Alice in Wonderland - Auditions are open to the public (Adult & High School)

Youth Drama Camp Grades 4-8 Click Here

Pine River - Backus Community Education will hold auditions for Alice in Wonderland on Wednesday, March 21, and Thursday, March 22, from 6:00-7:30 pm at the Pine River – Backus High School Choir Room #74. Please enter through door 2.

In Brainerd Duffield’s adaption of Alice in Wonderland, Alice plunges down the rabbit hole and becomes involved in that madcap and deliciously satiric series of adventures immortalized by Lewis Carroll. Dramatized as a series of episodes from Alice inWonderland and Through the Looking Glass, this kaleidoscope of action and madness has the necessary elements of suspense and frustration to make it all work.

Twenty roles are available for adults and students in grades 9-12. Auditions will consist of reading scene selections for Brainerd Duffield’s version of the beloved classic. This production is a full-length stage play (not a musical).

Rehearsals will typically be held on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings (we will work with schedules!)

Performances on May 4, 5, and 6.

If you cannot attend an audition but would like to be considered for casting, call COmmunity Ed 218-587-2080. Students in grades 4-8 who wish to be part of this production must take the Youth Theater Workshop class offered through PRB Community Education.
