MainStage Audition Registration:
The Little Mermaid

A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film, The Lion King is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kingly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba's wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father's life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king. A vibrant and exciting tale from the great creatives at Disney, The Lion King is a story of love and redemption that nobody should miss.

Age Range

Auditions are open to actors ages 9 to 22.

Audition Requirements

Performers should prepare approximately 16 bars of a song and a one minute monologue. Please provide a copy of your sheet music, in a three ring binder, for the accompanist. Dress to impress (ie: no shorts, flip flops, or bare midriffs), and provide us with a current picture and resume. A school picture or snapshot is fine. Make sure that it looks like you. Important Tip: The purpose of the photo is to help us remember you, so do not provide photos of you wearing a hat, holding a pet, or soaking wet on the beach. "Recognizable" is absolutely more important than "cute." A few audition tips: Be on time, memorize your song, don't chew gum, and be courteous and professional before, during and after your audition.
