Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Dive Under The Sea With The Burdekin Singers And Theatre Company

The Whitsundays are invited to head north this February for the latest cultural instalment from the Burdekin Theatre which is showcasing a magical story of finding true love.

Hans Christian Andersen’s classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, has been transformed into a beautiful musical that the Whitsunday region is invited to enjoy under the talents of The Burdekin Singers and Theatre Company.

The tale begins in a magical deep-sea kingdom where a young mermaid, Ariel, dreams of leaving her ocean home to live in the world above. With the help of her comedic companions, Flounder, Scuttle, and of course Sebastian, her journey becomes a heart-warming quest to find true love as a mermaid in a world full of humans.

With this lovable production live in the Burdekin Theatre from next week, the Burdekin Singers and Theatre Company along with volunteers, community support, and sponsors, have been working tirelessly to polish off what is set to be one of their best shows yet with audiences set to be blown away.

The magical approach the Burdekin Singers and Theatre Company have taken to the direction of The Little Mermaid will prove to be celebrated from their opening night on Friday, February 2.

This production would not be possible without the broader community’s support, and the Burdekin Singers and Theatre Company wishes to express their immense gratitude to every member of the audience.
