Mark your calendars! We are pleased to announce that this year’s auditions for W.O.W’s production of Alice in Wonderland will be taking place Saturday, May 24th.

Auditions will take place over one day (the 24th) from 10a.m. – 12p.m., 2p.m. – 6p.m. and 8p.m. – 10p.m. in the Sackville Public Library basement. They are open so anyone is free to audition and you don’t have to sign up for a spot in advance.

If you absolutely cannot make this day, then please email us at productions.willothewisp@gmail.com and we will do our very best to set up an alternative time for your audition!

Here are the suggested audition monologues:

WHITE RABBIT: Attention, attention, inhabitants and subjects and all other direct or indirect objects of Wonderland: fall to your knees and tremble before her majestic majesty, her royal regality, yes, folks, your favorite monarch of mean and mine, The One, The Only, Queen of Hearts!!!…. And, uhm, well, let’s not forget the King of Hearts. Yeah, him too.

ALICE: Why, how impolite of him. I asked him a civil question, and he pretended not to hear me. That’s not at all nice. [Calling after him] I say, Mr. White Rabbit, where are you going? Hmmm. He won’t answer me. And I do so want to know what he is late for. I wonder if I might follow him. Why not? There’s no rule that I mayn’t go where I please. I–I will follow him. Wait for me, Mr. White Rabbit. I’m coming, too!

QUEEN OF HEARTS: And just what do we have here, hmmmm? .. Silence! We speak the Queen’s English here, you nameless little whelp! .. You’ll be who I say you are and no one else, do you understand? Furthermore, you will not go anywhere until you beat me in Wonderland’s favourite pastime. And I don’t mean a game of croquet using upside-down flamingos instead of croquet mallets. My dear young girl, croquet is so nineteenth century. I want to play Simon Says!
