Children and adults are invited to audition on Oct. 28-29, 2017 for Magical Starlight Theatre's January 2018 production of "The Little Mermaid."

Auditions will be held at the Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center, located at 305 W. Jackson Ave. in downtown Naperville. Children must be in fourth grade or above to audition.

Youth and adult actors are asked to prepare an up-tempo song highlighting their vocal range and to bring sheet music for the accompanist. There also will be a dance audition, a general movement audition and a cold reading from the script. Check for details about the characters, vocal range needed and frequently asked questions about the auditions.

All performances are mandatory. Ten performances will be presented: January 12-14 and January 19-21, 2018. Performances are at Naperville Central High School Auditorium, 440 West Aurora Avenue. Rehearsals will generally be scheduled for Sunday afternoons, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
