the cast list for CCT's production of Disney's The Little Mermaid
has been posted - PLEASE read below before viewing the list

Please find the Cast List below. If you auditioned for the production it is VERY important that you read through the Cast List Email entirely prior to searching for your name on the list. Be sure to look through each ensemble group as some actors may have been cast in multiple groups. If you were cast in Vocal Ensemble, you should also find your name in at least one other group. This group will indicate the on-stage song you will participate in.

 

If your name is NOT listed below, PLEASE audition again in the future! While we wish we could have cast every actor who auditioned, it just wasn't possible for this production. Like we mentioned in the email; Casting a production is like assembling a puzzle. The pieces have to match the picture of the puzzle and they also have to fit together with one another. If your puzzle piece didn't fit into our Little Meramid puzzle, that doesn't mean it won't fit into the puzzle for a future CCT production. Each production has different needs and comes together differently, and we'd love to work with you in future shows!

next steps for actors

We can't wait to begin working on the show with you! The next step for each actor who has been cast will be to read through the Cast List email (if you haven't yet). attend the Script Pick-Up, which will be held on Wed. May 25 from 6:30pm - 9:00pm. During this time, actors will receive their rehearsal materials, some actors will be measured for their costume, and new actors/parents will be asked to attend a short information session where they can learn about what to expect during the rehearsal process and ask any questions they may have. An email will be sent on Monday with additional details.

 

If you cannot attend the Script Pick-Up you MUST email info@castleco.org to let us know - or we will assume you no longer wish to participate in the production. 

 

In the meantime, please keep your schedules open as your participation in the show depends on you being able to attend all of your assigned rehearsals. If you have questions please email info@castleco.org and we will do our best to get back to you. 

 

Please note that email responses may be delayed as we are preparing for our Set the Stage fundraising event this Sunday, May 22! This event helps raise funds to support The Wizard of Oz production this summer. For information about the event, please click the link below. The event is open to all community members (regardless if they are participating in the show or now).

actor FAQs

When is the Participation Fee due? 

The participation fee will be due at the end of June and extensions may be granted for those who need them. 

 

How do I apply for Participation Fee assistance?

Fee Assistance is offered through Lakeville Community Education as well as CCT. Information on Fee Assistance will be provided with your rehearsal materials. 

 

How do I purchase tickets to see the show?

Tickets will be available to purchase online sometime in the beginning of June. We will send an email to let you know when tickets are available to purchase.

 

My name is listed under Vocal Ensemble. What does that mean?

The Wizard of Oz is a unique production because there are several songs in the show that are sung by off-stage performers. There are also many songs in the show that are extremely difficult - with lots of vocal parts. Members of the Vocal Ensemble will be singing in several songs throughout the production. Specific songs will be assigned by Natalie (the Music Director) and may be given to you at Script Pick-Up or the first rehearsal. Some of the singing will be done off-stage and some will be done on-stage. We know it's a little vague, but we promise it will be a fun role, and a BIG part of making the production sound amazing!

 

Why isn't anyone cast as a Jitterbug? 

The Jitterbug Dance will require several experienced dancers. Sometime during the first few weeks of rehearsal, CCT will hold dance auditions for those who are interested in being featured dancers in the Jitterbug song (or other dance numbers in the show). Guidelines on who can audition will be shared after rehearsals begin. 

 

Will the Flying Monkeys actually fly?

Unfortunately, no. The Lakeville school district does not allow flying people in its performance spaces. We DO have some fun ideas in mind for the actors playing flying monkeys, and we hope to work the actors into additional scenes / scene changes that they aren't normally a part of. Some actors playing flying monkeys will also get the opportunity to participate in stage combat. 

 

What is a Winkie?

The Winkies are the guards for the Wicked Witch of the West. They provide a cool-factor to the Wicked Witch scenes and also some comedy to the production. Some actors playing Winkies will participate in short sections of stage combat.

 

What if I don't like my role?

We understand that actors may not like the role they have been cast in, unfortunatley no one is permitted to change their role in the production (unless a scheduling error was made by the casting team). While we do encourage everyone to step outside their comfort zone and give their role a try, if you are certain you do NOT want to accept your role, that is ok. Simply email info@castleco.org with your actor's name and let us know they no longer wish to be in the production. 

 

What if I want to be considered for MORE roles in the play? 

Sometimes CCT may add actors to additional ensemble groups. This happens if an actor chooses to drop and we need additional actors in the group OR if we simply decide we want a larger ensemble than we originally expected we'd need. You do NOT need to inform CCT staff if you want to be considered for more roles. CCT staff selects actors for additional roles based on the commitment they show to past and current roles/productions.

production FAQs

  • Who can audition for the show?
    Usually, CCT auditions are open to anyone age 5 through Adult. During CCT's 2023-2024 season, some changes do apply, due to licensing restrictions for certain shows (see below). Fall Show - King Arthur and Princess Arthena (ages 5 - Adult may audition) Spring Show - TBA (ages 5 - Adult may audition) Summer Show - Disney's Frozen JR (ages 5 - 18 may audition) While some production roles may require different ages, heights, and vocal ranges, CCT does not discriminate in casting based on race, gender, sexual orientation, ability to pay participation fee, accessibility needs, etc.
  • Is there a fee to participate?
    There are a lot of costs that go into making a great theater production, script licensing, space rental, costumes, sets, technical elements, printing, marketing, and instructor stipends (to name a few). Because of this, CCT charges a participation fee for all actors age 17 and under. (Adult actors are encouraged to volunteer in other ways by assisting with marketing, set move-in, prop construction, etc.) Fees vary by show because the cost to produce the show, and the number of tickets each show is expected to sell, also varies. Fees for most shows are $175 per actor (age 17 and under). Families with multiple actors in the production will pay $175 per actor (for the first two actors in their family) and will pay $75 per actor (for each additional actor). ALL actors must also provide their own shoes and possibly socks to wear for the production. The style of shoe and sock will be based on the character that each actor plays. Financial assistance is available for those who need it (for both participation fees and shoes/socks) and can be registered for after the production has been cast. (CCT does NOT turn actors away due to inability to pay the fee.)
  • What is the time commitment / when are rehearsals?
    The information below pertains to all CCT productions. The time commitment to participate in a show depends on the role that each actor is cast in. Some actors may rehearse between one and six hours each week while others may rehearse 20 hours per week. At auditions, actors will be able to select if they'd like a role that requires less rehearsal and performance time. These roles are called part-time roles. Part-time roles rehearse an average of 1 or 2 hours each week and perform in half the performances. Rehearsals are held Monday-Friday evenings from 6pm - 9:00pm and occasionally Saturday mornings/afternoons. Actors will be asked to fill out a conflict form at auditions. CCT does its best to work around actors' conflicts when possible and will prioritize having younger actors rehearse earlier in the evenings. Playing a sport once or twice each week may be something that can be scheduled around. CCT can occasionally schedule around vacation conflicts, however, priority will be given to those who can attend the majority of rehearsals. It is extremely important that you fill out your conflict form honestly!
  • How do I prepare for auditions?
    Actors MUST register in order to audition for all CCT productions. The registration link can be found towards the middle of this page. Registration is free and secures your audition spot. On the day of your audition, please bring a list of conflicts that can be used to fill out the conflict calendar (if not filled out in advance). You may also wish to bring a pen/pencil and a notebook (or other hard surface) for filling out your audition form. (If possible, we will send an email a week prior to auditions which will allow you to fill out forms in advance and print them yourself to bring with you.) Your audition for a non-musical will consist of an acting audition ONLY. Your audition for a musical will consist of two parts, an acting audition and a singing audition. During the acting audition, actors will be asked to portray different animals, characters or emotions while counting from one to ten. Example: Please count from 1 to 10. At one, pretend you are sad, at 10, pretend you are happy. For the singing audition (used for Musicals ONLY), actors will be asked to sing a short section of a song (around 20-30 seconds is enough). Actors may choose any song they like, but it should be something that you feel confident singing! Your song does NOT have to be from the show you are auditioning for.
  • What are the Covid-19 guidelines for participating in the production?
    There are no Covid-19 guidelines for CCT productions at this time. CCT usually follows school and state guidelines for Covid-19 prevention. Stricter guidelines may be in place for rehearsals during high transmission times. CCT does not require actors to wear masks for performances unless actors have had a recent Covid-19 infection and are still contagious.
