The Fisherman and His Wife in Ann Arbor

"There was once a fisherman who lived with his wife in a miserable little hovel close to the sea. He went to fish every day, and he fished and fished, and at last one day… "

He caught a mermaid! That is when the tale of The Fisherman and His Wife, really starts to unfurl. While the fisherman opts to set the mermaid free upon catching her, his wife encourages him to retrieve the mermaid to grant them wishes.

If you want to see how the story unfolds – especially if your kids aren't familiar with this Brothers Grimm classic – catch the musical adaptation of this famous story when it hits the stage at the Performance Network Theatre in Ann Arbor for one show on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2012.

Set to lively music that's sure to keep your kids entertained, this show also teaches children an important life lesson about greed.

See the show at 1 p.m. (it runs about 50 minutes – a perfect pick for younger kids, ages pre-K to sixth grade). And it's followed by a milk and cookies reception! Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for children.

See the Metro Parent listing for more on The Fisherman and His Wife at the Performance Network Theatre.
