Based on the beloved book by Lewis Carroll, our new musical adaptation will be filled to the brim with magic, puppets, and an original musical score. The play will explore what it means to be a child navigating the world of adults and being asked to play by rules that sometimes make no sense. Ultimately – will Alice be brave enough to say ‘no more’ and topple the cards that are stacked against her? With all the characters you love coming to life onstage, our production will also feature a few fresh surprises, including a menagerie of puppets from String & Shadow Puppet Theater.
A bit more about the play:
This modern-day musical features many of your favorite classic characters – like the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar, the March Hare and more – while bringing up the maddening themes of environmentalism and climate justice. As the Cheshire Cat says, “There’s a good deal to be mad about these days. Anger is all the rage. I am mad, and you are mad – here’s the thing, we all are mad. Where do we go from here? The answer isn’t clear. It’s easy to get lost in the madness.” Join Alice on her adventure through Wonderland as she makes new friends and is faced with an impossible decision: overthrow the Queen of Hearts or allow Wonderland to burn.
A bit more about the installation:
Starting thirty minutes before every performance, ticket holders will be invited to immerse themselves in a 1000-square foot interactive Wonderland art installation filled with live characters, activities, and art. Photos and videos will be allowed during the art installation.
