The Fundy Film Society will present Cas and Dylan on Jan. 5.

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia will present Leo Lionni’s Swimmy, Frederick & Inch for hometown audiences before the production heads off on a four-month tour of the United States and a visit to the Pittsburgh Children’s Festival.
Lionni's collage works are ideally suited for Mermaid’s unique approach to stage adaptation. The three Caldecott Honor books Mermaid has chosen for its tribute are among Lionni’s most beloved works. Their images are strikingly beautiful and the texts are whimsical yet wistful.
The hour-long performance features the innovative puppets and original music that have won international acclaim for Mermaid Theatre.
Avonport resident Jim Morrow, Mermaid’s artistic director, directed the show and served as production designer. Steven Naylor, Mermaid’s artistic consultant for music and sound design, created the evocative soundscape.
Company members include Christine Oakey, stage manager, and performers Kaitlin Morrow and Seann Murray.
The local performance will take place on Jan. 11 at 11 a.m. at the Mermaid Imperial Performing Arts Centre in Windsor. Suggested age range is two to eight.
Admission is $14 for adults, $12 for students, seniors and children. Tickets are available online at Ticketpro.ca, by phone at 1-888-311-9090, and in person at Windsor Home Hardware and all Ticketpro outlets.
