Missoula Children’s Theatre: Alice in Wonderland
What happens when Alice falls down a rabbit hole? She goes on a wonderful journey with singing lobsters, a giant caterpillar, and the Cheshire Cat! Join Alice on an adventure that keeps getting “curiouser and curiouser” when the Missoula Children’s Theatre and Socorro’s youth present an original musical adaptation of Alice in Wonderland!
Shows will be Sat. June 24, 2017 at 1:00 and 3:00 pm.
The Missoula Children’s Theatre presents Alice in Wonderland, an original adaptation based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. The story begins with Alice and her older sister Margaret reading together. Margaret becomes frustrated, as Alice is curious about absolutely everything. Suddenly, a White Rabbit appears from nowhere. After a quick and nonsensical conversation, Alice follows the rabbit to a strange and wonderful place. In the course of her adventures, Alice meets a band of Flowers, the King and Queen of Hearts, the Knave and the rest of the suit of Cards, a giant Caterpillar, a Fish, a Frog, the Duchess, the Cook, the Cheshire Cat, the Gryphon, the Mock Turtle, a group of singing Lobsters, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the March Hare, the Mad Hatter, the Dormouse and Humpty Dumpty. Through it all, Alice grows “curiouser and curiouser” as to where she is and even who she is. In the end, the answers she seeks are unimportant. Wonderland is all nonsense, anyway. As the White Rabbit explains, “Nonsense is fun!”
