Based on the novel by Mary Hayley Bell
Based on the film by Bryan Forbes

This adaptation of Mary Hayley Bell's celebrated novel and its film incarnation (which starred the author's daughter, Hayley Mills, and Alan Bates) was an absolute triumph in its English stage premiere and subsequent presentation at the Edinburgh Theatre Festival. We are extremely proud to announce its availability for production in the U.S. and Canada. When three rural children discover a wounded fugitive hiding in their barn, they believe him to be Jesus Christ. In a vow of secrecy, the village children harbor the stranger. When he is ultimately betrayed, the adults rush to 'save' their children with sorrowful consequences. A parable about faith, conviction and the fragile optimism of youth, WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND is a musical that soars with human spirit.

BWW Reviews: THE LITTLE MERMAID at Dallas Summer Musicals
by Kyle Christopher West - Mar 16, 2016

Although I don't remember seeing the film of THE LITTLE MERMAID in theatres, I do recall being five years old when the VHS tape was released. Watching on the 12-inch screen in my grandmother's guest room, I'd sing as I played, rewound and replayed the tape for hours on end. The fact that I'd have to wait for years to play my dream role onstage was then unimaginable. Later, when the Broadway production opened in 2007, not only had I not grown into a mezzo-soprano mermaid, but I'd also begun a different job with Disney Theatricals as a manager in their New Amsterdam Theatre. Despite sitting in on several meetings about Disney's plans to renovate the Lunt-Fontane Theatre for Ariel and her friends, I somehow never found myself "under the sea" during the show's brief run. This weekend's performance by Dallas Summer Musicals definitely showed me what I'd missed! (more...)
