Audition Announcements: Thursday, February 20, 2014
Come join STAGE for its first musical auditions of the year: Alice and the Eight Princesses. You never know what you will find when you step through the looking glass.
One girl is lost wandering through an unknown land. One king is faced with the mystery of his disappearing daughters. One prince attempts to win the hand of his love or it's off with his head. One hatter is just plain mad. A cast of unlikely characters is faced with deception, unrequited love, and... stolen pastry? They may even throw in a song or two. Who can solve the crazy mysteries of Alice and the Eight Princesses?
This event is only open for Cast, Crew, and Imagineers of the Walt Disney Company.
Casting will be made for numerous roles in this show. Musically, please prepare 16 bars unaccompanied (preferably a piece written before 1960, folk and classical songs encouraged). Also be prepared for a cold reading from the script. Please check in with a STAGE representative at the entrance to the lobby at least ten minutes prior to the event.
For casting information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

“Thank you Mario, but our princess is in another castle.”
Christmas morning was the one morning I never had a problem getting up when I was a child. The second my eyes opened, my sister and I would rush out to the hallway and sit at the top of the stairs and waited for mom and dad to say it was okay to go down. On one of those early mornings, my sister and I rushed to the living room to find one of the best Christmas gifts we would ever receive, a Nintendo. Little did we know, this would be the only gaming system we would ever own. Many years later, I listened to friends talk about their Super Nintendo and their Sega and N64’s and other various systems. My sister and I would continue, for many years, to play our small collection of games of Super Mario Brothers and a Beetlejuice game we once found at a pawn shop.

I wasn’t the popular kid in school. Who was really? At my five year high school reunion, I found out from one of the “popular” girls that she never felt popular. I spent the evening with old friends and a girl I had never said more than five words to back in school and we both asked the question, “Why weren’t we friends back then?” Thanks to Facebook, we can now comment on each others’ statuses and invite each other to events that we know the other will never make it to. Looks like high school could have been quite different if we had just talked. But the barriers at that age are set by an invisible fence that keeps the “popular” kids separate from the non-populars based on their first impressions. And as much as I love the movie, Mean Girls, I have to admit, my high school wasn’t the extreme social structure that other people my age experienced in their teenage years. I actually attended a school that was pretty open and progressive with its social structure but we were by no means immune to the phenomenon of Queen Bees and Wannabes.
