The Little Mermaid

CHARACTER AUDITIONS

$10 cash fee to audition
Ages: 5th grade-12th grade ONLY
We choose our character’s based on age and acting abilities, not just dance abilities, which means all levels are welcome to come and audition if they fit the age requirements (please see below with audition requirements). All students planning on auditioning must be students of Parker Dance Academy. Character rehearsals will take place during the weekends of May and beginning of June with possible extra rehearsals during the day (after the kids have finished school). They might also be asked to attend certain classes if they have been placed in dances as their characters.  Please remember that even though we double and triple cast parts, there are not enough leads for all who audition, but we want to make sure everyone who is interested in joining DOES get the opportunity to participate so, everyone who auditions will get an extra special part.
