Readings are taking place on Wednesday, November 29 and the workshops will be on Monday and Wednesday, December 4 and 6. These will all be taking place at The KLODS Hut at 6-8 St Georges Courtyard in Lynn along with the auditions.

You can find the link for the full audition pack on KLODS Facebook page.

The cast needs to be 18+ and the age ranges in the audition pack of the characters are for guidance only.

This fishy fable will capture your heart with irresistible songs including the Disney classics Under the Sea, Kiss the Girl, and Part of Your World.

Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, is a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure.

She longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea, and whilst visiting the surface, falls in love with the dashing Prince Eric.

She bargains with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. The bargain is not what it seems, and she needs the help of her colourful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.

KLODS director, Hayley Dennis said: “We are looking for a highly talented cast who need to be 18+ to play the well-known roles in bringing the show to life.

“With a fully animated backdrop timed with the Disney-supplied orchestral music, the stunning show is guaranteed to be a wow factor for local theatre and for audiences of all ages.

The show is sponsored by Your Local Paper and Radio West Norfolk.

Hayley added: “We want to bring fantasy and romance to Lynn and there is no better way to do it other than a Disney version of one of the most famous love stories of all time.”
