Head down the rabbit hole

Festival Theatre to hold Auditions for Alice in Wonderland

ST. CROIX FALLS, Wis. – Festival Theatre holds auditions Monday for community youths ages 7 to 18 in the Youth & Family Theatre production of "Alice in Wonderland." Audition registration is required in advance.

"The cast includes all the famous characters from the Lewis Carroll’s novels" said Jaclyn Johnson, production coordinator for the show which opens in late April.

In addition to Johnson, Seth Kaltwasser, Danette Olsen and a guest artist (a professional actor) performing in the production will serve as teaching artists for theatre workshops that take place during the rehearsal process and are open for enrollment.

Festival Theatre’s Youth & Family Theatre Series started in 2008 and provides an opportunity for community participation in the performing arts. Though it is not a requirement, the spring show is particularly wonderful for parents who wish to be directly involved along with their children (either in performance or by providing technical theatre support).

Registration is required to audition and all the details can be received by sending an e-mail request to [email protected]. An audition workshop will be held Sunday to help beginning actors know what to expect during the audition process and to answer questions about participation. A mandatory parent/guardian orientation will be held for all youth who are invited to Call-Back Auditions.

St. Croix Festival Theatre is located in downtown St. Croix Falls at 210 North Washington St. For more information or to register for auditions, call the Festival Theatre Box Office at 715-483-3387.
