About ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’
One afternoon, young Alice curiously steps into the portrait that is being painted of her. She is transported into a wondrous world that is home to all manner of curious creatures. As Alice tries to make sense of this world of grown-up nonsense, she meets the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, Humpty Dumpty, the Tweedles, the Gryphon, the Mock Turtle, and, of course, the infamous Queen of Hearts.
Carroll’s novel, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” was published in November 1865 and has become one of the best-selling stories of all time. A sequel, “Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There,” was published in 1871.
The play is family friendly, but because of the length of the show, the production is not recommended for children under 5 years old.
The cast includes Dagmara M. Bragiel as Alice; Kody L. Williams as White Rabbit and Painter; Theodore K. Woolsey as Caterpillar, Mock Turtle and White Knight; Johanna Dela Rosa as Dodo, Duchess and Gryphon; Cage Sagan as Cheshire Cat and March Hare; Leianne “Annie” Misischia as Mouse, Rose, Tweedledee, Humpty and Knave #1; Sarah H.
