Those ages 6 and older are invited to journey under the sea with Ariel and her aquatic friends by auditioning for Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Jr.”
Auditions will be held May 18 and May 19 at 4:30 p.m. at the Andy Griffith Playhouse.
There are numerous roles available in the production for ages 6 and older, and an ensemble. Those auditioning will be asked to sing and read from the script, but no prepared piece is required.
Performances will be June 20, June 21, and June 22 at 4 p.m. at the Andy Griffith Playhouse.
Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Jr.” will be directed by Joshua Whitt with musical direction by Jane Tesh.
Whitt was most recently seen at the Andy Griffith Playhouse as Joseph in the Surry Arts Council’s production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” In addition to his involvement with community theater, Whitt is the director of music at Bethabara Moravian Church and a private voice instructor.
“I’m really looking forward to directing this show,” Whitt said. “This story is a favorite of mine and I love to work with children of all ages. The enthusiasm and energy that they bring is unmatched.”
Fans of the movie will recognize the beloved story of “The Little Mermaid.” In a magical underwater kingdom, the young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home — and her fins — behind and live in the world above. But first she will have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she is the girl whose enchanting voice he has been seeking.
Tickets are on sale now for the production. For additional information, contact the Surry Arts Council at 786-7998 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
