Four Seasons musical needs Mermaid cast

If you want to dance, sing and act, musical theatre may be for you

Want to sing, act and dance where it’s better, down where it’s wetter, under the sea?

Auditions for the Four Seasons Musical Theatre’s rendition of classic Disney film The Little Mermaid, which hits the stage at Langford’s Isabelle Reader Theatre next spring, might just be for you.

The production is set to the music of eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken and includes such well-known classics as “Under the Sea,” “Part of your World” and “Kiss the Girl.” The story follows young mermaid Ariel, who trades her tail for legs with scheming sea witch Ursula, who hopes to take over the sea ruled by Ariel’s father, King Triton.

Stage director Douglas Crockett takes the helm of the story, while Terry Rowsell is producing the show along with music director Yanik Giroux and choreographer Deanna Coleman.

Auditions for all major roles, including Ariel, Prince Eric, King Triton, Ursula, Flounder, Sebastian, and other smaller roles, happen Jan. 9 and 10 at the Four Seasons Musical Theatre playhouse at 1500A Admirals Rd. For more information or to book an audition, visit and email
