What an exciting weekend to be in Atlanta and the surrounding areas! Tomorrow night is opening night for The Little Pirate Mermaid at Atlanta’s Center for Puppetry Arts. The show runs for a month, so if you can’t go this weekend you’ll have plenty more opportunities!

From the imaginative mind of Artistic Director Jon Ludwig comes a whale of a seafaring adventure based on Hans Christian Andersen’s tale with a swashbuckling musical twist. Featuring over 40 handcrafted puppets, the show takes advantage of marionettes as they are a perfect medium for creating a sense of weightless, “underwater” floating. The magic continues as the story goes above the water for lots of pirate ship fun, including a naval battle, an attack by a monstrous squid and hilarious antics between the sailors and pirates. What’s in store for the Mermaid Princess turned helpful pirate and her buccaneer beau? Take the plunge and see in this exciting adventure featuring a bountiful ocean of puppets, unique characters, original music, stunning stage effects and bubbly action!

To make it extra special have your little one dress up for The Little Pirate Mermaid and get a FREE Smallcake’s cupcake! Dress as a pirate, princess, or mermaid when you come to seeThe Little Pirate Mermaid at the Center for Puppetry Arts and get a voucher for a free cupcake from Smallcakes Cupcakery! (While supplies last. Smallcakes is located at 2955 Peachtree Road in Buckhead.)

This should prove to be a GREAT show! I am so excited to be attending this show with Marlee the mermaid, Amelia and Justin this Sunday!
