CRESTVIEW — The Florida Chautauqua Theatre seeks actors who want to make a splash in the troupe's May production of the Disney stage musical "The Little Mermaid."

The theatre seeks high school, college and young adult actors for the production. The stage version features Alan Menken and Howard Ashman's Oscar-winning songs from the 1989 animated film, as well as new songs that Menken and Glenn Slater wrote for the stage. Memorable hits include "Under the Sea," Part of Your World" and "Kiss the Girl."

The familiar tale, based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen story, relates the efforts of Ariel, a mermaid, to escape the ocean depths and become human to win the charming Prince Eric's love.
