Project Main Details

The Missing Mermaid 
This is a puppet show to be performed to children on a major cruise line. This is a pilot show, but if successful, it will be performed on all ships on the line and will be a regular event with the very real possibility for more shows and voice over work in the future.

Looking for 5 male voices of different ages, from 15 to 30's Remember this is for children, so be very animated. Cartoon style reads.

Read all five or any one of the audition. Remember that Jose, the main character has an hispanic accent. Please slate each audition with your name and the name of each character before each read.

Script Details

Notes included in script per character. 
JOSE – Is a Fish
15 -16 year old boy. Hispanic accent.
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.
Jose: Oh hello everybody! Didn’t expect to see you there. I tell you what I need some cheering up after that little accident how about when I say Hi Everybody will you say Hi Jose? Shall we give it a go? (AUDIENCE RESPONSE) Hi Everybody! (AUDIENCE RESPONSE) Oh no, no, no you are going to have to be louder than that. Lets try it again… Hi Everybody. (AUDIENCE RESPONSE) That was better. Well, we are trying to pick up our invites for the Ball we have to get to the office before it closes, they won’t let us in without an invite. Oh, I am so excited for the Ball. Do you all want to know a secret?

ANDRE Is a Dragon
20ish Male
Andre thinks that he is a Dolphin and carries Jose everywhere. He is always really excited even when times are tough. He is very easily distracted.
Andre: Jose, how do you know we are going the right way? Don’t you think we should have told the Guards? They are much more trained than we are. What do you think will happen when they notice she is missing?
Jose: We will have found her before then. I know we will. You don’t need to be trained to find someone it will be fine.
Andre: Well it’s a good job I have echolocation isn’t it?
Jose: (CONFUSED) Ermm Andre, I didn’t know dragons have echolocation.
Andre: Dragons! Who said anything about Dragons? Of course they don’t, silly. (PROUD) We Dolphins we have it.
Jose: Ermm, Andre. I have been meaning to speak to you about that.
Andre: Hey! I am picking something up. Large Mammal over there!

OCTAVA Is an Octopus
30ish Male flamboyant, effeminate, very dramatic (like Cam on Modern Family)
Lonely and has been living in the dark ocean for many years. He is seeking new friends and wants to be famous.
Octava: Yes, have you brought your cameras?
Andre: (CONFUSED) Cameras? Who do you think we are? We are just a fish and a dragon coming to rescue a mermaid.
Octava: Are you are not here to make us famous?
Jose: Famous? (CONFUSED) How will we make you famous?
Octava: Because I will be front-page news.
Jose: Nobody even knows she is missing yet.
Octava: (BEGINS TO CRY) Oh this hasn’t worked out for me. I just want to be famous; I just want everyone to know my name.
Andre: You can’t be famous by kidnapping someone, even I know that.
Octava: I just thought it would get me some attention, no harm has come to Sunny, and she is sat in there having a seaweed facial wrap. I think she is having a good time. I have looked after her. I just want some friends. I have lived in the darkest parts of the ocean for such a long time and it has been so very lonely, I didn’t know what to do.

Naughty crocodiles Snap and Tickle
20- 30ish Males
Snap is a bit more sensible than Tickle, but still a bumbling silly criminal type.. low range voice
Tickle is goofy, dopey, bumbling criminal type. High range voice
Snap: Right now what?
Tickle: Well now we wait.
Snap: But what are we waiting for?
Tickle: We have to wait for them to notice she is missing then they will all know our names and we will become famous.
Snap: I am still not too sure about this plan, something tells me it is not going to work out.
Octava: (WAKES UP AND YAWNS) What are you two talking about?
Tickle: We have kidnapped her, as you asked.
Octava: Oh, so you have (SILLY GIGGLE) Oh I can’t wait to be famous, everyone will know my name.
