Alicia in Wonderland by Don Macrae and Ted Blackbourn
Hold on tight! When you fall a thousand miles down a rabbit hole, you have to expect the unexpected. From the wicked Queen of Hearts to the dizzy Mad Hatter. You see, someone has stolen the Queen's tarts and guess who the prime suspect is? It's a matter of survival for Alicia and her lovable cat, Dinah. And all those familiar characters – plus some delightful new ones – aren't helping very much. Get set for more ups and downs than on a roller coaster ride, more twists and turns than in a pretzel, more strange surprises than you could wish for in a lifetime! This fun-filled musical, featuring lots of audience participation, will thrill the whole family with songs and riddles, laughter and adventure. Excitement you could only find with a little girl named Alicia! And only in a place called Wonderland!
