Look at this casting roundup! Isn’t it neat? In today’s notices, a nonunion production of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” musical is casting talent for the title role, as well as her love interest, Prince Eric. We’ve also got three (paid!) on-camera opportunities! 

The Players Guild Theatre is casting a male and female actor to play Ariel and Prince Eric in its nonunion production of “The Little Mermaid.” The musical, with a score by Alan Menken, will hold by-appointment auditions in Canton, Ohio on April 2. A run is set for May 12–28, also in Canton. Hired actors will be paid a total stipend of $500. 

“Pitch Perfect 3,” starring Anna Kendrick, Miley Cyrus, and more, is casting talent for several background roles, including military members and hotel patrons. The flick is shooting March 30–April 2 in the Atlanta, Georgia area. Talent will be compensated $64/eight hours. 

Male and female talent ages 28–38 is needed to depict background FBI agents in a forthcoming ABC pilot, with shooting slated for March 26 and 27 in New York City. Those hired will be paid $121/10 hours of work, and overtime beyond that.

Casting is underway for “The Bubble Boy,” a 30-second web commercial for “all OXI” laundry detergent. Seeking a female actor aged 22–50 to portray a mom, a male actor aged 0–15 for the title role, and multiple male and female actors ages 18 and up to depict parents at a little league game, the spot will shoot either April 29 or 30 in Los Angeles, California. Pay will be $50–$200, depending on the role.
