The Little Mermaid brought to a Peterborough stage
Join Ballet Theatre UK on this dramatic re-telling of Hans Christian Andersen's all-time favourite story of The Little Mermaid, who falls in love with a human Prince and gives up everything to win his love (The Broadway, May 25).
The kind -hearted Little Mermaid rescues the Prince during a storm at sea, and begins a journey that takes her far from her home beneath the waves.
Determined to pursue her love onto the shore she makes a bargain with an evil Sea Witch, but it comes at a heavy price.
Ballet Theatre UK’s charming and poignant ballet explores the nature of longing, how making choices have lasting consequences and how goodness can be rewarded in unexpected ways.

Life and Beth
Key Theatre Studio, May 23-26
The Peterborough Playgoers present this festive comedy by Alan Ayckbourn. It’s Christmas, and Beth Timms is mourning the recent death of her health and safety officer husband, Gordon. Beth’s sister-in-law Connie and son Martin have come to stay, determined to ensure that she should have a stress-free Christmas. However, between Connie’s drinking problem and Martin’s unspeaking and emotionally volatile girlfriend Ella, their intentions prove to be short-lived. Only David, the local vicar, provides Beth with any comfort.
The Cresset, May 24
One of the best known love stories, performed by the ever popular Vienna Festival
Ballet. Lavish costumes, stunning scenery, international stars, and the glorious music from Tchaikovsky make this a night not to be missed. Swan Lake is the most popular ballet in the world. It’s the ballet that captures like no
other the full range of human emotions - from hope to despair, from terror to
tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.
