Roles are plentiful, including three Cheshire Cats and dozens of other wonderfully wacky characters.

ALICE, SMALL ALICE, TALL ALICE
Alice, Small Alice and Tall Alice are differently sized versions of the same character. She is a spunky girl who enjoys adventures and is on a journey of self-discovery. She should be charming to the audience and be able to command the stage by herself.
Caterpillar, part sensei, part diva, the Caterpillar is comprised of five actors who play the head, body and all those hands, which move in synchronized gestures to help emphasize a point. The Caterpillar is one cool character who needs to be able to sing, dance, and act well. He provides the heart for the story and really convinces Alice to be herself.
The Chorus (Kids Playing in the Park, Rock Lobsters, Talking Fish, Royal Cardsmen, Unbirthday Partiers, etc.) actors and singers who are featured in all of the production numbers. There are many opportunities for featured moments for many ensemble members.
The Dodo Bird is the Captain of the Queen's Navy and needs to be a good actor and singer. He is in command of the lobsters and other animals and is another of Wonderland's vibrant characters.
The Doorknob is a wonderful additional role for a chorus member who is very funny. The character is based somewhat on Jimmy Durante.
KING OF HEARTS
The King of Hearts is the often forgotten ruler of Wonderland. You need to have a good actor for this role who can handle some very high-level vocabulary.
The Mad Hatter is the life of the tea party and should be performed by someone who enjoys acting larger than life. The actor needs to be comfortable being silly.
The March Hare is the counterpart to the Mad Hatter and also enjoys a good party. A little less crazy than the Mad Hatter, the March Hare is a happy fun character who enjoys playing.
Mathilda is Alice's older sister and a non-singing role. She should be a strong actor who can speak loudly and clearly.
QUEEN OF HEARTS
The Queen of Hearts is the big mean bully of the story. The Queen of Hearts must have a commanding presence and should be a little scary, but funny at the same time.
THE CHESHIRE CAT
The Cheshire Cat is played by three separate actors who play the head, the body, and the tail of the cat. The Cheshire Cat serves as the Narrator for the story and the actors who are cast need to be able to speak clearly and be good storytellers.
The Flowers (Rose, Petunia, Lily, Violet, Daisy) are the snooty, mean girls who think they are the most important people in the whole world. They need to be good performers and singers who can handle harmonies.
TWEEDLE DUM & TWEEDLE DEE
Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee are a pair of goofballs similar to old comedy teams like Abbott & Costello or Laurel & Hardy. They should be good singers and actors who work well as a team.
The White Rabbit is an energetic, worrisome character that hardly ever stops moving.
