The Mermaid Imperial Performing Arts Centre will celebrate the holiday season with two productions directed to family audiences. The Ernst Family Singers will appear on Sunday, December 4th at 7:00 PM, while Mermaid Theatre’s acclaimed Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny will mark the close of a 50-performance tour on Sunday, December 11th at 2:00 PM.
The Ernst Family Singers, a popular choral ensemble based in Lunenburg, NS, will offer holiday music suitable for all ages featuring their renowned a cappella harmonies. The ensemble’s diverse singing styles and broad repertory have enabled them to tour eastern United States and Canada, as well as to appear on national television and radio. Tickets are $20 ($18 for students and seniors).
Mermaid’s Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny is drawn from two of Margaret Wise Brown’s beloved children’s books. Both feature the endearing animal puppets, stunning scenic effects and evocative music, which have earned international acclaim for Mermaid. The hour-long show is ideally suited to youngsters aged three to seven. Tickets are $12 ($10 for seniors and children).
Advance tickets for both presentations are available at Moe’s Place Music Sales at 129 Gerrish Street, Windsor, NS (902) 798-5565. All taxes and charges are included. Happy holidays from Mermaid Theatre and MIPAC!
