The Little Mermaid - A Panto Under The Sea


Ariel is King Triton’s feisty mermaid daughter. She loves going to the surface of the sea, which of course is forbidden by her dad. Her best friend is Doreen, a forgetful fishy character who drives everyone nuts including of course, Ariel’s nanny Dame Bormaljotta! On the surface of the sea Prince Rubinu is off on a quest to search for his father King Barbakannella who hasn’t returned from his voyages. In the meantime, the evil sea witch Ursoola Minnofs, is planning her takeover of the underwater kingdom with the aid of her two minions Morina and Skorfina! Will she succeed? Will Ariel get her wish? Will the dame get herself a hubby? Will Triton get his daughter to obey him and will Rubinu find his dad? Will Fairy LE manage to beat the sea witch? Is there life on Mars? Is there life in Malta? With a stellar cast led by Edward Mercieca as the Crustacean Dame, Katherine Brown as the evil cephalopod, Ursoola Minnofs, Chiara Hyzler as the hilarious Doreen, Nikki Cassar as the feisty Ariel, Tezara Saliba as the swashbuckling Prince Rubinu, Karen Decelis as this years rather cool Fairy LE,  Antonella Mifsud and Maria Cassar as the two bungling Eels, Renato Dimech as the grovelling Captain Barbuljatu, Joe Depasquale as the rather bulky Triton and Adriel Camilleri as Bosun Cikku Flieles as well as a chorus of sea creatures, zombie pirates, sailors and various flotsam and jetsam! 


Directed by Chris Gatt, Musical Director Kris Spiteri, Choreographer Luisa Fenech Conti and vocal coach Analise Cassar. This years offering at Christmas at the true home of Panto, the Manoel Theatre, is the obvious choice for families, definitely a must see.
