The Lost Pages of
Alice in Wonderland:
Revenge of the Dead
Open to adults and youth of all ages. There is no fee to participate, including youth actors who are granted a scholarship to study and perform tuition-free!
ABOUT THE PLAY: Get ready for non-stop laughter as The Lost Pages series continues! All of your favorite Lost Pages characters and more are coming back to Tulsa Little Theatre! The Lost Pages is a book/play/web series written by Encore! Tulsa's Artistic Director/Producer, Joshua Branson Barker, and is a twist on several beloved fairy tales with intertwining plots and characters much like Into the Woods and Once Upon a Time, but with the humor of Shrek and Mega Mind. These stories are tied together by the adventures of an original character named the Phantom Fairy, who is the Chosen One and the prophesied savior of the world. As a young sorcerer's apprentice, Phantom was framed by a dark sorceress for crimes he did not commit, which set him down an alternate path of evil, and led him to become the greatest villain of all time. In this epic fifth story in a seven-part series, our storyline continues from The Lost Pages of Snow White: Quest for the Dark Scrolls. Phantom has abandoned his villainous ways and embarks on a magnificent adventure to the curious world of Wonderland alongside Alice, Prince Charming, Puss in Boots, Red Riding Hood, and other fairy tale characters to thwart the Queen of Hearts, Maleficent, Wicked Witch, Morgan Le Fay, and other villainous creatures. Before the Evil Queen was killed in the story of Snow White, she cast a New Life spell and was reincarnated in the world of Wonderland’s past. After she quickly took over the rule of this mad, strange world, she became known as the Queen of Hearts. After the arrival of Alice, the Queen discovers that the rabbit hole leads back to her former world, Charming Kingdom. The Queen then joins an alliance with the new ruler of the world of Oz, Maleficent. With their dark alliance they plan to use their new found powers to resurrect the Wicked Witch from her ashes. Will these dark sorceress’ succeed in their wicked plans to destroy the prophesy of the Prime Merlinian, a.k.a the Phantom Fairy, and take over the worlds? Or will Phantom, Alice, Prince Charming, Puss in Boots, Merlin, Fairy Godmother, Fairy Godfather, Red Riding Hood, along with the help of two unexpected time-traveler warriors, Shadow and Dust, be strong enough to best these wicked witches and stop the revenge of the dead? Or is there an even greater evil lurking on the horizon that will mean the end of the Phantom Fairy?
With sword-fights, pyrotechnics, special effects, beautiful sets and costumes, and crazy humor, The Lost Pages of Alice in Wonderland is a fun, hilarious, and unique fantasy-adventure for the whole family!
Actors who audition may also be considered for roles in the two other Lost Pages plays included in this next trilogy series: The Lost Pages of Peter Pan: Curse of the Jolly Roger and The Lost Pages of Beauty and the Beast: Rise of the Prime Merlinian. As well as other Lost Pages origin stories. Plus, The Lost Pages web series (coming soon).

AVAILABLE ROLES AS OF 7/18/19:
At this time, we are considering all ages— including older to play younger— and younger to play older— for the roles of Alice, Red Riding Hood, Merlin, Maleficent, and many other characters. There are characters for ALL ages, genders, enthnicities, and acting experience levels! We are looking for 40+ energetic, comedic actors to bring this hilarious and fast-paced play to the Tulsa stage. We are open to all voices/accents/dialects, and are excited to see actors who make bold character choices, jump at the chance to use crazy voices and accents, and aren't afraid to improv or try something new. The director, Joshua Branson Barker, is also the writer of this project, and he loves to adapt the script to suit the unique looks and talents of the actors.
ALICE (Teen/Young Adult Female) - Seeking a seasoned, well-trained actress who embodies the grace, poise, joy, and innocence of this classic character. She is youthful and exuberant, and should move well and/or have basic dance training as this character performs in one of the show's two dance numbers.
MALEFICENT (Adult Female) - Seeking a fierce, well-trained actress with strong stage presence as well as extensive stage combat training/experience. Must also move well, as she participates in a dance sequence while under a spell. She is a refined, graceful sort of evil who can effortlessly intimidate her enemies. There are opportunities to add a comical flair to this character, but the overall portrayal should be so severe that the rare moments of humor are unexpected and almost creepy.
SINISTER (Considering Male/Female) - All ages for the right actor who can play this complex character. Sinister is an innocent crow whom Maleficent enchants to speak and even aid Maleficent in her evil deeds. Must be convincingly evil, but also have strong comedy skills for a hilarious scene where Sinister mistakes a character disguised as a bird for a real, beautiful, attractive bird. British accent preferred, but we're open to other ideas.
RUMPLESTILTSKIN (Adult/Teen Male) - Phantom's best friend who betrays him and joins Maleficent in her evil schemes. Seeking a versatile actor capable of both comedy and drama to play the unpredictable, off-kilter Rumpelstiltskin. Scottish/Irish accents are preferred.
QUEEN OF HEARTS (Teen/Young Adult Female) - Once the Evil Queen in The Lost Pages of Snow White, she has now become an even more powerful dark sorceress in death. Before being defeated in the story of Snow White, the Evil Queen, cast a New Life spell, transporting all of her powers and soul to the world of Wonderland. Must have stage combat training/experience. Must move well or easily pick up on choreography for two dance scenes.

Dance experience a plus, but not required if the actor can easily pick up basic dance choreography.
PRINCE ROBERT CHARMING (Teen/Adult Male) - Much like his older brother, William. They are both very competitive toward each other and are alike in almost every way.

FLORA, FAUNA, and MERRIWEATHER (Youth/Teen Female) - The pretty, sassy, out-spoken fairies who protect Briar Rose while she's in hiding. Looking for three young comedic actresses with their own spunky personalities, but who have great chemistry together.
WIZARD OF OZ (Adult Male) - A genius, eccentric wizard, brother to Merlin. If you can do a Doc Brown (Back to the Future) impersonation, we want to see you audition!

After he was captured, he was sentenced to Pixie Penitentiary and his wings were shrunk as a form of punishment by the Fairy Council.
