Imagination Theater is pleased to announce general auditions for Alice in Wonderland to be held Saturday, September 24 at Imagination Theater. All auditioners must check in from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. The General Auditions will last from 9:00 a.m. to noon with Call Backs the following day.
As Alice in Wonderland is not a musical, auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, improvisations, and basic stage movement. 35 roles are available for children and adults. Minimum age for children is 8 years old. The cast also includes roles for eight young dancers with strong movement and reading skills. The role of Alice will be double cast. All auditioners interested in being considered for the role of Alice must prepare a one-minute monologue (not from the show) for the General Auditions.
Primary rehearsals will begin in January, 2017. Alice in Wonderland will run from April 7 through May 8, 2017. Perusal scripts will be available for check out from the box office in September. More information can be found at www.imaginationtheater.net
