Children’s Show Auditions August 23

Auditions for our annual children’s show, “Alice In Wonderland” will be held Friday, August 23rd beginning at 6:00 at New Minowa Players Theatre, 906 South Mill Street, Decorah. Auditions will last approximately one hour. No actor preparation is necessary, but please bring a list of conflicts you have between our first rehearsal on August 26th through our final performance on October 27th.


The children’s show is an opportunity for actors in kindergarten through eighth grade to shine. Everyone who auditions will be in the show. Everyone who wants lines to speak will have them.  Everyone who wants to sing a solo will be allowed to do so. There is no pressure to do either of those things. Some actors prefer to be in the chorus. Auditions help the director assign parts appropriately.

Rehearsals will be Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:00-7:30 beginning Monday, August 26. The week of performances, rehearsals will be longer, running 5:15-7:30, and will include a Wednesday rehearsal. Performance dates are October 24-27, with evening performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:00, and a Sunday matinee at 2:00.
