Alice In Wonderland Jr - Casting Information

Please note that all descriptions are generalizations based on previous performances for reference only, and are not prerequisites. The Directorial Team may cast the show in any way that suits their overall vision.

Alice
Alice, Small Alice, and Tall Alice are differently sized versions of the show's titular 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
Alice, Small Alice, and Tall Alice are differently sized versions of the show's titular 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
Alice, Small Alice, and Tall Alice are differently sized versions of the show's titular 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.
The Cheshire Cat (1, 2 and 3)
The Cheshire Cat (1, 2, and 3) is the perpetually grinning narrator of the story, a magical feline who doesn't always agree with itself.
White Rabbit
The White Rabbit is the fussy royal trumpeter, ever-worried that he is running terribly late.
Mad Hatter
The Mad Hatter is the life of the (tea) party and has a penchant for making up rules. Delightfully eccentric, the Mad Hatter has a flair for the theatrical and very little focus.
Caterpillar
Caterpillar is Alice's wise and fabulous mentor. In fact, if she had a fairy godmother, this cool Caterpillar would be it.
Dodo Bird
The Dodo Bird is the imperious captain of the Queen's Navy, leads the caucus race.
Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee
Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee 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.
The Flowers
The Flowers (Rose, Petunia, Lily, Violet, Daisy) are a stuck-up group of pleasing perennials.
March Hare
The March Hare is the 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.
Queen of Hearts
The Queen of Hearts is the hotheaded and overbearing ruler of Wonderland.
Ensemble
Park Kids, Sea Creatures, Royal Cards, Party Guests, etc.
Mathilda
Mathilda is Alice's scholarly sister, has no time for silly games.
Doorknob
The Doorknob is the gatekeeper of Wonderland, knowingly encourages Alice to drink the magic potion.
King Of Hearts
The King of Hearts, the Queen's partner, has a timid demeanor until taking expert command of Alice's trial.
