About the Show
A children's musical set in Wonderland's courtroom where Alice is on trial for growing and changing.
Based on the classic books by Lewis Carroll, this original hour-long musical follows Alice and all the usual suspects in the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland. 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 re-live the events of her adventures and try to prove her innocence. Her crime? Growing and changing. Helping her (as well as hindering her) are Tweedledee and Tweedledum, who spend most of the performance trying to decide who is defense and who is prosecution.
"William J. Brooke's book is full of comic wordplay and Joanne Bogart's lyrics follow suit. With a memorable score by Eric Rockwell, who also directed, this hourlong show is likely to send children home singing ''Off With Her Head.'' But don't worry: no one here is condemned to anything but a good time."
