Mermaid Act


Hire this wonderful, stunning mermaid act as a beautiful addition to your event. Franklin James have two octopus and urchin clad mermaids straight from the depths of the sea that can create a stunning visual for any event. Their unique look is made with custom prosthetics and body paint giving this fantasy character a believability that has amazed audiences time and again.

The mermaids work beautifully as a living installation for guests to encounter as they first arrive, they can be placed anywhere in a venue to work with an existing theme or design, or we can create a custom-made area for the mermaids to occupy. Hire a sailor character or two to go with our mermaids and suddenly they can become ‘walk-about characters’ – ‘Walk about’ becoming a hilarious concept – Audiences enjoy seeing the troubles that are encountered when you have a fin instead of legs!

As the sailors carry the mermaids around the event they can stop and interact with guests with cheeky sea shanties on acoustic instruments, comically dramatic poetry or monologues of the torments of life at sea.

All our characters are versatile in the way they perform and our actors are more than happy to adapt performances to audience tastes and requirements. We can create musical performances or interactive games like ‘message in a bottle’ where guests are encouraged to write notes to other guests, hand delivered by a poetic French speaking sailor. Fire eating mermaids? Anything is possible!

They are available to performance for up to a 90 min performance in sets if required.
