Journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr., adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and 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.

Work with the same professional production team currently working on Phoenix’s Mainstage production of The Little Mermaid! Phoenix Production’s Rising Star Academy will mount a modestly full-scale production of The Little Mermaid Jr. in one incredibly fun and intensive week of rehearsals!

Three tickets per student will be included in the $340 tuition fee.

Placement auditions are required to participate in this fully costumed workshop production and are open to performers in grades 1 – 12. No prior experience is needed to audition. The Rising Star’s cast is made up of principal and ensemble roles. Actors cast in a principal role will have speaking lines and/or solos.
