Courtenay Little Theatre’s Christmas production will be Disney’s The Little Mermaid, directed by Brian Mather with musical direction by Denise Marquette and choreography by Ashley Schmidt.

Auditions will be held on the weekends of June 7 & 8 with call backs on June 15 in the CLT Space located at Unit A-B 2683 Moray Ave.

It is a large cast that requires a mix of teens and adults. This is a high energy show with lots of song and dance and hijinks along with the very poignant story.

We are looking for a core group of dancers (6 or so) who will handle most of the choreography
