The Un-Common Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for our Young Performers Production Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR.

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.

Written to flow seamlessly between land and sea, Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR. provides plenty of opportunities to bring these locations to life through creative movement and configurations. The fantasy of being underwater means your entire cast and crew can let their imaginations run wild. 

Auditions for students in Grades 1 through 6 will be held on Sunday, February February 4, 2024 beginning at 10 am BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

For all roles, please prepare 16 bars of music (about 30-60 seconds) from a song that you are familiar with. It could be a song from a different Disney musical, a Christmas Carol, or anything you feel comfortable singing. Please no pop/rock songs or songs from The Little Mermaid. Please bring sheet music in the key in which you are singing for our accompanist. Please, no a cappella.

Rehearsals are scheduled on Sunday afternoons from 1:00-4:00 pm and Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 pm in Foxboro and Mansfield. Not all cast members will be required to be at all rehearsals. A rehearsal schedule will be made once the show is cast. Extra nights may be added as the show nears production week. Cast members are not allowed any absences the week prior to the show.

The production will take place May 17-19, 2024.

Production Fee: $300 This will be due at the first rehearsal. The production fees include a show t-shirt, professional pictures for downloading, and entrance for the cast member to the opening night party and the Sunday cast party. Like most everything in the past few year, our expenses have gone up, including our cast fees. However, we at Un-Common believe that theatre should always be accessible. As such, we do provide scholarships. If this is the one thing keeping your child from participating, please just reach out to the show producers, no questions asked.
