Disney’s Alice in Wonderland JR.
June 13 - July 31

Travel down the rabbit hole and join Alice, one of literature’s most beloved heroines, in her madcap adventures. Featuring updated songs from Disney’s thrilling animated motion picture, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland JR. is a fast-paced take on the classic tale.
The ever-curious Alice’s journey begins innocently enough as she chases the White Rabbit. Her adventures become increasingly more strange as she races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game!

Adult Acting/Audition Workshop

Actors: Be Prepared for Opportunity!

Being Prepared and Auditioning On Purpose

Join acting consultant, director, and actor Jerry Lloyd for three workshops that will explore:  Theatre & On-Camera Monologues, Scenes, and Cold Copy  

“A lot of actors don't audition well and, very likely, don't like auditioning because they don't audition well.  Being prepared and being aware of what we ‘put out there,’ and doing it ‘on purpose,’ is something a lot of actors don’t do.  When I am in a casting position, I feel badly for actors who are struggling with their audition, and many times I just want to stop them and tell them what’s working and what’s not.  

"Rarely do actors get feedback about auditions.  My workshops allow participants to get that feedback through the process of mock auditions, along with fixing – and polishing.  You’ll learn what you need in your ‘Toolbox’ in order to be prepared for opportunity, including tips on headshots and resumés.”
— Jerry Lloyd  

Three 3-hour workshops on three different Sundays for a total of 9 workshop hours:  

  • July 10 11:00am — 2:00pm
  • July 17 11:00am — 2:00pm
