Little Mermaid

The Un-Common Theatre Company is excited to announce auditions for our Fall Production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, to be presented at the Orpheum Theatre in Foxboro November 18-20, 2016.

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."

Things to Know About Un-Common Auditions

Auditions for Un-Common shows are open to all those interested within the age ranges specified. No previous acting experience or affiliation with the theatre company is necessary.

An auditioner will audition with many actors and will be offered a role at the total discretion of the director, choreographer and music director. Parent participation, affiliation with Un-Common Theatre or past involvement will not be considered in casting decisions. Every performer comes with different strengths and qualities and casting decisions are made based on many factors including talent (singing, dancing and acting), look (age/height/coloring), how auditioners look/interact as a group, etc. This process is often difficult and the creative team (director, music director and choreographer) takes great care in casting the best mix of performers for each production.

We customarily present four productions throughout our season. Auditions and performance dates for these shows are:
  Auditions Show Performances  
  September Fall Production November/December  
  December Young Performers Production March
  December or January Spring Production April
  May Young Adult Production July
  May Improv Soup Monthly October - June
