Oddfellows Junior Repertory Company 2020 production of “The Love of Three Oranges”

Young people wishing to audition must pre-register for one of the two audition dates by contacting the Playhouse. Auditioners do not need to prepare anything, but should arrive on time, dress to move, and plan on staying for the entire 2 hours. Auditions will include cold reads from the script as well as light choreography. Everyone who auditions and commits to the rehearsal and production schedule will be cast in the show!

“Curiouser and curiouser!” Based on the works of Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland is a fantastical journey into a dream world where anything is possible!. After tumbling down the rabbit hole, young Alice finds herself involved in a series of satiric, madcap adventures featuring a Mad Tea Party hosted by the Hatter himself, a royal game of croquet with her majesty the Queen of Hearts, and all manner of mishaps and madness along the way. So join us as we venture into Wonderland, where sense can always be made out of nonsense (and vice versa) and curiosity & imagination light the way! A show for the young and young at heart, Alice in Wonderland is directed by Program Manager Daniel Schmidt with choreography by dance artist Natalia Sandrine.

Rehearsals will be Mondays and Thursdays, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. starting January 10, 2022. There will be technical rehearsals & daily rehearsals, March 12 – 16. Performances will be March 17, 18 & 19 at 7:00 p.m., with matinee performances on March 19 and 20 at 2:00 p.m. at Oddfellows Playhouse.
