Dear Parents and Guardians,
The audition for Missoula Children’s Theatre’s production of The Little Mermaid will be
held on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 4:00 p.m. at Young Auditorium, 900 W. Main St.,
Whitewater, WI 53190 (on the UW-Whitewater campus). There are roles for students in
Kindergarten (age 5) through 12
grade (age 18). Approximately 50-60 local students
will be cast to appear in the show with the two MCT Tour Actors/ Directors. There is no
guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play. Students wishing to
audition must arrive by 4:00 p.m. and stay for the entire two-hour session. The first
two-hour rehearsal begins approximately 15-30 minutes after the audition.
This is a group audition – no advanced preparation is necessary, but a smile never hurts.
Students should just be ready to come and have a good time!
Rehearsals will be conducted on Monday following the audition and casting session from
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, and in two sessions Tuesday through Friday from 4:00 pm to 6:00
pm and 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Young Auditorium. Although not all cast members will
be needed at every session, those auditioning must have a clear schedule for the
entire week and if selected, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role. A
detailed rehearsal schedule will be distributed at the conclusion of the audition. Cast
members scheduled for the full 4 ½ hours of rehearsal will be asked to bring a sack
dinner or snack to eat during the break between rehearsal sessions.
The performance will be held on Saturday, January 31, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. and will be
presented at Young Auditorium. The children in the cast will be called for dress
rehearsal before the performance that day. All cast members must be available for the
dress rehearsal and the scheduled performance.
Missoula Children’s Theatre is a non-profit organization based in Missoula, Montana.
