The Alpha Show of The Little Mermaid


The story looks at the ramifications of not being in harmony with truth. The voice, our main way of expressing ourselves, is the primary symbol in this story. When we compromise truth, we will find our voice lost as well… Learn more


Classic Fairytale

We went right back to Hans Christian’s version and looked at what he was really trying to express. One of the most beloved fairytales of all time, now with the magic of an Alpha Show! Learn more

Touring since 2011

This is our newest Alpha show, but already feels like it’s been refined and improved for years.

About the Show

Alpha’s The Little Mermaid humourously and powerfully captures the magic of what is Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale of tragedy and love from another world. Without the depressing ending! This was Hans’ favourite story that he wrote, but the fairytale very much mimicked and reflected his own pain about never finding love, or the loss of love once received.

We obviously believe in the power of love and wanted a moving story that also highlighted what might prevent us from receiving and creating a life that is full of love – a lack of truth. So our Ariel is like many teenagers, afraid of her dad’s anger and lies to protect herself and hide her true desires of being part of the overland and humanity.

These powerful metaphors move us at a deep level beyond what we consciously perceive. The show also has a great pace and energy, with lots of standard Alpha gags that audiences love and some new comedy that we’ve never tried before! With some familiar and some very original Alpha characters like a New Zealand sea horse and an Aussie yabbi, we know you’ll find the whole show hilarious and entertaining!

Values Theme: TRUTH

Outcome: To bring children back in line with their own personal truth and to release the fears that prevent us from being truthful to ourselves and others ever day.


Fears from childhood of being truthful are a part of almost everyone’s soul. There are powerful emotional reasons that stop us from being in truth, not only with others, but also with ourselves. This show looks at the consequences of being out of harmony with truth, and how to emotionally process the causes behind this desire.

Truth is one of the most important lessons to learn on the path to a more loving soul. This show beautifully and lovingly deals with the issue without preaching.

Colouring Sheets

None yet! Incidentally, the reason we do not have any colouring sheets as yet (like all the other shows) is that we need someone who can draw really well, to trace or make nice pictures based on some of the photos we’ve taken. If you know of someone who would like to do that, please contact us.
