Audition Information:
(REGISTRATION LINK AT THE END OF PAGE)
Due to the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, the directors are taking a creative approach to casting this production so that we are able to proceed with the show. Due to this, some roles have been pre-cast to enable us to assure that we can bring some Disney magic to the stage in this stressful time. As well as pre-casting certain tracks, we are also dividing ensemble into 'singers, dancers, gymnasts' to ensure that our rehearsal process moves smoothly towards an outstanding production. Of course, if you're capable of doing more than JUST singing or JUST dancing, you will be considered for both. 
 
OPEN ROLES INCLUDE:

PRINCE ERIC

Vocal part: B3-D5
Age: 18-23
Prince Eric is the adventurous prince who captures Ariel's heart. Look for a charming performer with a sensitive nature. Prince Eric has a few small solos, but it is more important to cast a strong actor in this role.
KING TRITON

Age: 35-50
Ariel's father, and King of the sea. Commanding presence that will do anything to protect his daughters from the world above.

Prince Eric's British guardian. Droll, stuffy, and constantly urging Eric towards his royal duties, specifically marriage.

A select number of children to fill out sea creatures. Must be good listeners, able to follow direction, and are comfortable with independence.

PLEASE FILL OUT THE REGISTRATION FORM SO WE HAVE PARENTS CONTACT INFORMATION.
TO AUDITION:
If you are interested in participating in the show, please click on the link below to register. After registering, all auditions must be self-taped and submitted through our email at dwmtproductions@gmail.com. Submissions must include a clip of you singing 16-32 bars of a song in the style of the show (I.E. any other Alan Menken musical), to piano accompaniment or a backing track. Acapella submissions will not be accepted. If auditioning for dance or gymnast ensemble tracks, please include a 1 minute dance/gymnastics reel. If auditioning for a lead/supporting track, please include a 1 minute monologue, fully memorized. 
We understand that video auditions are not our normal for casting shows and we want you to know that, considering the circumstances, we don't expect Broadway quality audition reels!  In fact, some of the tapes we have gotten are really entertaining because of the distractions! All we are looking for is ability to hold pitch, vocal range, dance ability (tap or other) or a combination of all of the above. We want to know how well you can memorize a monologue so we know if you can memorize script in a short amount of time if cast in a lead or supporting role. HAVE FUN!  We directors could benefit from some really fun and entertaining videos. The best way to get us a video is to record yourself with your smartphone, then upload the video to youtube and make it private (unless you want a bigger audience) and email us the link. Video files are generally too big to email. You can also submit a video using the "Message Us" option on our Facebook page.  Don't hesitate to email us if you are having challenges and please don't be afraid to try this.  We are excited to watch your video!
If you have ANY questions, email us at dwmtproductions@gmail.com
FINAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Friday, April 24th
We look forward to collaborating with you to bring some light and magic back to the Treasure Valley.
