The Little Theatre of Owatonna announces auditions for The Little Mermaid and the Prince and the play How I Became a Pirate. Tryouts will be Monday, August 22, and Tuesday, August 23, from 6-8:30PM at LTO.

How I Became a Pirate is a musical. Cast needs include one boy age 8-16 years old. There is also a need for seven male or female pirates ages 16 and older.  The play is about a band of pirates trying to find the perfect place to bury their treasure.

The Little Mermaid and the Prince is not a musical. Cast needs include two girls and one boy who are teenagers. There is also a need for a female in her late 20s or older. The Little Mermaid becomes infatuated with a statue, which falls to the ocean floor. The Mermaid then travels to the bottom of the ocean to find the man who resembles the statue.
