Little Mermaid - change of plan

It is with regret that we announce the production of "The Little Mermaid" will not be going ahead as scheduled in June/July this year.

We understand that this is disappointing for those members who enthusiastically auditioned over the two nights, but unfortunately, in the best interests of the company and taking into account the ongoing direction of QLTG, this regrettably hard decision has had to be made.

Don't despair, the committee are meeting early next week to decide on an alternative plan for mid year & then an exciting venture for later in the year.

Please stay tuned and we will be in touch soon.

Auditions for Little Mermaid

We are excited to announce that our next show is The Little Mermaid with performances in late June / early July 2014.

Open Auditions will be held on Monday 10 March and Wednesday 12 March, at the Queenscliffe RSL, 9 King St (corner of Hesse St) in Queenscliff. Be sure to arrive by 6:55pm, ready for starting auditions at 7pm sharp. All are welcome; you can bring your own music, but it is not essential.

There are a variety of roles for a variety of performers - young and old, male and female, fast and slow - the biggest requirement is that you be positive and committed, and ready to enjoy the experience. There are also many offstage opportunities to have fun, make new friends and build your skills: wardrobe, sets and props, promotion, backstage crew, ticketing, front of house, and more.

For those selected in the show, rehearsals will be held each Monday and Wednesday night, beginning on Monday 17 March. All participants must be financial members of QLTG (annual fee $25 adults or $15 children) - this applies to both onstage and offstage roles. Memberships will be collected at the auditions above, and at first rehearsal. Performers are also required to pay a Performance Levy (amount to be determined) covering scripts and costumes.

IMPORTANT: This is NOT the Disney version of Little Mermaid. Please avoid watching that DVD for a while, to prevent disorientation.

For more information see "Contact Us" on this website, or preferably attend the auditions and ask questions there.
