Seeking—“Elsa:” Female, 9-14, Young Elsa, Middle Elsa, and Elsa are all the elder Princess of Arendelle at different ages. Next in line for the throne, Elsa has been born with magical powers that can overwhelm her when she becomes afraid and harms others if not handled with care. Fearful of hurting anyone, especially her beloved sister, Anna, Elsa becomes anxious and withdrawn as she grows older, before eventually learning to take control of, and become confident in, her powers which she masterfully uses to manipulate the Snow Chorus; “Anna:” Female, 9-14; Filled with a tremendous amount of light, energy, and love, Anna is a hopelessly optimistic extrovert at all ages, but as she grows older, she longs for connection with others, especially her sister, Elsa. Each version of this warm and determined princess requires a strong singer with great comic timing. Because Anna and Elsa share such a close bond, consider auditioning these roles together to get a sense of the performers' chemistry. Once your actors playing Young Anna and Middle Anna are finished with these roles, consider adding them to the ensemble for the remainder of the show; “Hans:” 9-14, The ambitious Prince of the Southern Isles and overlooked thirteenth son of a king. Hans constantly strives to find a way to make good and stand out. He boasts an exceedingly charming facade that fools everyone - including Anna and, ideally, the audience! - into believing he's Prince Charming, when really, he's just a jerk. Cast an actor who can play both sides of this two-faced prince with relish as well as confidently sing the moments of harmony in "Love Is an Open Door;" “Kristoff” (Supporting): 9-14, Kristoff is a hardworking ice harvester. Kristoff has a sarcastic veneer and a rough-around-the-edges exterior that hides a big heart. Taken in by the Hidden Folk when he was young, he loves Pabbie and Bulda dearly but is a bit of a loner with a reindeer for a best friend- until he meets Anna. With only a few short singing solos, focus on casting a performer who can balance a cynical sense of humor with charming banter; “Young Ana” (Supporting): Female, 8-10; “Middle Ana:” Female, 8-10; “Young Elsa” (Supporting): Female, 8-10; “Middle Elsa” (Supporting): Female, 10-14; “King Agnarr:” 8-14, The warm-hearted ruler of Arendelle is committed to protecting both his family and the Townspeople from his eldest daughter's powers. With only one singing solo, focus on casting an actor who can play this father figure convincingly; “Queen Iduna” (Supporting): 8-14, The queen possesses a sense of rightness and kindness that guides her in the protection of her two young girls. A daughter of the Northern Nomads, this queen has the ability to communicate with the Hidden Folk of the mountains and so understands Elsa's powers deeply; look for an actor who can portray this sense of compassion; “Olaf” (Supporting): 8-14, The magical snowman created by Anna and Elsa when they were young. Olaf is endearingly delighted by everything - especially the idea of summer. Goofy and sweet, Olaf should possess a childlike innocence and excellent comic timing; Pabbie and Bulda (Supporting): 8-14, Pabbie and Bulda are the mystical leaders of the Hidden Folk who have a soft spot for "strays." Ever-benevolent, these parental figures want what's best for Kristoff, even if they are a bit misguided in their efforts. Look for amiable performers who will endear themselves to the audience in the crowd- pleaser, "Fixer Upper:" “Sven” (Supporting): 8-14, Sven is a reindeer of few words, a fiercely loyal pal to Kristoff, and loves giving the ice harvester a hard time. Look for a performer with good comic timing and terrific physical acting skills who can devise a strong movement vocabulary to bring this furry charmer to life. Consider auditioning potential Svens and Kristoffs together as the two should share a visible bond; Ensemble: All Genders, 8-14, singers and dancers. Seeking talent from The Bronx, New York NY.

She plays his love interest, and they talk occasionally when not filming. She’s aware of the pressure having a director as his dad puts on Sam. Seeking talent Nationwide (United States).

He's a cheery, Walt Disney restauranteer of the South with a welcoming smile; Ketchup (Voiceover): 15-60, Passionate and conflicted. The straight man of this cheery condiment group, growing ever-so frustrated at how they would rather sing instead of stop the thieves planning to rob their diner.

Fee negotiable based on experience and talent. Seeking—“Pearl Johnson” (Principal Lead) (Lead): 46-72, Pearl is a simple character yet complexed. Simple in the fact that she is a good wife and mother, as well as, a working class, Christian woman – a woman of strong faith.

Johnson” (Lead): Male, Work From Home (Lead): A PhD, progressive minded, youthful hearted minister that is in search of a church in need of a pastor. He seems himself as a change maker, an activist, and a man called by God to serve. His greatest fear is his past and the anger in his heart that is caused by it.

Superior singing voice; strong actor; “Ruth” (Lead/Chorus): A private, no-nonsense yet liberated woman who knows the pleasures of sexual freedom, intimidating to the average man or woman, exuding a level of confidence that suggests that her heart cannot be penetrated or pierced.
