2014 SEASON INCLUDES:

Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID
Scott S Anderson - Director Little Mermaid
Derryl Yeager - Choreo Little Mermaid
1st Reh: 4/21/14. Runs: 5/31/14 - w/o 10/18 or 10/24
Seeking:

ARIEL:
Female. To play late teens. A mermaid girl on the verge of maturity. A soon-to-be-siren with a frisky sense of fun. An innocent, headstrong and spirited, overflowing with feelings that are fathoms deep, and daring to dream about a different world, the world above the sea. Must move well, but need not be a trained dancer. Vocal range: Crystal clear flawless belt to E.

ERIC:
Male. To play early 20s. A prince among men, possessed of all the royal attributes that leave the girls breathless. But beneath the easy charm, the handsome face and the instinctive courage, lurks a reluctant ruler who’d happily trade his crown for a life on the bounding main, who’d gladly renounce his throne in search of something to fight for, someone to love. Vocal range: Must be able to sing in a very controlled lyrical tenor or baritenor. Gorgeous soaring sound to A.

TRITON:
Male. To play late 30s or 40s. The Son of Poseidon, King of the Undersea World, with a profound belief that the Human World is dangerous and to be shunned. A powerful and uncompromising monarch. The harried father of seven mermaid daughters. Commanding, regal, charismatic, sexy – and, when it comes to his girls, especially his youngest, Ariel – a doting and deeply devoted dad. Vocal range: booming baritone to strong E.

URSULA:
Female. To play 30s or 40s. A Sea Witch and Triton’s estranged (and none-to-happy-about-it) sister, banished forever for dabbling in The Black Arts. Personality as huge as her ambition. Tentacles as numerous as her devilish spells. Wildly smart, sinister and sarcastic. Luxuriously sexy, sultry and statuesque. Desperate to overthrow her brother and reclaim the undersea realm once and for all! Vocal range: Dramatic alto down to E. Big Belt to C# with strong head voice to a G.

GRIMSBY:
Male. To play 30s - 50s. Prince Eric’s British guardian. Long-suffering, no-nonsense and big-hearted. More a companion and confidant than a guardian, without whose astute counsel Eric would be lost, and at sea. A source of advice, a center of gravity. Occasionally exasperated by, but entirely devoted to, his young charge, the Prince. Vocal range: Light character vocals only, patter a la Gilbert and Sullivan.

SEBASTIAN:
Caribbean male in his 20s - 50s. A crab. The court composer, world-class suck-up to King Triton, and a ‘side-stepper’ by nature. Ariel’s unwilling protector under the sea, and later, in the inhospitable world above. Speaks with a Caribbean accent. Good sense of comedy, good dancer and singer. Vocal range: Strong character calypso sound. Baritone to E.

SCUTTLE:
Male. To play 30s or 40s. A seagull. Fancies himself the ocean’s Greatest Living Expert on humans and their peculiar (and often revolting) stuff. Full of confidence, positivity, and, of course, feathers. Ariel depends on him for the bird’s-eye view of the world and life. A real song and dance man-type, will tap. Vocal range: Very strong character tenor or baritenor with a solid high A.

FLOUNDER:
To play a boy fish who can sing and move well. A little fish in a big pond. A faithful friend small enough to look up to the little mermaid, Ariel. What he lacks in courage he more than makes up for in enthusiasm. Ages 12 -14

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM:
To play 20s or 30s. Two eels, high-voltage low-lifes who are Ursula’s lackeys and partners in crime. Ssslippery, ssslimy sssnakes in the (sea) grass. Good comic actors and good movers. Vocal range: Light seductive tenor to B with falsetto to a high D.

LOUIS:
A human, French Chef extraordinaire, a culinary perfectionist with a particular affinity for dishes with fishes. Must be a good dancer. Vocal range: Sings Les Poissons a la Maurice Chevalier. A character baritone.
