After a chance meeting with the White Rabbit, Alice finds herself tumbling down a seemingly endless rabbit hole. Once she reaches the bottom, she finds her world has been turned upside-down. She meets the tempestuous Queen of Hearts who invites her to play a game of croquet. Things only get more harrowing from there. From treacherous encounters with vengeful queens, to new companions who may not have Alice’s best interests in mind, Wonderland soon loses its luster. If Alice has any hope of getting home to her cat Dinah, she must traverse through dangers of Wonderland to the border of Looking-Glass Land, and become a Queen herself.
WARNING: Alice and her adventures through Wonderland become an allegory for a child facing the nightmare of growing up. It’s a coming of age story where the dream becomes a nightmare. Take an expedition into Wonderland and see a fresh look at the horror of the journey to adulthood. This show features themes of abuse, bullying, drug addiction, alcoholism, narcissism, peer pressure, and selfishness. There are some intense scenes that may not be suitable for children under 16. This is not a children’s theatre production. No child will be admitted without an adult.
