Hmmm, I guess Sierra Boggess is a good choice, she does look like Ariel; and she kind of sounds like her too.

It is to my understanding that aforementioned Boston Conservatory senior Chelsea Stock has been cast as a member of the ensemble and as an Ariel cover. That's all I know though.

I wonder about the Flouder boys. Boys because, being Disney, I'm sure there are two...

I am personally hoping for Henry Hodges and Alex Rutherford. =)

I highly doubt that is a Disney-exclusive policy.

If they want the same actress to play Ursula and Vanessa (Ursula in disguise as pretty young human), then she's not quite within the sought-after age range.

I still want Sara Ramirez. *pouts*

If Sierra Boggess is cast as Ariel, she must be leaving Phantom in Vegas soon.

Some of us are in the industry and have access to insider casting info. We do not divulge specifics of exactly where we get our information so as to protect our sources from getting in trouble.
Sometimes things turn out not to be true but it all gets verified or unverified when the press release comes out.
As far as I know from my sources, the info in this thread so far is pretty accurate.
Other than that, did you enjoy the play Mrs Lincoln?

Woah I did childrens theatre with Chelsea Stock in San Jose! Way to go Chelsea!

We were brother and sister in THE SOUND OF MUSIC, this clearly means I should be Eric to her Ariel when she is bumped up to the little fish herself...

Is Sherie Renee Scott alto? That's what they're looking for for the role of Ursula. Plus her voice sounds a bit too young to play her. And, Ursula is supposed to envy Ariel's beautiful voice and I don't think Sherie's voice would leave anything to be envied...

Lea DeLaria as Ursula... !!!

Love Kelli O'Hara, but strikes me as a bit too old to play Ariel.

Kerry Butler would seem so obvious.

Sierra Boggess was a stellar Cosette on tour with "Les Mis," as well as a wonderful Christine in the Vegas production of "Phantom." I'm sure she will make a first rate Ariel.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

Sierra Boggess has been cast, just happened within the last week or so I believe. As far as the others go I don't know how much is set in stone but I'd like to see Ursula go to someone like Emily Skinner. I hope they officially announce the cast soon though, then I can decide whether to trip to Denver this summer or not.

Cheers,

Christopher

Sheri Renee Scott is Ursula, an interesting choice.

I read Pat Carroll was going to be Ursula, but as the voice of the Ursula Puppet. Probably a rumour I guess.

Still voting for Kerry to be Ariel, shes 'BEAUTIFUL'

So anyone know how they are going to get away with the fish tails on the mermaids, without the use of water or airial stunts? Any news leaked on this yet?

As for Eric, if he wasn't tied up with Pirate Queen, Hadley Fraser all the way. Or Marcus Chait for that matter. re: Mermaid casting

re: Mermaid casting

I was thinking like they do for Disney On Ice. (^) But They would have to walk across the stage... wouldn't they? Will they use wires for the swimming effect?

"Sierra Boggess HAS been cast as Ariel. "

How do you know? Who is Sierra Boggess?? Can she sing like Ariel as good as Jodi Benson and Kerri Butler?
