Beauty and the Beast Jr Logo image

Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.  The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

Ages 10-18

The “denizens of the deep” admire the famous Rainbow Fish, the most beautiful fish in all the ocean. But when Rainbow Fish refuses to share his (or her!) vibrant, shimmering scales (played by separate actors who are an extension of Rainbow Fish), the whole ocean seems to turn against the vain creature. Unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus (whose tentacles are also played by separate actors). Octopus helps the young fish learn that it’s far better to be admired for being kind than for being beautiful.

Based on the international bestseller and award-winning book, The Rainbow Fish, with its wonderful message of friendship and belonging. 

 
Coming Soon!

Ages 7-18

Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo, who longs to explore the world beyond their anemone home. But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean. With the help of lovable characters such as optimistic Dory, laid-back sea turtle Crush, and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves.

Disney’s Finding Nemo JR. is a 60-minute musical adaptation of the beloved 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo, with new music by award-winning songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.

All registered participants will receive a role appropriate for their unique abilities.

All those interested in a singing role should prepare one of the music selections. There are non singing roles as well and no one has to sing solo but those who do not sing will not be considered for a solo role.

If an auditioner wishes to be considered for both Anna and Elsa they should prepare both songs for those characters. (Let it Go/First Time in Forever)

Each child is encouraged to choose and practice a character in one of the audition sides.  They should familiarize themselves with all the sides as they may be asked to read any character but they will have the opportunity to read the character/side they practiced. 

The audition for ages 7 - 10  will be a workshop with activities to get to know the kids and evaluate their talents without the pressure of a traditional audition situation.

Those interested in a singing solo should still prepare a music selection and will have the opportunity to sing it by themselves at the end of the hour.

Auditions for 11-18 will be more of a traditional audition in a group setting.  Each participant will sing the song they prepared and we will end with cold readings from the provided sides. Each participant will have a chance to read the side they practiced. 

Roles will be communicated to all participants by email.

Frozen JR. cast -  $175 

Frozen JR. crew - $25 

The registration fee covers all materials needed for the production, including scripts, costumes, set materials, props, etc.  Each student will also receive a production t-shirt and one complementary ticket to be . 

Actors may be asked to provide basic costume pieces from home, such as shoes, socks/hosiery, jeans/shorts, etc, as well as other personal items, such as hair accessories and make-up.  Any specialty items for costuming will be provided by the theatre.   

Yes!  If your child is between the ages of 12 and 18 and interested in lights, sound, props, set painting, stage management, choreography or helping backstage, please sign up for the "tech" class or reach out using the red "Contact Us" button.

Rehearsals will be Saturday mornings from 9-12 starting September 9.  Not all actors will be called for the duration of every rehearsal.

We will do our best to work around conflicts, so please disclose all known conflicts on your audition form.  The rehearsal schedule will be created with conflicts in mind, so knowing this in advance will help the production team make the best use of everyone's time.  Excessive absences may result in a role being re-cast. 

Refunds are available until the cast list is posted.  Once auditions and/or casting have been completed, there are no refunds.

We welcome parent volunteers!  If you have a particular talent or area of interest, please let us know.  

Disney’s Frozen Jr is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International. All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
