Auditions for Alice in Wonderland
Auditions for our 116th season winter Mainstage production,"The adventures first...explanations take such a dreadful time."
When Alice's parents decided to move to Tokyo she could never have imagined how bored and isolated she would be. However one day during a particularly boring Japanese lesson a white rabbit takes Alice by the hand and leads her into a fun world she didn't see before. A world where Sumo wrestlers recite poetry, expat wives keep pigs for babies and having a cup of tea is like an assault course.
Go a little bit mad this winter and take part in TIP's production of "Alice in Wonderland". We're looking for people who are willing to be a bit silly and take a fresh look at Lewis Carroll's characters. You can have lots, little, or no experience, but the main thing we're looking for is people who want to have fun and be creative!
Some rehearsals will commence in August/September with main rehearsals commencing in October. If you would like to be involved but are concerned about your availability then please let us know.
***Instructions for the auditions. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!***
Contact us for an audition slot and we'll send you a photograph of someone. We'd like you to think about that person and at the audition we'll be asking you answer questions and ask you to read a short poem as that character as part of a group audition. You can answer in straight dialogue, song or interpretive dance...however you think that character would answer! You can play an instrument, body pop, swing dance, or armpit fart. Whatever you can do, please come along and show us!
At the audition, you will be asked to fill out an Audition Sheet and sign a general waiver.
