, music and costumes this is set to be our best production to date.”

Tickets cost £15.50 for adults, children £13.50, family £45: book on or call 01323 802020.
