PCT invites you to be part of their world as Disney’s The Little Mermaid is replacing Spamalot as the 2018 Summer production.

The author of Spamalot has asked PCT to postpone its production until Summer 2019.

“We appreciate Pickerington Community Theatre changing their production dates of Spamalot to accommodate the authors,” said Steve Spiegel, President and CEO of Theatrical Rights Worldwide. 

PCT is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors have now secured the rights to produce Disney’s The Little Mermaid this summer. “We really wanted to replace Spamalot with another show that we could get really excited about,” said PCT President Chris Gallaugher. “This is going to be a full version, big stage, Broadway style production!”

PCT Vice President Adam Schroeder was set to direct Spamalot and will co-direct Disney’s The Little Mermaid with Gallaugher. “I’m very excited to direct this show with Chris. We’ve co-directed Willy Wonka and The Wizard of Oz and had a lot of fun, and I’m sure Disney’s The Little Mermaid will be the same,” said Schroeder. “Of course I’m bummed that we won’t be producing Spamalot this Summer, but I’m very excited to get to work on Disney’s The Little Mermaid.”

This production is unpaid and non-union.

Auditions will be held at Epiphany Lutheran Church (268 Hill Road North, Pickerington, Ohio 43147).

Please choose one of the following audition dates:

Friday, April 27 – 7:00 PM-9:30PM
Saturday, April 28 – 10:00 AM-2:00 PM

Callbacks, if needed, will be held on Sunday, April 29 – 2:00 PM-4:00 PM.

If you are unable to attend auditions during the aforementioned dates, please contact co-directors Adam Schroeder at adam.schroeder@pctshows.com or Chris Gallaugher at chris.gallaugher@pctshows.com to schedule a separate date or coordinate a video audition.

Performances will be held at the Heritage Theater (100 North East Street, Pickerington, Ohio 43147) on the following dates:

8:00 PM on Fridays and Saturdays, July 13-14 and 20-21
2:00 PM on Sundays, July 15 and 22

The tentative rehearsal schedule will be Friday evenings, Saturdays from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM, and Sundays from 2:00 PM-5:00 PM. Rehearsals are scheduled so that participants only need to attend when they are actually needed.

The audition process has a few simple steps:

1.) You will be asked to fill out an audition form. You may attach a resume and picture if you wish but it is not required. Please bring a calendar that includes your conflicts for the above dates. Audition forms will be available during the audition dates and times or you may click HERE to download a form and complete it in advance.

2.) You will have your picture taken and a number will be assigned to you.

3.) Be prepared to sing part of a song of your choice (no more than one minute long). A piano is available for use and an accompanist will be provided. A capella singing or CD accompaniment is acceptable. Please choose age appropriate music. A Broadway song is preferable but please do not sing a song from Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

4.) If seeking a speaking role, please be prepared to stay for cold readings from the script. There are many videos of this show online for you to check out various characters. A list of character descriptions can be viewed by clicking HERE. Please note that some actors may play multiple parts as noted in the descriptions, but they may also be broken out into standalone roles.

5.) We will have a simple dance audition (performed in small groups.) We are also looking for featured dancers. For chorus roles we only need to see basic movement.

You will receive a phone call in the evening of Saturday, April 28 if you have been called back for a lead role. If you are not called back, this does not mean you will not be cast, nor does it mean you will not have a speaking role (as there are many named roles). The final cast list will be sent via e-mail on Wednesday evening, May 2 and posted to our website.


This June, Pickerington Community Theatre will host Missoula Children’s Theatre for a weeklong theatre camp for children entering 1st grade through 12th grade!

Camp dates are June 11 through 16, 2018. The weeklong camp begins with an open group audition (Monday) and culminates in two public performances (Saturday at 3:00 PM and 5:30 PM). Fifty to sixty students are cast and well rehearsed throughout the week, learning lines, songs, and choreography to perform as an ensemble in producing a full-length musical. All of MCT’s shows are original adaptations of children’s stories and fairytales–a twist on the classic stories that we know and love!

This year, PCT will present MCT’s take on the classic ROBIN HOOD!

Participation in the camp will cost $120.00 for the first child from a family. Each additional child within the immediate family can participate for a reduced price of $100.00. The cost includes camp registration and a camp t-shirt. Camp will run 10:00 AM through 2:30 PM, Monday through Friday. The kids will have a 30 minute lunch break each day, so make sure to pack and send lunch with your camper. On Saturday, campers will attend from 12:00 PM through the final performance.

The camp and performances will be held at Epiphany Lutheran Church (268 Hill Road North, Pickerington, Ohio 43147). The registration deadline is set for Monday, June 4, 2018.

Registration is now open! Click HERE to sign up!
