Children needed to perform in the spring musical

ACTS published an ad on Instagram to help in its search for children to perform in the spring production of “The Little Mermaid.”

Archbishop Carroll Theatre Society is looking for children to star in the spring production of “The Little Mermaid.”

Children that are in third-grade to eighth-grade are invited to join the kid’s chorus, where they will be in three scenes during Act 1 of ‘The Little Mermaid.” There is a $30 fee to join the kids chorus. The fee is $25 if two or more children from the same family join. The form to sign up is

The required practices are March 23, March 30 and April 6 from 2-3:30 p.m. and April 14 and 15 from 6-8 p.m. Children in the kid’s chorus must also attend one costume fitting on Feb. 25 or March 3 from 2-3:30 p.m. ACTS provides the costumes. Actors are required to bring black shoes that are easy to dance in.

“Each child in the kid’s chorus will have the opportunity to be a sea creature on stage,” said senior Sofia Cunicelli. “The costume crew will start making the costumes after the fittings and by then the choreography will be ready as well. It is a very smooth and easy process.”

The show is open on April 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27 starting at 7 p.m. and April 21 starting at 10
a.m. Attendance is mandatory for the kid’s chorus. The matinee April 25 at 10 a.m., which is a show during the school day that is presented to various grade schools in the area. Attendance is optional for the kid’s chorus.

“I remember working with the kid’s chorus during last year’s production of “The Wizard of Oz” and it was great,” said senior Kirstin Blake McGarvey. “The kid’s chorus brings more diversity and brightness to the stage.”

Junior Sofia Palumbi agreed.

“When the kids are lined up backstage they are always super excited and ready to be on stage,”
said Palumbi. “It not only brings a positive light to the actors, but to ACTS as a whole.”
