The Waupaca Children’s Theatre will hold auditions from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, at the Waupaca Learning Center’s music room.
This year’s summer production will be Disney’s “Alice In Wonderland Jr.”
There are a wide variety of large and small roles for both boys and girls ages 6 to 16. Auditionees will be asked to sing a short song, read from a provided script and demonstrate simple choreography.
Any student wishing to audition without a parent or guardian present must have a signed note from home stating that he or she has permission.
During Alice’s madcap adventures, she chases the White Rabbit, races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game.
Roles also include three Cheshire Cats, a chorus of children playing in the park, rock lobsters, talking fish, royal cardsmen, unbirthday partiers, a group of mean-girl flowers and dozens of other wacky characters.
Disney’s “Alice In Wonderland” is a stage adaptation of the 1951 film, featuring updated dialogue and new arrangements of such classic Disney songs as “I’m Late,” “The Un-birthday Song” and “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah.”
Rehearsals will be from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning June 9. No rehearsals on afternoons, evenings, Fridays or weekends.
The production, directed by Amy Holterman, will have performances at area libraries and community centers from July 21-24.
The Waupaca Children’s Theatre is a division of the Waupaca Fine Arts Festival.
