Auditions For "The Little Mermaid"

Artists Civic Theatre and Studio will hold auditions for “The Little Mermaid” on Monday, June 13th and Tuesday June 14th at 6:00 p.m. at the One Reid Street Theatre on the corner of Reid and South Railroad Avenue.

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."

Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

Production dates are Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 9th - 25th. School shows may be done as well. Our production will be directed by Jordan Gribble. Roles are available for 11 characters plus Ensemble. Audition will consist of a prepared song selection and cold readings and a choreography audition. Please wear clothes you can comfortably move in. Cold readings will be from selected scenes from the script. Please prepare a 1 minute song, not from this play. Please plan to arrive 30 minutes early to register.
