About the Show:

ALICE@WONDERLAND—THE MUSICAL BASED ON THE WORKS OF LEWIS CARROLL Adapted for the stage by JONATHAN YUKICH Music by BILL FRANCOEUR Lyrics by SCOTT DeTURK with additional lyrics by BILL FRANCOEUR

The folly of the 21st century collides with the madness of Wonderland in this rockin’ musical adaptation that remains fairly faithful to Lewis Carroll’s original tale. The twist? Alice is a texting, tweeting, and Googling girl of the modern digital era, yet she finds herself in the Wonderland of old. With all of the characters you know and love including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, and the Queen of Hearts, this musical imagines a present-day Alice encountering the Wonderland so many of us treasure. Meanwhile, the younger generation will appreciate and relate to the many references to texting and social networking. And the contemporary sounding new score by beloved composer Bill Francoeur and lyricist Scott DeTurk will delight all. A sharply told, crisply paced ride, this quality adaptation has been praised for its humor, artistic modern style, and appeal to both children and adults.

We hope to offer a position to all who audition and desire to give kids of all ages a chance to experience a live theater.  We will also need backstage help, sets, costumes, orchestra, and makeup; students and adults may be used in these roles. For pre-K age participants we ask an adult to accompany them to all activities if they are not yet potty trained.
