Alice In Wonderland: A New Musical
May 5 at 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm PDT
This modern-day musical features many of your favorite classic characters – like the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar, the March Hare and more – while bringing up the maddening themes of environmentalism and climate justice. As the Cheshire Cat says, “There’s a good deal to be mad about these days. Anger is all the rage. I am mad, and you are mad – here’s the thing, we all are mad. Where do we go from here? The answer isn’t clear. It’s easy to get lost in the madness.” Join Alice on her adventure through Wonderland as she makes new friends and is faced with an impossible decision: overthrow the Queen of Hearts or allow Wonderland to burn.
Starting thirty minutes before every performance, ticket holders will be invited to immerse themselves in a 1000-square foot interactive Wonderland art installation filled with live characters, activities, and art. Photos and videos will be allowed during the art installation.
