Mermaid Theatre Company is registered under the Societies Act of Nova Scotia – founded in Wolfville by Sara Lee Lewis, Tom Miller and the late Evelyn Garbary (the company later moved to Windsor in 1987). It began limited touring in the Spring of 1972, with their first performance taking place at Aldershot School. By September 1972, Mermaid was on it’s way – and the company is now in its 46th season (2017-18)! The company now maintains a professional world touring company for family audiences, winning international acclaim for its original productions and unique stage adaptations of children’s literary classics, all with an emphasis on puppetry and original music and gentle storytelling. The company also includes the Institute of Puppetry Arts, the Mermaid Theatre Loft’s Artist Residence program and the Mermaid Imperial Performing Arts Entertainment series.
