Auditions for Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR
 
Journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends in The Little Mermaid, Jr., adapted from Disney’s Broadway production and the beloved motion picture. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind to live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she’s the girl whose enchanting voice he’s been seeking.
