Professional.      Believable.     Safe.
The MerFriends is a professional troupe of believable mermaids, mermen, and pirates.


The pirates, mermaids, and mermen are all originally from the NeverLand Lagoon. After Peter Pan defeated Captain Hook once and for all, the pirates needed a job. Merfolk are always up for fun, so they joined together and set sail for this great place called Texas to seek adventure. 

Since forming, the mermaids and mermen have worked together to perfect their water skills. They also wrote and choreographed their various shows. The pirates have attended stage combat workshops, learning to adequately handle the very real swords and daggers. Each member of the troupe is CPR, First Aide, and Lifeguard certified. The MerFriends have swim practice twice a week, inservice training once a quarter, and rehearsals for performances as needed. They have all been through a 3 month apprenticeship, preparing for their appearances with senior performers. Our commitment is to be Professional, Believable, and Safe which requires ongoing training and practice.

When booking The MerFriends, you can specify which troupe members you want.
All appearances come with TWO (2) performers, and you can mix and match any two.
(Some events will require the second performer to be a MerWrangler so to maintain the illusion.) 
Three or more troupe members can always be scheduled at a discounted rate.
