Could be called anytime on Thursdays between 5:45-9:00 pm. This is only “flexible” rehearsal time, as all other dates/practices are given to you upfront. The schedule for the following week will be released on Fridays and created around the actor’s supplied availability. The size (amount of lines/scenes/songs) of the role and age of the performer (we always aim to release our youngest cast members early) will determine the frequency and duration of attendance.
*In addition to Thursday evenings, lead roles may be asked to attend ensemble rehearsals to practice their musical numbers. The audition materials provide the exact days/times these potential practices will occur so you know before auditions if you can commit to that character’s required schedule.

Alice – Lead Role – Alice, Small Alice, and Tall Alice are differently sized versions of the show’s inquisitive and intrepid young girl. On a journey of self-discovery, the adventurous Alice has the heart of an explorer and instincts of a leader. Even when frustrated or confused, she’s awfully charming, so cast an actor who can command the stage. Of the three, Alice carries the heft of the singing solos, being a strong singer is a must for this starring role.
Bb3 – Eb5
Small Alice – Lead Role – Alice, Small Alice, and Tall Alice are differently sized versions of the show’s inquisitive and intrepid young girl. On a journey of self-discovery, the adventurous Alice has the heart of an explorer and instincts of a leader. Even when frustrated or confused, she’s awfully charming, so cast an actor who can command the stage. Small Alice participates in a few musical numbers that will require good movement and dance skills.
B3 – A4
Tall Alice – Lead Role – Tall Alice, Alice, and Small Alice are differently sized versions of the show’s inquisitive and intrepid young girl. On a journey of self-discovery, the adventurous Alice has the heart of an explorer and instincts of a leader. Even when frustrated or confused, she’s awfully charming, so cast an actor who can command the stage. Tall Alice appears for a few cameo-style moments.
The Cheshire Cat (1, 2, & 3) – Lead Roles – are the perpetually grinning narrators of the story, a magical feline who doesn’t always agree with itself. This role is played by four actors, so we are looking for some serious chemistry when casting. Because you are telling the story we will look for charismatic actors who can play mischievous and mysterious to both Alice and the audience, all while speaking clearly and making their lines exciting! Desired Accents: Latino/Hispanic *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
The White Rabbit – Lead Role – is the fussy royal trumpeter, ever-worried that he is running terribly late. Look for an actor who can exude his nervous energy through constant fidgety movement. Because of his wordy solo, excellent diction is also a plus! Desired Accent: Swiss/German/Austrian *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
C3 – E4
The Mad Hatter(s) – Lead Role(s) – may be cast as one character or split into two roles. The Hatter(s) is the life of the (tea) party and has a penchant for making up rules. Delightfully eccentric, the Mad Hatter(s) has a flair for the theatrical and very little focus. While this role requires a singing solo, the actor can speak-sing if needed, so we are looking for someone who relishes the nonsensical fun of this charismatic character. Desired Accent: Eastern Asia *Inspo: Mr.Miyagi, Karate Kid / Master Shifu, Kung Fu Panda *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
Bb3 – Bb4
Caterpillar – Lead Role – is Alice’s wise and fabulous mentor. In fact, if she had a fairy godmother, this cool Caterpillar would be it. As a triple threat, this soon-to-be butterfly should be played by an actor with the vocal chops, the moves, and the magnetism to woo anyone in Wonderland. Desired Accent: Dutch/German/Scandinavian/Swedish. No matter what delivery you decide to go with, make sure to bring some serious attitude! *Inspo: Accent-Heimlich, A Bug’s Life, Attitude: Genie, Aladdin, Donkey, Shrek *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
Ab3 – Db5
Queen of Hearts – Lead Role – is the hot-headed and overbearing ruler of Wonderland. The actor we cast needs to portray this mean monarch with theatrical grandiosity. Desired Accent: British *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
C4 – Db5
The Dodo Bird – Lead Role – is the imperious captain of the Queen’s Navy, who leads the caucus race. Looking for an actor with a commanding presence and a suitable singing voice for this soloist. Desired Accent: Jamaican/Caribbean *Inspo: King Julian, Madagascar, Sebastian, Little Mermaid. *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
C4 – D5
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum – Lead Roles – are twins with an identity crisis and an exhausting enthusiasm for proper manners. Superfluously silly, the Tweedles are a comedy duo a la Abbot & Costello and Laurel & Hardy, so comic timing and chemistry is a must. Desired Accent: FrenchAccent Inspo (Not character) Lumiere, Beauty & The Beast, Chef Louie, The Little Mermaid. *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
C#4 – Eb5
Rose, Petunia, Lily, Violet, Daisy – Lead Roles – are a preppy, stuck-up group of perennials. These are “mean girls” of the garden who bully Small Alice by not letting her in their elite club “The Girls Of the Golden Afternoon”. Attitude and strong dancing abilities are needed to perform the West Side Story-inspired dance battle that takes place when they go head to head with their sworn enemies, The Weeds. Desired Accent: Dutch/Scandinavian/Swedish*Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
B3 – D5
March Hare – Featured Role – is Mad Hatter’s chummy sidekick, enjoys a good party. Just slightly more rational than the Mad Hatter, the March Hare lets the frenetic Hatter lead the way, while never passing up the chance to play a silly game. Desired Accent: Eastern Asia *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
B3 – B4
The King of Hearts, the Queen’s partner, has a timid demeanor until taking expert command of Alice’s trial. Since he does not appear until later in the show, he may also double as a different Wonderland Character as needed – just be sure the audience doesn’t see his King costume until he enters with the Queen. Desired Accent: British *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
The Doorknob – Featured Role – is the gatekeeper of Wonderland, knowingly encourages Alice to drink the magic potion. Looking for an actor with a tendency toward the dramatic who can capture Doorknob’s put-upon demeanor. Desired Accent: Actor’s Choice, Surprise Us!! (Examples: New York/East Coast, Canadian, Italian, Country, Transylvanian, Aka: Whatever you got! The funnier the better! *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
Mathilda – Featured Role – is Alice’s scholarly sister, has no time for silly games. Looking for an actor who can portray both the no-nonsense attitude and the affection of a protective older sister.
Dormouse – Featured Role – is the smallest, sleepiest tea party guest. We are looking to cast an extremely petite or younger actor for this role so they are small enough to fit inside a giant teacup. *Gymnastic/acro abilities are a bonus!
The Ace Of Spades, Two Of Clubs, Three Of Diamonds, Four Of Clubs – Featured Roles – Are the hilarious, highly anxious members of the Queen’s royal contingent. Because the Queen of Hearts sends them into a royal panic whenever she is near, we need these actors to be able to physicalize feat in an exaggerated and comedic way. Strong singers and actors who have had vocal training will increase casting odds for this role as each of the Featured Royal Cards have vocal solos and a song that requires harmony singing. Desired Accent: British *Accents are not mandatory but may increase casting odds.*
Poison Ivy, Hedgrove, Thistle, Dandelion – Featured Roles – This is the punk-rock gang of rebels who defend Little Alice after she’s been picked on by the snooty Flowers. In fact, the Weeds and Flowers are sworn enemies; a classic tale of preps vs rebels. Attitude and strong dancing abilities are needed to perform the West Side Story-inspired choreography that’s featured in “The Golden Afternoon” when the two groups go head to head in an epic dance battle!
Lobster Generals, Clam, Jellyfish, Sea Horse, Blowfish – Featured Roles – Make up The Dodo Bird’s trusty troop of silly soldiers! They are devout to their courageous, feathered-brained Captain and follow his orders, no matter how strange they may be. For example, running on land to get dry? I guess no one told him fish belong in the sea! These characters wear some of the most stunningly creative custom-made costumes in the show. Their humorous moments on stage make them fantastic roles for comedic actors who would like to venture into a larger role without too much pressure.
Featured Roles – We are looking to cast dynamic young actors in the roles listed below, to join our older group of featured dancers as they open the show with a bang! Strong acting is a must because the iconic Wonderland characters they each portray will be based on behavior not costuming. Since the first scene takes place in everyday life, these characters will be self-costumed in clothing they might normally wear to the park. Subtle accessories will give clues to their identity and foreshadow the friends Alice will meet when she falls down that fateful rabbit hole. Performers who love to sing, dance, and stand out will be a good fit for these roles as they will be taught group vocals and choreography for their featured musical numbers “Dodgsonland Pt1 & P2”.
The roles below are played by our ensemble groups. Ensemble registration pages explain which role(s) will be played by your age group and a detailed description of each character group. It will also outline each time your group(s) are featured throughout the musical.
