Ariel, the heroine of our story, is a little mermaid who longs to be human. Ariel has some beautiful solos but must be able to convey meaning through gesture once she loses her voice.

Vocal Audition

"Part of Your World"

Backing Track


Sebastian is the meticulous and anxious crab who tries to keep Ariel safe while getting to lead some of the most memorable songs in the show! Sebastian can be played by a boy or girl.

Vocal Audition

"Under the Sea"

Backing Track

King Triton

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. 


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, this is a strong acting role.

Vocal Audition

"The Contest"

Backing Track

Prince Eric

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,

Vocal Audition

"One Step Closer"

Backing Track


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." Flounder can be cast with a girl or a boy with an unchanged voice.

Vocal Audition

"She's in Love"

Backing Track

Flotsam & Jetsam

Flotsam and Jetsam are Ursula's slippery spies. These electric eels are sinister and sneaky. Flotsam and Jetsam can be played by boys or girls.

Vocal Audition

"Poor Unfortunate Souls"

Backing Track

Chef Louis

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. Can be played by a boy or girl.

Vocal Audition

"Les Poissons"

Backing Track


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. We are looking for a mature performer who can bring out this villain's humor while finding texture in Ursula's complexity. 

Vocal Audition

"Poor Unfortunate Souls"

Backing Track


The Mersisters (Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Atina, Adella, Allana) are Ariel's siblings and full of personality and sass. These are great roles to showcase talented singers and dancers who can create and play six distinctive characters.

Vocal Audition

"She's in Love"

Backing Track


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.

Vocal Audition

"She's in Love"

Backing Track


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.
