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.
CAST OF CHARACTERS (This show will be doublecast for the leads and supporting. Characters who are cast as Leads, will not understudy for any other roles. Instead, on their off days, they will assist backstage with hair, makeup, props, microphones and assisting with Stage Calls)
Flotsam & Jetsam
Mersisters (Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Atina, Adella, and Allana)
These actors will double as the 6 Princesses. Looking for actresses who are full of interchangeable personality.
ENSEMBLE AND FEATURES ROLES
Sea Chorus (for more skilled dancers -will double as Merfolk, Sea Creatures and Lagoon Animals)

Pilot of the Sailors -Head Sailor on Prince Eric's ship. Few speaking lines but confident singing voice is most important)
Sea Creatures-Several moments to showcase both dancers and singers in "Under the Sea"
Seahorse -Is the Court Hearald for King Triton. Non singing part, great for a performer with a clear speaking voice who can project
Gulls are Scuttles flock of zany "back-up singers" who help explain human stuff to Ariel. (3 principal roles, but additional Gulls will be added for vocal support)
Tentacles -Extensions of Ursula. 6-8 performers who work well as a unit
Chef Louis -Over the Top Head Chef in the Palace. Wiled and Frenetic. Looking for comedic performer.
Chefs -Employees in palace kitchen. Good choral singers required as the music in "Les Poissons" can be challenging!
