What You Need To Know
Registration for THE LITTLE MERMAID will be held from 5:00-6:00 pm on Monday, August 27, 2018 in the Newport High School Theatre (aka the Drama Room, off the cafeteria). Anyone 8 years old through adult may register. Parents of 8 year-olds must be heavily committed to be in the Studio Theater when we move into the PAC, or be in the show.
Rehearsals are scheduled from 10am-1pm on Saturdays. We will have ensemble rehearsals every Saturday until two weeks before opening, when they will be held every weeknight from 5-9pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center. These daily rehearsals (for two weeks in December/January) are mandatory.
If you audition and receive a principal role, you will also have Tuesday and Thursday evening rehearsals, from 6-9pm starting in September. Please understand that you must commit to school shows in order to be considered for a principal role.
Don’t forget your home, school and sports calendars through January so you can fill out your conflict calendar (you can also print & fill this out before you come). Please know that by registering you are committing to this show through January, so be prepared to schedule around rehearsals and performances!
Fridays & Saturdays, January 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26
School Shows: January 10, 15, 22
Registration fees are $75 for kids and $35 for adults. You will also need a few personal costume items and footwear.
Let us know if you want to participate and cannot make registration. We will work to make other arrangements with you, if possible!
Please download, fill out and return required forms at registration.
One last note about registration!
If you can't make the registration time, don't wait until the day after registration to contact us!
Our policy that "everyone who registers" is cast in the show still holds true, BUT we've had so many register in the past, that we have had to limit cast size due to space at the PAC. If our numbers get too high, we will create a wait list! People sometimes drop out after registration. This is a RARE, but possible situation.
