Alice in Wonderland
June 5-14, 2015
Adapted by Tim Kelly

When curious Alice falls down, down, down the rabbit hole, she discovers the magical world of Wonderland where cats can talk and cards play croquet. But, Alice is sure to miss her birthday party if she can’t convince the Queen of Hearts to let her go! With the help of the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, and a whole cast of wacky companions, Alice must unleash the full power of her imagination to find her way home. Join us for this theatrical adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic story and discover all there is to wonder about. We recommend this production for ages 4 and older.
