We got our Mermaid funding!

Curious Company act theme event entertainment Mermaid

After 2 years of fantasising (and a couple of meetings) we finally got some serious funding from the Arts Council to make our version of The Little Mermaid. It will be performed in leisure centre pools around Wiltshire with our company and a local team of synchronised swimmers with support from the county council too. Louise will produce and direct, Marie-Louise will choreograph and perform, Steven is writing the script and score and will be Neptune and we are delighted to be joined by Emily Campbell, a fantastic performer and opera signer who will be Ursula the Sea Witch. Our aims include expanding the scale and reach of our work, developing relationships locally and working close to home. We are also very excited about transforming leisure centre pools into theatre spaces and absolutely thrilled about working with swimmers. The shows are in June and will be part of Wiltshire’s Cultural Olympiad.
