Audition Dates and times
Saturday June 4th @ 6:30 pm and Sunday, June 5th @ 3pm
Please note that every cast member will be expected to sing, though some only in chorus. There are also
some dance numbers, so experience in dance is a definite asset for some of the parts. For the audition please
be prepared to sing the scale and it would also be great if you could prepare to sing A World of My Own:
not a song in this show, and it is (we think) not too hard to learn. We have the sheet music if you would like,
just indicate that when you book your audition. Also, if you really want to be in this show but are worried about
your singing ability, please don’t let that prevent you from auditioning. We believe everyone can sing, they
may just have a different style and our vocal coaches are amazing so, if you LIKE to sing, enjoy music and
would like to be a part of this show, please come on out and give it a try!!
To arrange an audition please

the Birds, Mouse, Caterpillar, Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, March Hare, Dormouse, Knave of Hearts, Queen and
King, and more including facing a trial at the end. The show has 16 musical numbers and several segments of
