KCMT Presents “The Little Mermaid” in May 2024!

SHOW DETAILS

  • Performances: May 2-19, 2024 (no performances May 4)
  • Performing at North Kitsap Auditorium, 1881 NE Hostmark Street, Poulsbo
  • Special Performances: Our benefit performances for NK Fishline and Royal Family Kids’ Camp will be announced soon.
From classic literature to the Academy Award-winning film and Broadway musical, Ariel’s undersea journey is a beautiful love story for the ages.

Journey “Under the Sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, adapted from Disney’s Broadway production and the motion picture. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance.

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.

Schedule Specifics

Updates are sent via email at the beginning of each week. You can also check the online Rehearsal Calendar (under the “Rehearsal Calendar” tab).

Each actor can expect to spend from 3 to 10 hours in rehearsal each week. They will learn dancing and vocals for chorus numbers, as well as scene blocking and character development. Rehearsals are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:00 – 7:00 PM, and a three-hour block on Saturdays, either 10 AM – 1 PM or 3 – 6 PM, depending on your cast assignment. Specialty dancers and leads may have additional Friday and Saturday rehearsals. Actors are expected to attend all scheduled rehearsals.

Please pick your child up on time after rehearsal. Actors should only be at KCMT (rehearsals and performances) only when they are scheduled. We are not equipped to watch children who are not actively involved in rehearsals/performances.

CONFLICT CALENDAR

The Conflict Calendar plays an important role in casting a show. “Conflicts” that arise AFTER a show is cast are the same as “missing a rehearsal.” All KNOWN conflicts must be declared at registration. Absences arising after the Conflict Calendar is submitted must go through the Attendance Supervisor and could jeopardize your casting in the production. You can download a copy of the The Little Mermaid 2024 Conflict Calendar 0114. It will also be emailed to you when you complete your registration.

PRODUCTION WEEKS

Production Weeks are the last two weeks on our rehearsal schedule. Leads are required not to participate in any overnight activities during production weeks. We require that you clear your child’s schedule of all outside activities during production weeks. Extra activities during production weeks sap the energy from their performances.

If at any time an actor or actress needs to be replaced due to unforeseen circumstances, permission and arrangements for their replacement MUST be coordinated through a Director.
