It’s Okay to Be Different is a production for very young audiences featuring three stories by Todd Parr, New York Times best-selling author and illustrator. It showcases a diverse cast, an innovative approach to puppetry manipulation and construction, and playful original music for which the Mermaid Theatre company has earned worldwide praise. With a blend of playfulness and sensitivity, It’s Okay to Be Different cleverly delivers the important messages of acceptance, understanding and self-confidence.
