In a magical kingdom fathoms below, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula, and convince Prince Eric that she’s the girl with the enchanting voice.
Adpated from Disney’s Broadway production, The Little Mermaid, Jr. features the songs “Part of Your World,” “She’s in Love,” and the Oscar-winning “Under the Sea.”
The large cast includes Ariel, Carlotta, Chef Louis, chefs, Flotsam and Jetsam, Flounder, Grimsby, gulls, King Triton, merfolk, Ariel’s sisters, Pilot, Prince Eric, princesses, sailors, Scuttle, sea creatures, Sebastian, and Ursula. Cast details may be found on the Music Theatre International website.
All actors will be asked to sing 24 measures of a song found on the audition schedule web page, as well as read from the script. Everyone will be asked to learn a short dance combination, so all should come dressed to move, with their hair tied back. Also, actors should bring a current photo, if they have one, as well as a list of all rehearsal conflicts.
Rehearsals will be scheduled weekdays, except Wednesdays, from 4 to 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m., from January 2 – February 13. Most cast members will only be needed three to four times per week for a limited time. Mermaid will run for 12 performances from February 14 – March 1 on Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., as well as Sundays at 2 p.m.
There will be a $75 fee for each cast member due at the first rehearsal/parents meeting, which covers the cost of a t-shirt, makeup kit, Saturday performance meals, and headshot. Scholarships are available, if needed.
It will be directed by John H. Potter with music director Erin Maher and choreographer Christina Leines.
