About the project: Journey "under the sea" with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney's The Little Mermaid JR., adapted from Disney's Broadway production and the motion picture (featuring the enormously popular Academy Award-winning music and delightfully charming book and lyrics). Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories, Disney's The Little Mermaid JR. is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance.

Prince EricMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Prince Eric is the adventurous prince who captures Ariel's heart. Look for a charming performer with a sensitive nature. Prince Eric has a few small solos, but it is more important to cast a strong actor in this role. Vocal range top: D5 Vocal range bottom: B3

FlounderBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Flounder is Ariel's sincere and sensitive best friend who is loyal to the end. This spunky fish also has a show-stopping solo in "She's in Love."

Vocal range top: Db5 Vocal range bottom: G3

King TritonMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

KING TRITON rules the sea and is a force to be reckoned with. This non-singer needs to command the stage as a strong leader but also show the tenderness of a parent. Cast a mature performer who feels comfortable playing father to Ariel and the Mersisters.

AquataFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

AndrinaFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

AristaFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

AdellaFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

AllanaFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

UrsulaMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Ursula is the manipulative sea witch who tries to overthrow King Triton. She is cunning and devious and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Cast a mature performer who can bring out this villain's humor while finding texture in Ursula's complexity. Ursula's songs can be challenging, so look for a singer who will feel comfortable with these solos. Vocal range top: C#5 Vocal range bottom: F3

TentaclesBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The Tentacles are extensions of Ursula, perhaps the poor unfortunate souls who are now trapped in her lair. Look for six or eight performers who work well together and can move as a unit. Vocal range top: C#5 Vocal range bottom: C4

FlotsamMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Flotsam and Jetsam are Ursula's slippery spies. These electric eels are sinister and sneaky, so look for performers who can be underhanded and devious while still being heard on stage. Flotsam and Jetsam can be played by boys or girls. Vocal range top: C#5 Vocal range bottom: C4

JetsamBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

ScuttleMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Scuttle is the know-it-all seagull who serves as Ariel's expert on humans. He is funny and off-beat. While a good singer will rock "Human Stuff," this song can easily be spoken in rhythm. Look for a performer with good comedic timing who is willing to have fun with Scuttle's eccentricities. Vocal range top: E5 Vocal range bottom: B3

GullsMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The Gulls are Scuttle's flock of zany "back-up singers" who help explain human stuff to Ariel. While there are three principal gulls written in the score, feel free to add as many as you need to best serve your production. The Gulls' solos can be spoken if necessary. Vocal range top: G5 Vocal range bottom: B3

GrimsbyMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Grimsby is Prince Eric's prim and proper valet. He is rigid in personality and constantly trying to guide Prince Eric towards the throne. While Grimsby does have some singing to do, strong acting trumps singing ability for this role. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: E4

Chef LouisMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Chef Louis is the over-the-top head chef in the palace. He is always wild and frenetic. This is an excellent featured role for a comedic performer. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: A3

ChefsMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The Chefs are Chef Louis's assistants. The music in "Les Poissons" can be challenging, so good choral singers are a plus for this group. Your Chefs can also double as members of the Sea Chorus.

CarlottaFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Carlotta is the headmistress in Prince Eric's palace and Ariel's greatest human ally. This non-singing role needs to be warm and maternal to make Ariel feel welcome.

PrincessesFemale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The six Princesses try everything they can to win the heart of Prince Eric. Since none of them possesses the voice Prince Eric is searching for, cast actresses who can create an exaggerated and comedic personality through song. The six Princesses can double as the six Mersisters. Vocal range top: G5 Vocal range bottom: E4

PilotMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The Pilot is the head sailor on Prince Eric's ship. This nautical expert who entertains the sailors with wild tales of the sea presents an opportunity to highlight a developing performer. The Pilot has a few speaking lines, but his singing voice is most important. Vocal range top: C5 Vocal range bottom: Bb3

SailorsBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The Sailors are the crew of Prince Eric's ship. They are eager for adventure and ready to tackle a storm. The Sailors can be played by boys or girls and can double as Sea Chorus.

SeahorseBoth genders8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The Seahorse is the court herald for King Triton. This non-singing part is a good role for a young performer with a clear speaking voice.

Sea ChorusMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The Sea Chorus is responsible for creating each world within the show. Look for performers who can move gracefully and are capable of being part of a scene without drawing focus. This can also be an opportunity to showcase some of your more skilled dancers. The Sea Chorus can double as Merfolk, Sea Creatures and Lagoon Animals.

Sea CreaturesMale8-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The Sea Creatures are the ensemble under water animals in King Triton's court. They can include as few or as many performers as your production permits. There are several moments to showcase both dancers and singers in "Under the Sea."
