The Little Mermaid Jr.

Spring 2024 5th – 8th grade musical.
Auditions on Feb. 3rd & 4th 2024. Everyone gets a part!

We’re excited to present The Little Mermaid Jr. as our Spring 2024 musical! Everyone from grades 5th – 8th is welcome to participate, no matter what type of previous experience you have. We have kids who have been performing for years as well as those who have never been on stage before.

The cost for our performing arts musical class is for $90. This cost goes towards a cast shirt, scripts, props, costumes, and more.

We’re excited to have our Jr. Jammers performing arts class (2nd – 4th grade) present their own play this season: A Christmas Carol for Kids. Learn more about the Jr. Jammers class and sign up here.

Parent Information

As an all-volunteer program, we need your help as a parent to make sure things run smoothly for the kids! We’re in need of parent volunteers through the season, whether it’s bringing in snacks, watching kids during practices, selling concessions on show nights, setup/breakdown, or more. We’ll be having a cast and parent meeting after our first Sunday practice, Feb. 11 where we’ll outline how we can use your help. We’ll also be talking about how we’ll keep in touch over the course of the season and other important information.

Auditions and rehearsals will be held at:
