A modern twist on the classic tale of “Alice in Wonderland”--taken to a whole new level! We’ve added some Original Songs to our story as well as some timeless favorites by artists like The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Tina Turner, whose likenesses appear as characters like the Mad Hatter & Cheshire Cat in this production! And, we simply could not resist making Our Queen of Hearts resemble Lady Gaga, and we’ll spare no expense in the extravagance of her court!
In this version of the story, the Queen is transforming the happy people of Wonderland into her own personal deck of Playing Cards! She calls them her “Lonely Hearts Club,” and they are forced to entertain her majesty & her Evil Princess Daughters or else meet a terrible fate. Luckily, young Alice has fallen into a Rabbit Hole just in the nick of time to save the good people of Wonderland from The Queen’s evil plans. Along the way she meets many new friends that join in her cause, and together they figure out the only way to recapture the hearts of Wonderland and defeat the Evil Queen. The ending is a surprise, but it’s an adventure that’s sure to be legendary!
SHOWS will be performed at the Beautiful BOYD VANCE THEATER in downtown Austin on SAT. & SUN. JAN. 7-8, 2012, complete with costumes, lights, and accompanied by a LIVE BAND! It’s a wonderful learning experience that stays with students for the rest of their lives!
