REHEARSALS: If selected to be part of the acting cast of The Little Mermaid, your child will be required to attend rehearsals on a regular basis from October 2023-June 2024. A rehearsal schedule will be sent to you with dates and times your child will need to attend rehearsal (your child will not be required to attend every rehearsal).

Actors will be brought in with their audition group (6-8 performers). They will then introduce themselves and read a set of lines of their choosing from the character sheet. Each audition group will last 10-15 minutes.  Actors will then be excused and emailed if they are chosen for callbacks. Callbacks will be emailed by 8pm on August 26th.
