Children's theatre

The Central Lakes College Children’s Theatre class will present “Alice’s Excellent Adventure in Wonderland” by Dennis Lamberson for the public in the Chalberg Theatre Sunday, April 22 at 1 and 3 p.m. The show, which runs about 45 minutes and doesn’t have an intermission, will also be staged for school groups of elementary-age pupils, with tickets not on sale to the public, at 10 and 11 a.m. on April 17, 19, and 26 and 10 a.m. on April 24.

On a lazy summer afternoon, Alice can’t believe her eyes when a white rabbit wearing a waistcoat and carrying a pocket watch dashes by her. Alice chases after him only to fall down a rabbit hole and arrive in a strange land where common sense fails and nonsense reigns supreme!
Throughout her curious and bizarre predicaments, Alice remains sensible and reasonable in spite of meeting an excitable Mad Hatter, a grinning Cheshire cat, a grumpy Humpty Dumpty and the temperamental, croquet-playing Queen, and more.
Based on Lewis Carroll’s unique and unforgettable classic, Central Lakes College’s new version has been adapted for young audiences while keeping the fun and fantasy of the original. This production is suggested for children as young as five.
