a new musical

Adaptation by Andrew Barbato
Music & Lyrics by Andrew Barbato & Lesley DeSantis
Adapted from Lewis Carroll’s Alice Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass

Directed by Andrew Barbato
Musical Direction by Robert L. Rucinski

October 17 – November 16, 2014

This new adaptation sends us on a fantastical coming of age adventure. Alice, relying on her wit and empathy, must negotiate the seemingly arbitrary rules of polite society; the tea parties, the poetry recitals, the croquet matches, and the important dates with royalty. In this distorted adult world of Wonderland, will Alice retain her dreams when pressured by the capricious nature of conformity?
