Meow Meow's Little Mermaid

// is a fairy tale gone rogue.

  • Event Type / Cabaret Theatre
  • When / 28 Jan – 14 Feb
  • Where / Merlyn Theatre
  • Seating / Arena U-Shape
  • Duration / 1 hour 20 mins
  • Warning / Contains strobe lighting, haze effects and some coarse language

Meow Meow’s Little Mermaid / is a decidedly un-Disney cabaret, where sexy spectacle drips into 
a bittersweet take on what constitutes a ‘happy ending’. Join post-postmodern diva Meow Meow as she raucously subverts Hans Christian Andersen’s mermaid tale of teen self-sacrifice, salvation and seduction.

A world of old sea shanties and hymns from the Titanic will give way to a glittering array of contemporary originals, as she sails to a land of altered hearts, minds and body parts.

In part two of the ‘little’ trilogy that began with Meow Meow’s Little Match Girl in 2011,
 the cat is back, and she’s not afraid to go into the water! This operatic and outrageous sea ride features a posse of real life princes. Forget the fairy tale you thought you knew, this rollicking affair / is a fairy tale gone rogue.

★★★★★ This saucy romp through Andersen's aquatic fable is cabaret perfection.

– Limelight Magazine

★★★★ [Meow Meow] holds nothing back, and you can’t help but shuffle out of this show smiling.

– ArtsHub

Meow Meow is that rare combination – devilish funny bones and heavenly vocal chords.
