If I could bring her character to life and inspire people the way the original film inspires me it would be a dream come true.

  5. Mary

    Hello, I am Maria! I am an aspiring composer, writer – I write short stories and now working on my first book. I’ve been a pianist since I was 3, now I’m 17 years old. I am a huge fan of Disney and the stories of Disney princesses, Ariel is my favorite as well. I speak Russian, Ukrainian, English (both British and American) and Hebrew. I would really love to become a part of the Disney family as I dream about working at Walt Disney Studios in the future. I’m an aspiring artist too, I’ve been painting since I was a little kid. Disney stories mean so much for me and they are very close to my heart. It would be a dream come true and an honor to be a part of a Disney movie. I took acting and vocal classes as well. It is a truly wonderful opportunity! Now, I have blue eyes and blonde hair and I’m an athlete. Ariel is a part of who I am and she will always be. She is my role model. Thank you for the opportunity!

    Hi, my name is Maile and I’ve always loved the little mermaid and it is one of my favorite movies. I enjoy singing and acting. I am 15 years old, about 5’4 with blonde hair and greenish blue eyes. I would love to audition for Ariel and help bring this movie to life

  7. Bethany Muir

    Hi, my name is Bethany! I am 12 years old! I have straight red hair, blue eyes, and I am (about) 5 foot 3 inches. I have always wanted to act (but have never been a girly girl). I have my own finfun mermaid tail and I am really good at swimming in it. My favorite princess has always been Ariel (because we both have red hair) and my sister and I have played like we were mermaids since we were tiny. I have done a few church musicals with a few speaking parts, dancing parts, and just extras. I am willing to sing with autotune but I would probably not be good enough without it. I am a pretty good dancer (when I have planned choreography). I have done a few slots with my friends for AHG. When I was 8 or 9 we started to make our own version of the Little Mermaid called Ariel’s Story! This would be an amazing experience for me! Please consider it! But I haven’t told my parents so I will have to ask them if you choose me for any part.😀

  9. Megan Bethel

    Hi! My name is Megan Bethel. I am currently a High School student in Canada and I would absolutely love to be a part of this production. Acting is my passion, I love digging deep into my roles and truly becoming one with the character. I have been a part of many productions such as Twelfth Night, playing Olivia, Madeline in Bawdy Body, Mrs. Perkins in The Admirable Crichton etc. I have also worked backstage and onstage for my school shows. I have been accepted into multiple schools in my area for Dramatic Arts and have experience with auditions. The Little Mermaid is truly one of my favourite movies. Growing up I was a competitive swimmer and I felt like I could relate to Ariel in many ways, my love for adventure, born with red hair, desire to see the world. My parents would take me to Disney World every other year and Ariel was the one I was most excited to see. I own multiple copies of the books, dolls and even Hot Chocolate Powder with her face on it that I bought at Disney. I am happy that on the description it says “roles of all sizes” as I have struggled with my weight in the past (Hypothyroidism) and it really shows how we as a world are progressing. I am confident that I am the right fit for this role and it would be a dream coming true.

    As a child what I loved most about Ariel, was that me and her had the same hair color. Through that i felt we had a connection. As I grew up, my love for the story only grew, but for a different reason. I love how adventurous Ariel is, she did what she thought was right ignoring the rules, and she accepted that she loved someone from a different world and figured out a way to be with them.
    But we can forget the other wonderful charcters that make this story what it is: Sebastian, Flounder, Triton, Scuttle, and Eric. Sebastian is an onion, he has many different layers, and each one helps to make the story funnier and relateable. Flounder is your tipical best friend, a scaredy cat but will help you in your time of need. Scuttle is another amazing character he teaches Ariel the ways of humans, rather they are right or wrong that’s besides the point. Triton, the loveable but strict father, as every father should be. He would sacrifice anything for his little girl. Finally, Eric, he is open minded to Ariel being a mermaid, loves her, and does what he can to be with her.
    I want to take on the challenge of representing Ariel, an amazing character, that will leave an emprint on little girls and boys everywhere. Showing them to be adventurous, and that it’s okay to seperatly from the crowd and do what they think is right. I have been many lead roles in my high school plays and have sang back stage for one in middle school. I have been to colleges and been scored on my voice and have only got the highest scores. I love acting and singing. After this year when I graduate from highschool, I want to get a major in Drama and Theater. Bring casted for this story that has emprinted on many people would not only be a fun experience, but a learning experience of what I can do and how I can do better. Rather I do or don’t get casted for the movie I can’t wait to see it.

    I have been a sports nut since I was three, in the last 10 years I’ve been dedicated to swimming and have won awards and set high school records and will be continuing the sport in college. I attend the gym everyday and maintain a a healthy diet without being too crazy about it. I’m very outgoing and well rounded. I have many friends and family members I would do anything for. Being in a big Italian family means lots of loyalty and support influence. I have adored acing since I was 2, being Mary in a school production of the Christmas Story. Since then I have been Alice- Alice in Wonderland (local theatre) Sandy- Grease (local) Nala- The Lion King (local) Ariel- The Little Mermaid (local) Miss Pratt- Ladies of the Jury (high school) Dr. Pinch- Comey of Errors (high school) and Jennifer Truex (high school). In high school I participated in ASB, captain of the cheer team by junior and senior year, choir, drama, and captain of the swim team my sophomore to senior years, all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA, making sure all was well at home, helping my mom, having two jobs, and keeping high spirits for myself and my school. I am a very dedicated, loyal person. I am a fast learner and always willing to try new and exciting and spontaneous things. I portrayed Ariel in a local theatre production of the little mermaid. I have a fiery passion for singing and acting.
    As far as dreams go, Ariel taught me that dreaming big is nothing to be ashamed of and to see the good in everything no matter how bad it appears, to give everyone a chance no matter how different they seem, and to never give up on those you care most about. If I could take all this to the big screen and relive such a classic and inspire children today the way the timeless classic inspired and continues to inspire me I would be eternally grateful.

    I grew up watching The Little Mermaid. It was the first VHS that I ever was given. My mom would ask me to sing the songs from a very young age for talent shows. She passed away when I was 12 and my dad was very protective while raising me afterwrds so I can completely relate to the story as well.it resonates with me each time I watch it. Im an outgoing dreamer just like Ariel. I’ve been acting, singing and dancing from a young age. Am I able to send an audition via video as I can’t be there in person? Thank you.

    The Little Mermaid has always been my favorite movie.Headstrong and absolutely fearless, she’s a champion for anyone who’s ever felt like they don’t fit in. She’s beautiful and caring fish/person. Even if you feel like you don’t belong under the sea, there’s a place for you on land if you are brave enough to trade your fins for legs anyways ahha. The love story teaches you to take the risk, go for it!

    Hello, my name is Madeline! I am currently 18 years of age and theatre is my absolute passion. Not only have I become very fond of acting, I have also developed a strong love for singing. I have been involved in several drama extracurricular activities, as well as been apart of many plays within my area. Outside of theatre, I also enjoy sports! I am very involved in my health, as I work out constantly. I am also quite the environmentalist, and am very involved in world affairs. I try to volunteer and stay involved in my community as much as I am able! I love to help others, as it brings me much joy! The Little Mermaid is my favorite movie and I cannot stress this enough! I have several posters within my room, as well as paintings. I also have figurines, barbies, and coloring books. My Aunt actually works at the Storyteller’s Cafe in the Disneyland Theme Park, so I have visited the park quite frequently. My love for Ariel began when I was three years old, and I met her at Disneyland. I got to sit in her lap, and I was completely in awe. There are photos of this moment, and I was in absolute amazement! This would be a dream come true for myself, as this is easily two of my greatest passions put into one! I know all the songs by heart, and would be blessed to be given the opportunity to perform them for you! I thankyou for this opportunity and for your consideration!

    I love the magic and the variety of this story. From Under the Sea to Le Poisson, the songs are so fun and of such variety, to be apart of this production, nevertheless the movie, would be incredible! I’m one of a million girls who love and would love to portray Ariel, but to me she will always be part of who I am. She’s what really made me fall in love with films, Disney, swimming, and singing. I’m surrounded by musicians in my life, but she’s the character who really made music mean something to me.

    The original Hans Christian Andersen story of The Little Mermaid has always been one of the most beautiful and tragic stories I’ve read, and it’s always been one of my favorites. Even Disney’s recreation of the story inspires me in the same way as the original tale, and easily became my favorite Disney movie. Everyone always says that Ariel, or the Mermaid, gave up her life simply for a boy, which couldn’t be further from the truth. Ariel/the Mermaid had always been curious about land and the people there long before she ever met the prince. To see a creature so magical be so entranced by something we consider so ordinary always gave me this kind of encouragement to see the beauty in everything around us. Not only this, but it taught to me go after what you want, even if others disagree. The Mermaid wanted a chance with the prince and sacrificed her voice, her family, and in the Hans Christian Andersen tale, she also gave up her fin to feel as if she were walking on knives just to pursue something she loved. I’d like to be a part of the casting call because this story has stuck with me my whole life. Even as a little girl I dreamed of being a mermaid or of being Ariel in a musical or anything portraying her one day. I pursued acting and singing classes just to show how real that dream was. My closest opportunity was when I performed Part of Your World as a solo choir performance, and just being on stage and singing one of my favorite songs was so surreal. Hearing from little girls that they wanted to be a mermaid just like me and grown women telling me that it took them right back to their childhood and they just wanted to sing along made the whole evening for me. To be able to experience bringing young girls and older women that kind of joy in a beloved character would be best feeling I could ever have. This is truly the role of my dreams, and I’m so thankful for this opportunity.

  45. Gabby wells

    Hi, I’m Gabriella!
    I’m a singer/songwriter, actress, and dancer who just loves being apart of any stage. Probably because I’ve been up on it my whole life. At the age of 3 I started taking dancing and singing lessons, at the age of 4 I started acting, and I’ve been modeling for 2 years now. Over the years I’ve been in 6 singing competitions and made it to the semifinals every time. I’ve released an original holiday song of mine called “Holly” on iTunes and have gotten many gigs. For 5 years I’ve been a part of a dance team that travels around California competing until Nationals, where one dance is picked out of thousands. My dance teacher, Monie Adamson has won a primetime Emmy award, was on MADtv and is known as an actress in the hit movie “La La Land.” I’ve been in many plays and musicals but to name a few, Once on this Island, Seussical, Guys and Dolls, and The Little mermaid. I have been in several movies as an extra but I hope to soon have the honor of a bigger role. I would love to be a part of “The Little Mermaid” because the infamous song “Part of your World” has always been a go to song of mine and in a summer on broadway I played “Sebastian” in “The Little Mermaid” that was my favorite role I’ve ever had, therefore I hope I could do it for the second time. Not only that but Ariel was my favorite princess. If I became part of this production it would take me far back to old times. My sister and I would always watch the movie together every chance we got…we were obsessed. We would play around the house pretending we were in the movie all the time, I remember like it was yesterday. Whats funny is that I love the ocean, I surf and I was training to become a life guard but I have very little time so I was unable to do the hours it required. Lastly and most importantly because it would be an honor to bring Ariel’s story to life and to be part of a production that will share such a touching story with families everywhere.

    I’m Abbey 19 from Scotland. I have always been apart of musical theatre most of my life. 3 years ago that stopped as my parents couldn’t afforded the intense acting school fees. I now perform only to my family and friends, but I know I have something special. Ariels voice is me. All you have to do is listen and you have found yourself the best mermaid of all time.

  47. Madeline Athearn

    Adding to my past comment because I didn’t list my talents. Lol. I can sing, dance, play many instruments, very athletic, and of course act. I hope this doesn’t come off as bragging, I’m just trying to promote myself and what I’m about. Thank you.

  48. Madeline Athearn

    I have watched Disney my whole life and though people ,I might underestimate me because I’m only 14, I know I can act. I won’t be Ariel of course because I’m too young, but I will gladly take any part I can get. This is my passion and goal in life. I would greatly appreciate if someone noticed this one in a million comment.

  49. Elise

    My name is Elise and I am 19 years old.
    I have loved The Little Mermaid as long as I can remember, and I love swimming and anything related to mermaids. I remember meeting Ariel at Disney World when I was about 5 years old, and I remember being nearly speechless with excitment at getting to meet my heroine. I remember being a little girl and pretending I was Ariel when I took baths, and coercing my grandma into pretending to be Eric.

    I love Ariel because she is brave, independent, and has an open heart. She loves to learn about people who are different from her, and she wants to expand her world view. I think that’s an important message in this day and age. Ariel’s kind heart and sense of adventure make her a wonderful Disney Princess, and I would love a chance to audition for her role.

    I’ve been performing since I was in elementary school. I’m 5’2″ and my hair is dyed bright red at the moment but naturally I am blonde. I’m 111 lbs. I take acting very seriously and I’m willing to work hard. I am good at listening to directions and I love getting into the heads of the characters I play pychologically.

  51. Lynn

    Hi. I’m Lynn and I’m 25 and I’m 5’1 and 102lbs. I have always admired the little mermaid. I have always known and sang along with the movie, so much so that my family asks me to take a break from doing so. This would be my dream come true. I absolutely love to sing and would love the chance for an opportunity to participate in something so amazing and magical! Please consider me because my voice is worth hearing! As I’m sure you’ve heard before, dynamite comes in small packages and that’s exactly how I feel because my voice just explodes out of me!

  56. Isabel

    I love The Little Mermaid and Ariel has always been my favorite princess. She and I are so much alike and share a similar story. I think I should be part of the cast because I always get told I look like Ariel and last year I dressed up as Ariel to Mickey’s Halloween party and a bunch of kids thought I was the real life Ariel and it really made my day to see so many children get excited and happy. I’ve always wanted to have a role as Ariel since I was little I’ve dreamt about being The Little Mermaid. I’m currently in my 20’s but I still look a lot younger than my age and I really want this role. It would be a dream come true.

  57. Shannon

    Hi, I’m Shannon. I’m not going to leave a long response because I feel that everyone loves the little mermaid! It’s a given, of course. I love to sing and I would do my absolute best for any opportunity I would be lucky enough to receive. I’m only 5’1 and 102 lbs., but as I’m sure you’ve heard before dynamite comes in small packages. My voice is worth hearing!

  58. Alyssa Judge

    The Little Mermaid has been my favorite Disney movie since I was a young girl. Ariel’s courage and determination has inspired me to follow my dreams and pursue what I believe in. She is easily my favorite Disney princess and I aspire to be like her. Kind and brave and determined.

  60. Emily

    Hi, my name is Emily. I have always been in love with the story of The Little Mermaid. It’s my favorite fairytale story of all time including both the book and the movie. The music is beautiful, the storyline in the original book is both heartbreaking and beautiful, and I feel strongly connected to this story in general. I have dark blue eyes, blonde hair, 5’4″, and pretty slim. If there’s anyway I can be included in this beautiful masterpiece, please let me know.

  63. Savannah

    Hi! I’m Savannah I have always loved Ariel I remember watching The Little Mermaid on TV all the time as a kid, I even once dyed my hair red and I’m willing to do it again! I would love to audition for her role, and if I don’t make the list, I hope it goes to someone who really deserves it and fits the part. Please consider me for any Disney role, and I know I’m only 14 but I feel I still have a lot of potential to grow. I’m always cautious on the internet, so for any more information please email me.

  64. Cyndi Jacques

    I want to be part of your world ?

  65. Maria Flores

    please contact me if you are looking to fill the role of Ursula. I am 30 years old, Spaniard and Irish female with a voluptuous form, can resonate and am able to voice Disney’s Ursula almost completely on point and perfect.

    I’m looking in phoenix but I’m able to send if any attention or drive out to addition if necessary.

    Ursula may not be the most loved character, but her wickedness and sadistic streak, along with her delicious sarcasm make for a very pivotal role in this story, without her, Ariel would never have been able to marry her prince.

  66. Faye Kellett

    Hi, my name is Faye and I’m 18 years old.
    Of course Ariel was always my favourite princess, living in a total fantasy as a mermaid and what child wouldn’t be completely captivated by that. When we have been to Orlando Disney and watched the live show, my Dad would record it and I would watch it back in awe, watching every movement and listening to every vocal from the actress that played Ariel. I still watch it back and to this day I still reciprocate the feelings I had as a child and imagine myself performing the infamous song “Part Of Your World” live and making the audience feel that it is real and instilling magic into the hearts of children. From as far back as I can remember I would sing it over and over hoping to nail it like Jodie Benson did. I always admired Ariel’s character in striving for what she wanted and that she would go to any lengths for love which I see as a precious message than can be lost and forgotten from time to time. To me its so much more than a movie, its part of my world and I would love the opportunity to work on such an honourable project, thank you.
