Quote of the Day: from Lewis Carroll’s book Alice in Wonderland
“Do you think I’ve gone round the bend?”
“I’m afraid so. You’re mad, bonkers, completely off your head. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”

As you can see by these amazing photos, The Children’s Theater Company production of Alice in Wonderland is as colorful and full of animation as anything you’ve ever seen. This is a high energy show that carries you away into a fantastic dreamland where grinning cats are larger than life and royal croquet games are played with flamingos as mallets and hedgehogs as the ball. Alice attends the most unusual tea party, and she matches wits with a deck of cards. You wouldn’t want to close your eyes for more than a blink or you might miss all the wild sight gags, physical humor, and visual brilliance of this show.
The key to any great performance is a creative team. The list of cast and crew for this production is long and the applause goes to all of them. I was especially impressed with the musician Victor Zupanc (composer, sound designer, and Foley artist), a stunning one-man band.
Millie and Willie Cottonpoly (sock puppets) and the girls loved the show!
Alice in Wonderland is playing through June 15, 2013, at The Children’s Theatre. Go there for show times and ticket information. Remember, that if you stop in or call the box office on Sundays, starting at noon, there are a limited number of seats for the following week’s performances for $10. This is your chance to slip into Wonderland and see where dreams can take you!
Go. Create. Inspire!
