ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Book, Music, and Lyrics by John Allman
Based on the novel by Lewis Carroll
Follow Alice on a madcap adventure down the rabbit hole and into a magical fantasyland. Local author/composer John Allman’s spin on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland becomes curiouser and curiouser the further down you go and features characters from the book not typically brought to life on stage. Follow sweet Alice in Alice in Wonderland as she stumbles upon crazy tea parties, a wily Cheshire Cat and has a bizarre encounter with the tyrannical Queen of Hearts.
