Little Mermaid Characters

Ariel (F, 18-35)

Innocent, trusting, and a little naive. Looking for a less superficial world than the one she is surrounded by. An excellent singer in both pop and musical theatre styles, good dancer, experience with improv and/or audience interaction a plus.

Eric (M, 18-35)

Friendly, outgoing and still living in his Olympic champion brother’s shadow. He just wants a life where he can be proud to be who he is. An excellent singer in both pop and musical theatre styles, good dancer, experience with improv and/or audience interaction a plus.

Trident (M, 35-70)

Royalty of the sea. The perfect smile is what makes the perfect selfie and nothing is more important. This stubborn parent wants the best for Ariel, only his version of the best doesn’t quite match up with Ariel’s. A good singer, comedy and dance experience a plus.

Seb (M or F, 20-50)

Ordered to watch over Ariel, this crustacean is everyone’s favourite personality on the outside and a nervous, neurotic mess on the inside. An excellent singer, excellent physical comedy skills, dance and experience with improv and/or audience interaction a plus.

Follower (M or F, 12- 25)

Willing to go along for the ride with Ariel because they look up to her. Easily influenced by anyone older, or cooler, this little fish desperately wants to fit in. Has serious FOMO. A good singer, good dancer, good physical comedy skills.

Brain (M or F, 15-75)

This charmed bird has the power to see through the eyes of human’s… or do they? Goofy, charming, and a bit of a know-it-all who knows nothing! A good singer, excellent physical comedy skills, good dancer, experience with improv and/or audience interaction.

Calamari (M or F, 15-50)

Ursula’s evil lackey. Has a great sense of bravado, believes themselves to be a great warrior, able to take on anyone… but finds they’re often wrong about that. Good singer, excellent physical comedy and improv, dance a plus.

Frankie/Frannie (M or F, 15-50)

Ursula’s evil lackey. The nerdy brains behind the evil duo. Definitely not going to win any physical fight, but usually executes the winning strategy. Good singer, excellent physical comedy and improv, dance a plus.

The Merdashians (18-40)

These are Ariel’s siblings. Obsessed with fame, beauty, and celebrity status, these merfolk cannot understand why she won’t just conform. Great singers, good dancers.

Chef Gordon (M, 18-75)

Master chef of the palace. Passionate, physical, can lose his temper in a moment. He often oversteps from the kitchen into the daily life of Eric. A good singer, good physical comedy, British accent.

Coach Grimsby (M, 25 -75)

Was once the coach to Eric’s brother, now is trying to repeat his success with Eric. Is always in coach mode, even when talking about the sensitive subjects of love and marriage. Good singer, good comedic skills.

Gloria (F, 18- 75)

Palace servant and assistant to Ariel when she arrives. She is a feminist and is always trying to improve equality and gender roles both in the palace and the kingdom. She is huge supporter of Ariel, and thanks she would be greta for Eric. Good singer, good comedic skills.

Max the Dog (M or F, any age)

Prince Eric’s dog, loyal to a fault. Usually doesn’t like people who take away Eric’s attention, but Ariel is an exception. Doesn’t quite get that Eric might want alone time with Ariel. Great physicality.
