Alice, Small Alice and Tall Alice are differently sized versions of the same character. She is a spunky girl who enjoys adventures and is on a journey of self-discovery. She should be charming to the audience and be able to command the stage by herself.
The Cheshire Cat is played by three separate actors who play the head, the body, and the tail of the cat. The Cheshire Cat serves as the Narrator for the story and the actors who are cast need to be able to speak clearly and be good story- tellers. Some solo singing required.
The White Rabbit is an energetic, worrisome character that hardly ever stops moving. Some solo singing required. Needs to continuously exude a lot of energy and rapid- fire change of focus.
Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee are a pair of goofballs similar to old comedy teams like Laurel & Hardy. They should be good singers and actors who work well as a team.
Mathilda is Alice’s older sister and a non-singing role. A strong actor who can speak clearly.
The Flowers (Rose, Petunia, Lily, Violet, Daisy) are the snooty, mean girls who think they are the most important people in the whole world. They need to be good performers and singers.
Caterpillar, part sensei, part diva, the Caterpillar. The Caterpillar is one cool character who needs to be able to sing, dance, and act well. He/She provides the heart for the story and really convinces Alice to be herself.
The Mad Hatter is the life of the tea party and should be performed by someone who enjoys acting larger than life. The actor needs to be comfortable being silly and has to sing one song.
The March Hare is the counterpart to the Mad Hatter and also enjoys a good party. A little less crazy than the Mad Hatter, the March Hare is a happy fun character who enjoys playing. The March Hare has solo parts in one song, but a good actor can “speak-sing” them easily.
The Queen of Hearts is the big mean bully of the story. You need a great actress for this role who has a good singing voice. The Queen of Hearts must have a commanding presence and should be a little scary, but funny at the same time.
The King of Hearts is the often forgotten ruler of Wonderland. You need to have a good actor for this role who can handle dialogue well. He could be a small boy to highlight the fact that he is in the shadow of the Queen.
The Doorknob is a wonderful additional role for a chorus member who is very funny.
The Dodo Bird is the Captain of the Queen’s Navy and needs to be a good actor and singer. He is in command of the lobsters and other animals and is another of Wonderland’s vibrant characters.
Other group parts: Rock lobsters, Playing cards – group singing
