Alice In Wonderland: A New Musical

May 5, 2023 at 7:00 pm 8:30 pm PDT

Follow us down the rabbit hole as OFT produces a magical new musical adaptation of Alice in Wonderland that will delight audiences of all ages.
Our production of Alice is not your average play – every day before the show audiences will be invited to follow three White Rabbits into a 1,000-square foot interactive and immersive Wonderland art installation – designed by Natalie “Wild Tiny” Coblentz, in OFT’s new O YAA studio space next door.
A bit more about the play:
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.
A bit more about the installation:
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.
