Project Main Details

The Missing Mermaid Jose  
This is for a puppet show to be performed to children onboard a major cruise line... the first of a series. All is cast except for the star of the play... Jose.

We are looking for a young boy (sounding aprox 15 years old) Would love to find someone who is of Hispanic descent, but DO NOT want fake Hispanic accents. If it's real please use it, if it's not, just read it in your normal voice.

Here is the over view:

The story is about a fish, Jose, who lives deep beneath the beautiful sea. He has lots of friends, but there is one thing he really would like and that is to get to dance with the mermaid, Princess Sunny, for Jose really loves her and hopes that by dancing with her she will love him in return. Sunny is having a Birthday Ball and Jose hopes that this will be his opportunity, however also living deep in the sea is Octava the Octopus, he has been living in the dark ocean for many years and has been very lonely, making friends with two ‘naughty crocodiles who are misleading him. They have made him think that the best way to get some attention would be to kidnap the Princess Mermaid at her ball. His crocodile friends carry out his mischievous plan and Sunny is kidnapped, but Jose sees what happens and with the help of his good friend and trusty stead Andre, the dragon he goes off to rescue her. The two friends discover many things on their journey about themselves, Andre discovers he is a dragon and not actually a Dolphin as he has always believed and Jose discovers some new friends including a miserable Manatee. Octava faces the group of strong friends and realizes that kidnapping the princess has only caused them to dislike him when all he wants is to be liked. Realizing he has done it all wrong and feeling sorry for him, Jose and his friends convince Octava to free Sunny and offer to help him make friends the right way by being kind and honest.

Jose – Fish
Main character that the audience sympathizes with. He loves Sunny but is too afraid to tell her. When he goes on the journey he is the strong hero determined to find his damsel.
