The Little Mermaid

Thanks so much to everyone who auditioned for Smiles and Frowns Playhouse's production of "The Little Mermaid." We are looking forward to working with all of these amazing young people. Please follow the link to indicate that you/your child is accepting the role that has been offered to them. Also note that if this is first time that you have been involved with Smiles and Frowns Playhouse, there is a Zoom meeting for new parents or caregivers scheduled for 7pm on Thursday, September 14th. More information about the rehearsal schedule will be posted soon. We look forward to seeing everyone at the combined full cast call and parents meeting on September 18th at 6:30pmin the auditorium of the Ayden Arts and Recreation building. Welcome to our newest adventure "down deep in the sea!"

Who may audition, and when?

Children in grades K-12 are eligible; a link to the signup list will be posted on the website and Facebook page prior to auditions for specific day and time slots.

How should we prepare?

  • Young readers (K-2) should recite a poem.
  • Older readers will read from the script (pages provided at auditions).
  • All actors may be asked to demonstrate vocal range, movement capability, pretend to be a character, etc.
  • Forms will be available online and in person to fill out.
  • Bring a small photo for the director (not returned).
  • No fees will be collected until a child is cast.
  • Remember to have fun!

May I watch my child?

We ask that only auditioning children enter the room, both to prevent distractions and limit the fear factor of performing for an audience. Young actors unable to audition in this setting may need to wait before joining us on stage.
