Acting Out is thrilled to be offering our annual summer Center Stage program! This is a fast-paced two-week program culminating in an incredible LIVE performance. The entire session and final performances will be at our Acting Out! space.

 

The first day is devoted to auditioning prep in the morning and auditioning in the afternoon. Students are asked to provide 1-2 minutes of a song they can sing for auditions. Throughout the first week, actors will be immersed in various theatre activities including( but not limited to) set and costume design, physical comedy, acting, character development, Shakespeare, improv, musical theater dance, and more! Each day we will explore something new!

Every afternoon will be focused on our musical. We will explore choreography, vocal technique, and acting to create our final production. Regardless of being the "lead" or in the ensemble, each student will be pushed to learn new skills and work towards our final performance. 

 

Our theater intensive is for all skill levels and will give every cast member a chance to shine! We focus on self-confidence, self-expression, commitment, and of course, FUN!  

Scholarship Opportunities and payment plans are an option if needed. Please email actingoutregistrar@gmail with questions

Ariel: the heroine of our story, is a little mermaid who longs to be human.

Prince Eric: is the adventurous prince who captures Ariel's heart.

Sebastian: the meticulous and anxious crab who tries to keep Ariel safe

Flounder: Ariel's sincere and sensitive best friend who is loyal to the end.

KING TRITON: rules the sea and is a force to be reckoned with.

The Mersisters (Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Atina, Adella, Allana) are Ariel's siblings and full of personality and sass.

Ursula: 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.

Flotsam and Jetsam: Ursula's slippery spies. These electric eels are sinister and sneaky

Scuttle: the know-it-all seagull who serves as Ariel's expert on humans. He is funny and off-beat.

The Gulls: Scuttle's flock of zany "back-up singers" who help explain human stuff to Ariel. 

Grimsby: Prince Eric's prim and proper valet. He is rigid in personality and constantly trying to guide Prince Eric towards the throne.

Chef Louis: the over-the-top head chef in the palace. 

Carlotta: is the headmistress in Prince Eric's palace and Ariel's greatest human ally.

Princesses

The six Princesses try everything they can to win the heart of Prince Eric.

The Pilot: the head sailor on Prince Eric's ship.

The Sailors: the crew of Prince Eric's ship. They are eager for adventure and ready to tackle a storm.

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

Sea Chorus, Sea Creatures, Merfolk, and lagoon animals
