Character info for "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"

Northwest Arkansas Audio Theater’s production of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” includes the following characters, in order of appearance:

NWAAT Announcer
Older Alice (narrator)
Alice (in-scene)
White Rabbit
Chorus of animals/croquet players/jurors
Young Man
Father William
Frog Footman
Cheshire Cat
March Hare
Mad Hatter
Two, Five, and Seven, Queen’s Gardeners
King of Hearts
Queen of Hearts
Mock Turtle
Knave of Hearts

Both Older Alice and Alice appear throughout the play. These roles will be understudied.

The White Rabbit, King of Hearts, Queen of Hearts, Gryphon, Mock Turtle, Duchess, March Hare, Mad Hatter, and Cheshire Cat appear in two or more scenes.

Single-scene named characters will most likely be doubled, with one actor playing two or more.

The Chorus provides background “walla” in four scenes. Actors not otherwise in scene will help. There will also be “commercials” to present, with jingles to be sung.

A crew of two, three, or four people will do Sound Effects (SFX). Some may also have lines.

Musicians, singers, and people interested in sound system workings are welcome.

Note: this adaptation is derived entirely from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, with no material from “Through the Looking Glass”. Those wishing to become more familiar with the story and characters are encouraged to read the book.

Auditions for "Alice in Wonderland" information

Northwest Arkansas Audio Theater will hold auditions for “Alice” at 7:00 PM on the evenings of Tuesday March 17, 2020 and Thursday March 19, 2020, in the Rail Room at First Presbyterian Church of Springdale, on Gutensohn.

All readings are cold; although it will be useful to read the book. (This adaptation is based entirely on “Wonderland”, with nothing from “Looking Glass”.)

Audio Theater depends on voices, music, and sound effects to tell the stories. Age and appearance are less important.
