FYI This site is primarily for community theatre, but I do report auditions for semi pro companies. Many of these companies I do not know, so be careful.

Once On This Island tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl in Haiti. Loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, Ti Moune falls in love with a young man after she saves his life, only to realize that he belongs to a different class and their love faces insurmountable odds.

We are looking for a cast of 10 – 15 performers to play a variety of roles. Actors of all ethnicities, gender-identities, ages and abilities are encouraged to submit. Ages suggested are just that – suggestions – and we are very open to cross-gender casting.

Please let us know if you have the ability to play any musical instruments (percussion especially) or have any special skills.

Dance skills are an asset but not a requirement – you just need to be comfortable on stage.

Union and non-union are encouraged to submit. Equity performers will be cast under the Artists’ Collective Policy.
All performers will receive an honorarium.

Please prepare 2 contrasting musical theatre songs (you may only be asked to sing one) and bring your own sheet music, an accompanist will be provided. There will also be a dance portion so please dress comfortably.
