The Big Little Mermaid

When: Sat., April 3, 11 a.m. & 2 p.m. and Sun., April 4, 1 & 3 p.m. 2010

In Hans Christian Andersen's original The Little Mermaid, our be-flippered protagonist attempts to avoid a fate of dissolving into sea foam by trading her voice for a pair of legs that will bleed a lot and always make her feel like she's walking on sword blades. Then she has to make doe eyes at the prince and secure love, or it's all back to sea foam anyway. So, with that in mind, enjoy the Manitou Art Theatre's (1367 Pecan St., Manitou Springs, themat.org) friendlier adaptation, Big Little Mermaid, today at 1 and 3 p.m., (if you didn't see it yesterday at 11 a.m. or 2 p.m., that is). The show costs $10 and involves talking fish, mysterious messages and, yes, squirting books. — Bryce Crawford
