Davis Musical Theatre Company’s Young Performers Theatre announces auditions for its upcoming production of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid, Jr.”
Jan Isaacson will direct and choreograph this fanciful adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless fairy tale. The show features Academy Award-winning music by Alan Menken, and there are a wide range of roles available for boys and girls, teens and children.
Auditions will run from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, July 29, and Tuesday, July 30, at the Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive in Davis. Select call-backs are Wednesday, July 31.
Auditions require singing, acting and dancing at the director’s discretion, so auditioners should arrive with appropriate shoes, as well as sheet music of a song they are prepared to sing (please do not use a song from the show). A piano accompanist will be provided; no recorded music or a cappella singing, please.
Actors ages 7 to 17 may participate, as well as 18-year-old high school students or seniors who graduate this year. No experience is required, but selection is by audition. For those cast in the production, a $75 participation fee plus costuming costs are required, as well as 25 parent volunteer hours. Scholarships are available on a limited basis.
The general rehearsal schedule is 4:30 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, beginning on Aug. 5. Performances are on weekends from Sept. 21 through Oct. 13.
