Little Mermaid Auditions!

Auditions for Disney’s The Little Mermaid will be held on Monday, May 13th and Tuesday, May 14th from 6:00-8:00 PM at the Ouachita Little Theatre, 610 Mena Street. Information regarding callbacks will be sent out after auditions. Performances will run July 26, 27, 28, and August 2, 3, 4.

This will be an open call audition, but we ask that the auditioners NOT sit in the audience to observe others auditioning. The director wants everyone to have a respectful and undisturbed audition experience. The lobby will be used as a waiting room. In order to not crowd the space, once you are finished with your audition, please do not stay at the theatre.

You will be asked to sing a 16-32 bar cut of a song you have prepared, preferably something in the style of the show. This can be performed acapella, or with a backing track you provide. This will count as both your singing AND acting audition. Please demonstrate your acting abilities as well as your vocal skills in your song.
