Character descriptions:

Alice
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.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: E5
Vocal range bottom: B3

Small Alice
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. Small Alice must also be a good singer and actor while being comfortable as a big part of two dance numbers.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: E6
Vocal range bottom: B3 

Tall Alice
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. While Tall Alice doesn’t have any solos, she needs to be a good actor with solid comic timing.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: E6
Vocal range bottom: B3

The Cheshire Cat
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 storytellers. Strong singing skills are not a must, but comic timing is, as these three comprise a very funny character.
Gender: Both
Vocal range top: E5
Vocal range bottom: C4

White Rabbit
The White Rabbit is an energetic, worrisome character that hardly ever stops moving. Even though the White Rabbit has a solo – the singing should come secondary to finding the person who can continuously exude a lot of energy and rapid-fire change of focus.
Gender: Both

Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee
Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee are a pair of goofballs similar to old comedy teams like Abbott & Costello or Laurel & Hardy. They should be good singers and actors who work well as a team.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: E6
Vocal range bottom: C5

Mathilda
Mathilda is Alice’s older sister and a non-singing role. She should be a strong actor who can speak loudly and clearly.
Gender: Female

The Flowers
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 who can handle harmonies.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: C6
Vocal range bottom: B3

Caterpillar
Caterpillar, part sensei, part diva, the Caterpillar is comprised of five actors who play the head, body and all those hands, which move in synchronized gestures to help emphasize a point. The Caterpillar is one cool character who needs to be able to sing, dance, and act well. He provides the heart for the story and really convinces Alice to be herself.
Gender: Both
Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: A3

Mad Hatter
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, although it is an easy song to “speak-sing” if necessary.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: B6
Vocal range bottom: B5

March Hare
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.
Gender: Both
Vocal range top: B6
Vocal range bottom: B5

Queen Of Hearts
The Queen of Hearts is the big mean bully of the story. We need a great actor for this role who has a full resonant voice and is able to follow music well. The Queen of Hearts must have a commanding presence and should be a little scary, but funny at the same time.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: C4

King Of Hearts
The King of Hearts is the often forgotten ruler of Wonderland.We need to have a good actor for this role who can handle some very high-level vocabulary. Casting a small boy in this role will highlight the fact that he is in the shadow of the Queen.
Gender: Male

Doorknob
The Doorknob is a wonderful additional role for a chorus member who is very funny. The character is based somewhat on Jimmy Durante and our actor can have fun playing with that idea.
Gender: Both

Dodo Bird
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.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: D6
Vocal range bottom: C5

Ensemble
The Chorus (Kids Playing in the Park, Rock Lobsters, Talking Fish, Royal Cardsmen, Unbirthday Partiers, etc.) should be comprised of good actors and singers who are featured in all of the production numbers. There are many opportunities for featured moments for many of our ensemble members.
Gender: Both
Vocal range top: E5
Vocal range bottom: F3
