The Menopausal Mermaid

Join the Prime Timers for a Special Showing of the drag parody The Menopausal Mermaid. Prime Time members and their friends can use our special code PRIME when ordering to save $5 per ticket. Makes a great holiday gift too!

Cabaret-style table service for brunch-and-a-show (20% off brunch buffet with your show ticket so all-you-can-eat brunch for only $14).
Ariel, everyone’s darling from The Little Mermaid, is not feeling it. Betrayed by Eric, cursed by Ursula, she is ready to kick ass and take names in this 90 minute musical parody that picks up where the Disney fairy tale left off. Tired of playing by the rules, Ariel is reinventing herself, and along the way she takes on love, fame, Walt Disney, and anyone and anything that’s ever tried to keep a woman in her place.

The show is a kaleidoscope of fantastic drag, sexy sailors, outrageous costumes, and all your favorite 80s disco tracks re imagined and served up hot. Grab your bestie, throw on something cute, and get ready to rock the house with Ariel and her boys in this must see theater event!
