Founded in 1972, Mermaid is best known for unique stage adaptations of children's beloved literary classics.  Their innovative puppetry, striking scenic effects, evocative original music and gentle storytelling have been applauded by over six million spectators in fifteen countries.  Mermaid Theatre's focus is twofold.  Mermaid's energetic professional touring theatre for family audiences has won international claim for original productions with a strong emphasis on puppetry and in the incorporation of original music.  Further, Mermaid has a strong local and regional presence as the result of teaching and presenting activities.  These include residencies, the Institute of Puppetry Arts' innovative education and outreach programs and the Mermaid Imperial Performing Arts Centre.
