The Un-Common Theatre Company
Announces Auditions for its
Young Performers Production of
"Disney's Alice in Wonderland JR."

Alice in Wonderland

The Un-Common Theatre Company's Young Performers Production is excited to offer auditions for students in grades 1 through 6 for Disney’s Alice in Wonderland JR. on December 14th, 2014 from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm. Directed by Sean Leehan, Choreographed by Kalen Hughes and Music Directed by Linda Barbieri, this show will feature a cast of 1st through 6th graders and will be performed at the Qualters Middle School in Mansfield, MA, March 13-15, 2015.

Lewis Carroll's famous inquisitive heroine comes to life in Disney's Alice in Wonderland JR., a delightful adaptation of the classic Disney film. Join Alice as 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! The story is narrated by not one, but three Cheshire Cats! You’ll also meet dozens of other wonderfully wacky characters including rock lobsters, talking fish, royal cardsmen, unbirthday partiers, as well as a group of mean-girl flowers.

Disney's Alice in Wonderland JR. is a fast-paced stage adaptation of the timeless film, featuring such classic Disney songs as "I'm Late," "The Un-birthday Song" and "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah.” The whole family will enjoy travelling down the rabbit hole and joining Alice in her madcap adventures in Wonderland!

Disney's Alice in Wonderland JR. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

Things to Know About Un-Common Auditions


Auditions for Un-Common shows are open to all those interested within the age ranges specified. No previous acting experience or affiliation with the theatre company is necessary.

An auditioner will audition with many actors and will be offered a role at the total discretion of the director, choreographer and music director. Parent participation, affiliation with Un-Common Theatre or past involvement will not be considered in casting decisions. Every performer comes with different strengths and qualities and casting decisions are made based on many factors including talent (singing, dancing and acting), look (age/height/coloring), how auditioners look/interact as a group, etc. This process is often difficult and the creative team (director, music director and choreographer) takes great care in casting the best mix of performers for each production.

We customarily present four productions throughout our season. Auditions and performance dates for these shows are:
  Auditions Show Performances  
  September Fall Production November  
  December Young Performers Production March
 
  December or January Spring Production April
 
  May Young Adult Production July
 
  May Improv Soup Monthly October - June
