    About the Show
    Travel down the rabbit hole and join Alice's madcap adventures in Wonderland! Lewis Carroll's famous inquisitive heroine comes to life in this fun and fast-paced re-imagining of the classic story. Join Alice as she chases the White Rabbit, challenges the Mad Hatter, gets tied up with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and tries to beat the Queen of Hearts at her own game! There are plenty of wonderfully wacky characters, providing plentiful opportunities to showcase every participating student. Join us on this edgy and wild ride!
