The Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, unfortunately, does not employ any mermaids. But it does have plenty of puppets, and that's good enough, right? After swimming around the world with award-winning performances in more than a dozen countries, this traveling children's theater company will drop anchor in the Callahan Theater of the Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Ave.) for two matinee shows on Saturday, March 9. The Mermaid Theatre will present an hour-long show with adaptations of two classic, bunny-themed children's books: Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram's "Guess How Much I Love You" and Jeram's "I Love My Little Storybook." The performances will feature original music as well as lots of bunny puppets, so prepare in advance for a cuteness overload.
The Mermaid Theatre's shows are at 2 and 4 p.m. Tickets are $15-$18, and can be purchased by calling 389-2170 or through artscenter.naz.edu, which also has a full list of upcoming events and shows at Nazareth College.
