Auditions for Disney’s The Little Mermaid

Center Stage at Southampton Cultural Center to Hold Open Auditions for Disney’s The Little Mermaid

Center Stage at Southampton Cultural Center will hold open auditions for staged concert performances of Disney’s The Little Mermaid on Sunday, August 11th at 12:00pm, and Monday, August 12th at 6:00 PM, in the Southampton Cultural Center’s Levitas Center for the Arts.
Auditions will begin promptly at these times. Late arrivals will be seen at the discretion of the director. Vocal and dance audition required. Readings from the script will also occur.
Bethany Dellapolla directs.
Performances begin on October 11, 2019 and run through October 27, 2019.
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages…Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with irresistible songs like “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl,” and “Part of Your World.”
ALL ROLES ARE OPEN.

The Red Badge of Courage
October 19 – November 4

Fridays & Saturdays at 7PM
Sundays at 2:30

boots on the ground theater has added an encore performance of The Red Badge of Courage that will be free for Veterans and their families. The additional performance will be on Sunday, November 4th, at 6:00 PM, at the Southampton Cultural Center. Veterans need to email Kirsten Lonnie at the SCC to reserve their free seats in advance.
Stephen Crane’s monumental Civil War classic, The Red Badge of Courage, has been described as a “parable of the inner battle every man must fight.” It centers on Henry Fleming, a young Union soldier who battles his inner demons as he runs from and eventually faces his greatest fears. Published in 1895, TRBOC is considered the first great war novel and has never gone out of print.
The cast includes Christopher Levi–an Iraq War Veteran and Wounded Warrior. Consulting on the show is another Veteran, Captain Joseph Bilardello, who served in Vietnam and is the Commander of the 67th NY Civil War Reenactors.
Historical accuracy is a high priority for producer Bonnie Grice. Great attention has been given to collecting costumes and props that are true to the period. To enhance the historical experience, an exhibition of Civil War memorabilia will be on display in the Cultural Center’s gallery. This rare collection will be curated by Stephen Gould in collaboration with the Southampton History Museum.
Tickets and showtimes for The Red Badge of Courage can be found at scc-arts.org. For more information, visit bootsonthegroundtheater.com.

When Greg makes a seemingly harmless comment about his girlfriend Steph’s “regular” looking face, the information gets back to Steph and sends their relationship over the deep end. Greg’s life spirals out of control when Steph leaves him, and he has to come to terms with what he has said. Greg’s best friend Kent is married to Steph’s best friend Carly, and when things start collapsing in Steph and Greg’s life, Carly and Kent are pulled in for the ride. We see Greg, Steph, Carly and Kent deal with the pressures of what it means to be ‘pretty’, and observe how the four friends manage the infidelity, betrayal and deceit that creeps into their lives.

Characters:

Greg – Male, late 20’s to 30’s: works as an overnight stocker in a big-box warehouse, lives with Steph; ordinary, decent, sweet with sense of humor, bookworm, not career driven, has a good sense of justice

Steph – This role has been cast

Kent – Male, late 20’s to 30’s: athletic, attractive, macho and childish with a locker room mentality, a hothead and jealous with a roving eye, works with Greg in the warehouse stockroom, married to Carly, can be a good friend if things don’t get too complicated

Carly – Female, late 20’s to 30’s : pretty, works as a security guard in the warehouse, a job she landed because she was pretty but has no aptitude for it, afraid that her life will always be defined by the way she looks, married to Kent and the stakes go up when she finds out she’s pregnant, sincere, honest and tries to be a good friend

Performances will begin on January 11, 2019 and run through January 27, 2019.
Most rehearsals are scheduled Mondays through Thursdays in the evening with weekend rehearsals just prior to show opening. For further information, contact Joan Lyons at jlyons@ackermanpartners.com
