|Description & Services|
|Information||Mermaid Theatre has been in continuous operation since it was founded in 1972 in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.
We moved to the neighbouring town of Windsor in 1987, and helped to revitalize the historic town’s downtown business core.
Our extensive headquarters encompass production studios, administrative offices, rehearsal quarters, a versatile studio, and an elegant 400-seat performance facility known as The Mermaid Imperial Performing Arts Centre (MIPAC).
Each year we present more than 400 performances for 200,000 spectators – many of them new to the theatre experience. Mermaid regularly crosses Canada and the United States, and has represented Canada in more than a dozen countries. Recorded narration featuring outstanding international artists facilitates performances in English, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, French, Cantonese and Mandarin.
Closer to home, Mermaid’s Institute of Puppetry Arts offers puppetry instruction at both community and professional levels. The Institute’s imaginative curriculum-based touring programs entertain and inform students and teachers throughout the region, as well as encourage educators to incorporate the performing arts in the teaching of science. The Institute of Puppetry Arts is pleased to offer workshops and demonstrations of the art of puppetry. We are available to travel to area schools, and we can also host school groups at our facility in Windsor.
Did you know that we give tours of our facility? Drop in any time through the week, and Chelsey will be happy to show you around.
