Based on two of the greatest works in children’s literature, this fast–paced and witty show is set in Wonderland’s courtroom, where Alice is on trial. The Queen of Hearts is the judge, the Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, and Caterpillar are witnesses, and the jury is a deck of cards! Poor Alice must try to prove her innocence by re–living the events of the adventures we’ve all come to love.
Her crime? Growing and changing. Both helping and hindering her are Tweedledee and Tweedledum, who spend most of their time trying to decide who is the attorney for the defense and who for the prosecution. To win the case, Alice must embrace the truth about who she is and be willing to wake up from the dream of Wonderland.
Throughout the play you will see Alice struggle with her identity. You will hear songs like “Who are you?” and “Dear Me,” which compliment her identity quest. At the end of the program, Caterpillar reminds her that who she was in the past is what made her who she is now.
