CTWS Spring Shows Cast/Crew

Note from Little Mermaid Director: 
Dear Parents of a Child who Auditioned for CTWS’ Little Mermaid, Jr.,First, I want to thank you for your support of your child’s interest in theatre education. Without you, none of what we do would be possible.

Second, I want to let you know that I understand that, for some, their hopes may not have been met when they see the list. I am sharing a few thoughts that went into our casting decisions with the hope that they may be helpful as you discuss your child’s role in the production.

First and foremost - we so admire each student for putting themselves out there and having the courage to go through the audition process. It was not easy. I hope that they feel very proud of themselves and regardless of the outcome for this show, feel encouraged to continue pursuing their interest in theater!

As a performer myself (since the 3rd grade), I still find auditioning very intimidating and sometimes discouraging. Sitting now, on the other side of auditions, I better understand that the process is not one of accessing the actor’s talent or potential but rather determining where the actors’ gifts best fit in this particular cast and crew puzzle.

Finally, while Little Mermaid, Jr. is a children’s show, it is not an easy show to perform. The short scenes, musical numbers and the use of changing ensembles make it a demanding one for ALL of the actors and the crew. Because so much happens in a short amount of time, the back stage crew and the ensemble players are as essential to the success of the show as the very small percentage with “lead” roles. This show - more than some - really demonstrates the truth of the adage that there are no small roles! Thank you , again, for your support and I look forward to working on this fun show with you and your fabulous children! Karen Holbert
