DISNEY'S THE LITTLE MERMAID

IN REHEARSALS
REGISTRATIONS CLOSED

Disney's "The Little Mermaid" celebrates 15 years of productions for NYTC and culminates in another spectacular season performing at Auckland's Aotea Centre, proudly sponsored by Risland.

The National Youth Theatre is an all-access training programme for children and young adults aged between 7 - 21. You don't need to audition to be part of the chorus, and lead roles are auditioned from within the cast. Rehearsals are broken up through the day by age group, and all of the skills you need to participate in the show are taught by our experienced tutors. Rehearsals will be mostly Sunday afternoons, with lead rehearsals on Thursday evenings.

We run special performances for schools at a heavily discounted educational rate. If your school is interested in attending please get in touch.

Our younger cast, Teams Red and Yellow (11 and under) rehearse together, then are split into two groups for the performances, each performing 4 shows. This helps to keep our younger cast members fresh and enthused throughout the production week.
