Description:

A Very Merry Unbirthday to You!

Travel down the rabbit hole and join Alice, one of literature’s most beloved heroines, in her madcap adventures! The ever-curious Alice’s journey begins innocently enough as she chases the White Rabbit and falls tumbling down the rabbit hole. Her adventures become increasingly more strange as she races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game! Featuring updated songs from Disney’s animated motion picture, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland Jr. is an exciting take on this classic story!  

Disney's Alice in Wonderland Jr. is CharacterWorks' 2019 summer Show Camp production, performed by a cast of middle school students at the conclusion of a two-week camp. For more information about Show Camp and camp registration, click here.

Characters:

Alice

Alice is the show's titular inquisitive and an intrepid young girl. On a journey of self-discovery, the adventurous Alice has the heart of an explorer and instincts of a leader. Even when frustrated or confused, she's awfully charming.

Small Alice

A different sized version of Alice.

Tall Alice

A different sized version of Alice.

The Cheshire Cat

The Cheshire Cat is played by three separate actors. The Cheshire Cat is the perpetually grinning narrator of the story, a magical feline who doesn't always agree with itself.

White Rabbit

The White Rabbit is an energetic, worrisome character that hardly ever stops moving.

Tweedle Dum

Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee are twins with an identity crisis and an exhausting enthusiasm for proper manners. Superfluously silly, the Tweedles are a comedy duo a la Abbot & Costello and Laurel & Hardy.

Tweedle Dee

Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee are twins with an identity crisis and an exhausting enthusiasm for proper manners. Superfluously silly, the Tweedles are a comedy duo a la Abbot & Costello and Laurel & Hardy.

Mathilda

Mathilda is Alice's scholarly sister, and has no time for silly games.

The Flowers

The Flowers (Rose, Petunia, Lily, Violet, Daisy) are a stuck-up group of pleasing perennials.

Caterpillar

Caterpillar is Alice's wise and fabulous mentor. In fact, if she had a fairy godmother, this cool Caterpillar would be it.

Mad Hatter

The Mad Hatter is the life of the (tea) party and has a penchant for making up rules. Delightfully eccentric, the Mad Hatter has a flair for the theatrical and very little focus.

March Hare

The March Hare is the Mad Hatter's chummy sidekick and enjoys a good party. Just slightly more rational than the Mad Hatter, the March Hare lets the frenetic Hatter lead the way, while never passing up the chance to play a silly game.

Queen Of Hearts

The Queen of Hearts is the hotheaded and overbearing ruler of Wonderland.

King Of Hearts

The King of Hearts, the Queen's husband, has a timid demeanor until taking expert command of Alice's trial.

Doorknob

The Doorknob is the gatekeeper of Wonderland and knowingly encourages Alice to drink the magic potion.

Dodo Bird

The Dodo Bird is the imperious captain of the Queen's Navy and leads the caucus race.

Ensemble

Park Kids, Sea Creatures, Royal Cards, Party Guests, etc.
