Alice in Wonderland

Everything is Curiouser and Curiouser!

Alice in Wonderland

Based on the classic by Lewis Carroll. Adapted by Anne Coulter Martens.

As the curtain rises, Alice slides into view at the end of her long fall down the rabbit-hole. It is a more delightful place for the audience than for Alice, who is trying desperately to get back home. She tries to get help from the Mad Hatter, the Rabbit, and from the very nice Cheshire Cat.

Rated G

WHAT TO PREPARE:

  • Audition Requirements
  • All those auditioning shall be prepared with the following:
    • Present cold reading from the script.
    • Present a 30 second to 2 minute monologue
    • Auditioners should be prepared to discuss their understanding of the production and various characters they are auditioning for (It is strongly encouraged that all who audition become familiar with Alice in Wonderland characters and general storyline associated with it –Know Your Story)
  • Audition Tips:

COST:

  • A $40.00 registration fee for all cast is due at the first rehearsal to cover a portion of the cost of sets, props, costumes and marketing.
  • To attend the performances, we have reserved seating with a suggested donation of $9.00 for children and $13.00 for adults.
  • For costumes, depending on the style of the show, we may ask actors to provide certain pieces of clothing that they most likely already have such as blue jeans, T-shirt, long sleeve white shirt, black pants, coat, shoes, etc.

PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT:

  • There are many ways for you to volunteer and connect with your teen or child.
  • We will ask Parents to lead up committees such as Costumes, Props, Backstage, Scenery, Lighting, Dressing Rooms, Concessions, Cast Party and others. If you do not feel comfortable leading the committee, we ask you to please consider helping by donating your time to be a part of these committees. We invite you to learn new skills and share your talent.
  • In order to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for everyone, all adults over the age of 18 must have a background check. A Creative Theater Board Member will gather information from you and will then run the Background Check at the Theater’s expense. This is the same procedure required in the Sevier County School District for all parents who volunteer to help at school or go on field trips.
  • We strive to be respectful of everyone’s time. At rehearsals, we practice specific scenes and you will only be needed if you are in the scenes taught that day.
  • A detailed rehearsal schedule will be given to each cast member with a specific breakdown of who is needed each rehearsal. Every cast member may not be required to attend every rehearsal; however, it is crucial to the success of the rehearsal process that everyone attends on required days.
  • Participants may not miss more than two rehearsals or will be removed from the production. During the final week of rehearsals (called Tech Week or Dress Rehearsals), we will rehearse each day through the opening show.
