Auditions for Alice in Wonderland

Not really feeling yourself lately? Perhaps you're ten feet tall? But if you find yourself sitting on a mushroom, having a cup of tea with strange company, swimming with a Mock Turtle, talking to a cat and watching a rushed white rabbit hop by, you're definitely in Alice's Wonderland. 

More than 30 characters make up this adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. Join the BCA in our annual partnership with Monmouth's Department of Theatre to become the Mock Turtle, Caterpillar, Footman, Tweedledee, Mad Hatter, Alice, the Queen, or any other character from Louis Carroll's world.
