Announcing auditions for THE LITTLE MERMAID jr.! 

 Ready to take the stage?

Stagecraft produces 2 main-stage productions every year, offering students the chance to put their talents and training to use. Stagecraft strives to focus every experience on learning and growth. Auditions provide an opportunity for students to gain self-confidence and performing experience in a safe, fun, and encouraging environment!

Students ages 8 to 18 who are enrolled in Stagecraft Classes are eligible to audition.


ABOUT THE SHOW

Journey "under the sea" with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney's The Little Mermaid JR., adapted from Disney's Broadway production and the motion picture (featuring the enormously popular Academy Award-winning music and delightfully charming book and lyrics). Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories, Disney's The Little Mermaid JR.is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance.

In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home — and her fins — behind and 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 the handsome Prince Eric that she's the girl whose enchanting voice he's been seeking.


HOW DO AUDITIONS WORK?

The audition process is split into 2 parts.

At the General Audition, students will be called into the audition room in small groups. Auditions are closed to family and friends. Each student will be asked to introduce themselves, present their audition form, and read for the director of the show. 

After the general audition, the artistic team may ask some students to participate in Callbacks. These students may be asked to do cold reads from the script of the show.

When the cast list is complete, it will be posted here on the Stagecraft website and everyone who auditioned will be notified.


REHEARSALS

Rehearsals are every Friday from 6PM-9PM and Saturday from 10AM-3PM.

Dress rehearsals will be held nightly during the week of the show and are mandatory for all cast members.

Students may not be needed at every rehearsal. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be released after casting which will attempt to comply with any listed conflicts.

All conflicts must be listed on the Audition Form, and additional conflicts may not be added. Stagecraft strives to teach the importance of commitment, therefore, attendance and punctuality are documented and may affect future Stagecraft participation.


PARENT COMMITMENT

Stagecraft is a family affair! On the Audition Form, parents are asked to sign committing to attend 2 mandatory parent meetings and volunteer a minimum of 20 hours on pre-show and show-week parent committees. Committees cover every aspect of producing a show, including sets, costumes, lights, sound, tickets, concessions, souvenirs, backstage crew, and many more. Our shows would not be possible without the dedication and investment of each family!
