The Little Mermaid Jr Enrollment (Ages 4-11) May 8th, 12:00 pm

The Little Mermaid JR. Auditions May 8th – 12:00 pm

Spotlight Acting School

Students Age 4-11

All Students age 4-11 will be cast.

We picked The Little Mermaid JR. for our summer production for our littlest actors. This show offers several roles suitable for a range of young actors and is very active and fun.  This show will have an expanded age range to better suit our summer attendance and to help with this being about twice the length and size of a typical 30-45 minute “Kids” musical. We hope to have two entire casts, we call them Blue and Purple.  Come join the fun and become part of the Spotlight family.

Summer vacations are excusable absences and will not be held against students auditioning, so long as the dates the student will be missing are communicated early.  

Students will be expected to sing a song (Happy Birthday is fine) and follow instructions (Act like an animal, Show us a sad face, Etc.) Optional monologues will be accepted after the regular audition process.

In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home — and her fins — behind and live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she’s the girl whose enchanting voice he’s been seeking.

Age waivers to older students may be granted.  Students in the designated age range will be cast first. Please ask for age waivers early and know that you may not be cast in the show if all the roles are filled by the designated age range students.

Based on the popular Disney Channel Original Movies, Disney’s Descendants: The Musical is a brand-new musical comedy featuring beloved characters and hit songs from the films!

It is present-day, and in the kingdom of Auradon, all of Disney’s beloved heroes and royalty are living happily ever after, safe from the terrifying villains and troublesome sidekicks they have banished to the magic-free Isle of the Lost. That is until Ben, the benevolent teenage son of Belle and King Adam (The Beast), offers a chance of redemption for the troublemaking offspring of the evilest villains. Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos – the children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella De Vil, and Jafar – are welcomed to Auradon Prep to attend school with the children of their parents’ sworn enemies. Now entering a completely foreign world and way of life, the four Villain Kids have a difficult choice to make: should they follow in their parents’ wicked footsteps or learn to be good?

“Oh, the thinks you can think” when Dr. Seuss’s best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens, and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphantly!
