Take a mad, musical romp through Wonderland with this original Gerry Cullity musical, adapted from the whimsical tale by Lewis Carroll. A tumble down a rabbit's hole leads Alice to a curious playground filled with fantastic characters like a grinning Cheshire Cat, an eccentric Mad Hatter, the rapping duo of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and, of course, the bossy Queen of Hearts. Join Alice and the Mad Hatter for a mad tea party; watch your favorite playing cards paint the roses red; discover if the Knave of Hearts truly stole some tarts-just don't cross the Queen of Hearts! Parents love sharing this childhood story-turned-musical with their children.
