In the rubble of the London Blitz of World War II, Alice Spencer’s budding teen life is turned upside down, and she and her dear friend Alfred are forced to take shelter in an underground tube station. When the ailing Alfred is quarantined, Alice encourages him to escape with her into their cherished book and journey down the rabbit hole to Wonderland.

Show Notes:

  • CYT students ages 8-18 who are currently enrolled in a class in a class at Bayside Adventure are eligible to audition for ALICE BY HEART or JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, JR.
  • An online audition form will be emailed to all students enrolled in a CYT class who selected to participate in auditions. The form will require a bio, photo upload, music track upload, and costume measurements in addition to other information. 
  • Some who audition may also be requested to attend a Callback on the second date. 

VOCAL & PRELIMINARY DANCE AUDITIONS: Tuesday, February 18th LOCATION: Bayside Adventure Church (6401 Stanford Ranch Road)
Students will sign up for a 20 min group audition slot sometime between 4 - 8:30pm.  Audition songs should be to music (not accapella). Please choose a track with no accompanying vocals (such as a karaoke track). Audition music should be no more than 1 minute.  The director needs to see how well the student can stay with the music, both in tune and in rhythm. You will be able to upload your music to the audition form. It's best if you have a YouTube link or an actual song - we cannot support iTunes, Spotify or Amazon files. Students will learn choreography at home via video and will come ready to perform it for the directors along with the other students in the audition group at the end of their time slot. 

CALLBACKS (including Featured Dancers): Wednesday February 19th 4:00pm-9:00pm. The directors will call back certain students to sing, read a scene, dance, or any combination of these. They will often ask pairs or groups of students to read scenes to see how different combinations of kids work together. CYT callbacks are closed to everyone except the show directors. Students may be released prior to 3pm. If a student is not called back, it does not mean that they will not be cast in the show.

  • Students who audition are NOT eligible for a class tuition refund regardless of casting.
  • All students cast in the show will be charged a production fee of $210.
  • ALL families are required to volunteer A MINIMUM OF 20 HOURS on a parent team.
