The Academy of Children’s Theatre will be staging an original musical production of “Alice in Wonderland” May 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, and 12. Featuring a cast of 54 youth actors, the show is directed by Ginny Quinley, who also originally adapted the script. Music director is Steve Haberman, who created all original music and lyrics for the engaging and classic story. Choreography is being coordinated by a consortium of ACT students.
In the lead roles are Lauren Tanninen as Alice, Katy Connors as The Red Queen, and the Mad Hatter is portrayed by Emma Tomlinson.
The show follows the imaginative plot of the book, traveling with Alice down the rabbit hole in one of literature’s most beloved tales. The ever-curious Alice’s journey begins innocently enough as she chases the White Rabbit. Her adventures become increasingly stranger as she races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game.
ACT’s “Alice in Wonderland” features outstanding music, dance, acting, comedy, costumes, and sets. Tickets are $16 for general admission; $13 for students/seniors/ military; and $10 for ages 12 and under. Recommended for the whole family, ages 5 and older.
