Audition Central: Disney's The Aristocats KIDS

Character Breakdown: The Alley Cats (Hep, Mad, Slick And Wacky)

The Alley Cats (Hep, Mad, Slick and Wacky), although small acting parts, are the glue that holds Disney's The Aristocats KIDS together. These storytellers set up and comment on the action as well as execute the scene changes. These roles require actors with strong speaking voices who can focus onstage for long periods of time. They should also have good memories for the more complicated blocking of scene changes and transitions. Casting extra Alley Cats is a great way to use additional children you may have. Depending upon ability, they can take part in all or only some of the production numbers which call for the Alley Cats. Use some strong singers in these roles to help fill out the sound of the chorus.
