Alice in Wonderland Poster.

Alice in Wonderland

BY ANDREW O’LEARY
DIRECTED BY PAULINE GRILLER-MITCHELL
PRODUCED BY PAULINE GRILLER-MITCHELL and LAUREN PACUIT

Alice goes down a rabbit hole and encounters the Queen of Hearts, her husband the King of Hearts, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter and all the tea party participants, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, plus, of course, the Dame and her son Jack.  Our story is told in traditional “panto” style with song, dance, dialogue, jokes, gags, and mild innuendo. Audience participation encouraged. A family treat for all ages.
