Description:

Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World."

Show Notes:

Mandatory Show Parent Meetings:
Regardless of your previous involvement in CYT, anyone interested in auditioning for The Little Mermaid MUST be present for one of the below meetings:
Saturday, December 11th at 2pm
Saturday, December 11th at 4pm
Saturday, December 11th at 6pm

You only need to come to one of these meetings, and coming to a meeting doesn't commit you to participating. This is just to make sure that everyone has the necessary information about the process, expectations, and more. If you cannot make one of these meetings, but still want to participate, please email our Show Coordinator at shows@cytsanantonio.org.
If you do not have a family representative present for one of these meetings and you don't connect with our Show Coordinator to get the information, your child will not be able to audition for the show.

Auditions:
Students enrolled for the Winter Session of classes are eligible to sign up for an audition slot through their family account! Auditions will be on Friday, December 17th where students will bring their prepared material (see below). Saturday, December 18th, all students will be needed for Dance Call from 10am-12:30pm. Callbacks will follow for students who are asked to stay to read and sing for specific characters.

Students will need to prepare:
A one minute cut of a song (this song should NOT be from The Little Mermaid. We suggest something Disney if this is your first time auditioning. Your track needs to be a karaoke track with no words)

If families do not sell their 10 tickets by the time the show closes, the remaining dollar amount will be charged to the Family Account. More information will be coming with details!
