About the Show:
Alice is bored with her life and one day, as she’s daydreaming, she stumbles through her mirror to the magical Wonderland ruled over by the Red Queen under the shadow of the mysterious Jabberwocky, a magical world full of new friends and frenemies who seem to need Alice’s help. Why is the Mad Hatter mad, and the White Rabbit always late?
Was Humpty Dumpty pushed or did he fall and why are all the roses painted red? She really wishes Tweedledum and Tweedledee would stop fighting and the Cheshire Cat would stop smiling. What with a smoking Caterpillar, time standing still, and a tea-drinking Dormouse, Alice doesn’t know whether she’s coming or going, but the big question is will she become Queen or go back to her “ordinary” life or is life in the upside-down world of Wonderland better?
