Testimonials

Leif Green - Senior Director of Creative Services, MZA Events Inc.

Mermaid Alisa & Merman Thommy of Dark Tide Productions performing at Pirate Invasion of Long Beach!


"The merfolk we got from Dark Tide Productions were fin-tastic!  Having them in the fountain at Grand Park was a magical, memorable way to add dazzle and delight to the AIDS Walk Los Angeles Finish Line.  The actors were so agreeable and patient with our participants.  We are so appreciative."

Rachel Smith — Mermaid and Mom

"Dark Tide Productions are consummate professionals, experienced performers, and their water workers are some of the best in the country. When I work with Jax and his team, I am always impressed by their attention to detail, and the genuine passion they bring to their art. They do their research and homework, and create concepts and events that are not only high-quality and memorable, but deeply and almost spiritually connected to myth, culture and rooted in fantastical dreams. I could not reccomend a more hardworking or dependable group of performers"

Eddie Shapiro — Gay Days Anaheim Co-Founder & Producer

"The mer-folk of Dark Tide Productions add that certain unexpected magical zing to our annual pool party. Yes, we have all the usual elements: décor, DJ, hot-bodied people in skimpy suits; but the mer-folk are such an unusual and whimsical addition, they tip the scales for us to the level of fabulous! Plus, in their human incarnations, they couldn’t be nicer, easier to work with, or more professional.  I’d be a happy guest at any party at which they are frolicking."
