And shine they did with scene after scene of wonder and laughter. But Currier also focused on “Alice as a coming of age story… This young woman’s quest is to answer the Caterpillar’s query: ‘Who are you?’ and this is a question Alice has trouble with until the very end. Her tasks are to unravel words, to unpuzzle personalities, to navigate changing rules of society, and to find herself within herself. It is a very female journey, learning how one’s perception of things shapes reality.”
This entire cast truly shines but Darren Bridgett as The Mad Hatter, Mouse and Cook; George Maguire as Lory, Caterpillar, March Hare and King of Hearts; Matthew Henerson as Duck, Pat and Duchess: and Emily McGowan as Eaglet, Pigeon, Dormouse, and Knave of Hearts deserve special mention for their maddening creative renditions of their multiple roles. Also there could be no better Alice and White Rabbit then Hannah Rose Kornfield and Jack Powell respectively.
Don’t miss this delightful evening of entertainment for the entire family with music composed by Billie Cox. No need for the Jefferson Airplane in this production, Cox’s wide range of talent takes us from polkas to jazz and will keep you hopping down that rabbit hole of a young girl’s adventures.
